The Resy Lineup: Halloweekend Events, a New Speakeasy, and Miss Lily’s in Soho Is Back!

By

Welcome to the Resy Lineup, your regular dose of recommendations on what to eat, drink, and see — updated on a weekly basis.

In this weeks edition: Get mesmerized by yakitori, treat yourself to a tapas takeout lunch, and find multiple ways to get into the Halloween spirit every single day this week.

 

Week of October 25

The Restaurant Rec

Yakitori Torishin, because there’s nothing like watching chefs slowly cook skewers over a binchotan charcoal grill. And Torishin’s yakitori just happens to be stellar — both the select and omakase counter seats promise a whirlwind of an experience that’ll have you rethink chicken in every bite. Book here.

 

The Drink Proposal

Cozy up in Manhattan’s latest speakeasy, hidden in a pre-war cellar below a pâtisserie, with one of Thyme Bar’s exceptional floral cocktails. The Sage and Savage is a good place to start — honey and chamomile-infused gin, mixed with Grand Marnier and sweet Sauternes wine.

 

The Event Invite

All of the Halloweekend happenings. Are you ready?

On Friday, Casa Mezcal is hosting a day of the dead party with a live DJ. Nearby in the East Village, Nowon is curating a themed Squid Game dinner party on Saturday and Sunday (only outdoor tickets are left!). In the West Village, Bandits is putting its disco décor to use and throwing a 70’s costumed dance party all weekend long. Prefer a good scare? The Standard Grill’s got you covered this week, with horror flicks scheduled every single day (scroll down to see the full program).

 

The Takeout Move

All the tapas at Boqueria. The vaunted Barcelona-style tapas bar excels in the at-home format, so should you need cheese, charcturie or any of their perfect small bites for your next dinner party, you know where to go. Order online from any of their four New York locations.

Pro tip: If you’re looking for a more thrilling work-from-home lunch, Boqueria’s Tapas Lunch (three tapas for $18) is the move for you.

 

The Weekend Pairing

Tacos and a museum. Because you really don’t want to miss out on trying Philly’s favorite taqueria. That’s right, South Philly Barbacoa is coming to the Rockefeller Center for a three-day pop-up (Oct. 29-31) as part of the Mexican consulate’s week-long Diá de Muertos celebration. So, fuel up before heading to MoMA right next door — here’s what’s showing.

 

From The Tipline

It’s time to finally welcome back a Soho favorite: Miss Lily’s is back for the first time since the pandemic, so make some bottomless brunch reservations, stat, if you know what’s good for you.

Separately, Nina Compton’s takeover at Intersect just launched last week, and trust us, this is one residency you’re not going to want to miss. Resy away.

Week of October 18

The Restaurant Rec

Thaimee Love, because cozying up to a bowl of Northern Thai-style chicken soup is our idea of peak fall heaven. Chef Hong Thaimee’s pop-up has now become a permanent brick-and-mortar, and in addition to her roll call of excellent “baan baan” homestyle comfort food (see the lamb shank green curry), the new tasting menu ($180 for two) is absolutely worth delving into. Book over here.

 

The Drink Proposal

The N.R.I (Non-Resident Indian) cocktail at Dhamaka, an incredible concoction of Scotch whisky infused with star anise, Cointreau, and coconut cream, poured over a coconut ice ball. Best sipped on their outdoor patio, slowly, with a perfect plate of fried paplet for snacking.

 

The Event Invite

All wine aficionados, right this way: Chama Mama, the Georgian restaurant known for its incredible regional specialties, is hosting a taste of Georgian wine tonight — think nearly 70 acclaimed and underrated wineries from this Old World wine country — at its Chelsea location from 5 to 9 p.m. Tickets are still left ($65/person)!

 

The Takeout Move

You’re going to want to be on the Lower East Side this Sunday, Oct. 24. Pasta destination Forsythia is throwing a block party, featuring to-go food and drinks from some of their favorite restaurants. Expect to see bites from Dame, Caffè Panna, Dante, and more, with all proceeds going to God’s Love We Deliver. No tickets needed.

 

The Weekend Pairing

A boozy brunch and a museum, or the ideal October afternoon.

The East Village’s favorite mezcal bar is hosting the award-winning podcasters behind Agave Road Trip for a very special mezcal brunch ($65/person) this Sunday, featuring five special pours and King David tacos. Tickets over here.

Then, head to the Whitney for the latest Jasper Johns retrospective, which the museum is dubbing the most comprehensive ever. More details here. Pro tip: The Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror exhibit is running until Feb. 13, but you’re going to want to go while there’s still a bit of sun out and not during the bitter cold.

 

From The Tipline

Danny Meyer’s latest restaurant is officially open! Before you head to Ci Siamo for chef Hillary Sterling’s fire-licked menu, here’s everything you need to know about this hot new opening.

Week of October 11

The Restaurant Rec

Nami Nori, because Manhattan’s favorite temaki destination just opened a second location in Williamsburg. Think the same sleek and wooden minimalist setup, but with two sushi counters instead of one, plus new dishes and hand rolls to ring in the opening (we’re looking at you, Phancy Philly — smoked salmon, caviar, cream cheese, and chives). Right this way.

 

The Drink Proposal

Order yourself a When Smokey Sings cocktail at Casa Ora. A creamy, almost horchata-like boozy concoction of Sombra mezcal, chicha de arroz, cinnamon, and mint, it’s best sipped inside this Venezuelan restaurant’s moody dining room.

 

The Event Invite

What happens when two Taiwanese venues with cult followings collide? All we can say is it’s a collab you’re not going to want to miss. Double Chicken Please and Win Son Bakery are joining forces this Sunday, Oct. 17 (book these booths!) for something “super QQ clux deluxe,” as per Win Son; more details to come here.

 

The Splurge

A dinner for you and five of your closest friends from a chef on the rise. After popping up all over Mexico City, chef Ricardo Verdejo is coming to Greenpoint next Monday, Oct. 18, courtesy of pop-up haven Fulgurances. Expect a seasonal tasting menu ($540 for a six-person table or $90/person), great tunes, and an optional wine pairing from Pierre Buffet. Book it here.

 

The Takeout Move

PSA: Sobre Masa is still doing its incredible Carnitas Sunday, where a pound of carnitas made with local heritage pork plus all of the fixings (tortillas, salsas, and garnishes) can be yours for only $40. We thought you should know, in case you wanted to take advantage of what could be the last sunny, not-yet-freezing weekend. Layer up.

 

From The Tipline

This just in: Barbuto is back starting October 13! You’re going to want to set that Notify, especially since the West Village has been collectively holding its breath until it can order that chicken again.

Week of October 4

The Restaurant Rec

Shukette, because Ayesha Nurdjaja has bottled lighting twice. With her bold and incredibly fun sequel to Shuka, the chef-owner is cooking out of an open kitchen where house-baked breads (do get the za’atar-topped lafa), dips (always order the hummus), and charcoal-grilled meats (the grilled lamb skewers!) take center stage. Simply put: You’re going to want that counter seating, right over here. And if you’d like to get to know Nurdjaja before making that that Resy, we have you covered.

 

The Drink Proposal

The Sinclaire cocktail at Crown Shy. A delightful mixture of vodka, rose, pear, lemon, cardamom, and yogurt, best sipped at the bar with a plate of white bean hummus layered with ‘nduja. Perhaps before you head up for another drink, and the view, at Overstory?

 

The Event Invite

mochiko chicken pop-up party, courtesy of Nowon and Hawaii’s very own Tin Roof Maui. The playful Korean restaurant is welcoming chef Sheldon Simeon this Wednesday, Oct. 6, and though Resy’s are sold out (set that Notify!), there will be limited walk-in and bar seats available (read: show up on the earlier side, before 6 p.m.).

 

The Weekend Pairing

Brunch and a gallery show, or a perfect afternoon in Noho.

Start at Jolene, Gabriel Stulman’s New York ode to Paris’ Café de Flore, where we’re eyeing the schmaltzy potato galette topped with trout roe on the newly debuted brunch menu. Then head to Bowery and visit The Hole NYC, a contemporary art gallery, where you’ll want to catch the last of their early Falls shows.

 

From The Tipline

This just in: Compère Lapin is coming to New York! The acclaimed Caribbean-inspired NOLA destination from James Beard award-winning chef-owner Nina Compton is popping up at the Intersect by Lexus space starting October 23, and Resys are already out. Get booking!

Week of September 27

The Restaurant Rec

LittleMad, because this modern Korean kitchen is one to watch: Chef-owner Sol Han has built a deeply personal menu where Korean nostalgia, French technique, and a dash of decadence mingle. Here are four dishes you really need to order whenever you make that Resy. Over here.

 

The Drink Proposal

The Papa’s Toque cocktail at Bar Beau, a smoky concoction of aged Cachaca, brandy, smoked cedar, black garlic, and lime. A perfect drink to nurse as summer turns into fall, and best sipped at Beau’s niftily hidden bar in the back. 

 

The Event Invite

An immersive deep dive into Vietnam — that’s the best way to describe Bolero’s new Supper Club. Every third Wednesday of the month, Bolero chef-owner Matt Le-Khac will take supper club members through a different multi-course menu exploring Vietnam’s rich culinary history. Sign up here and while you’re at it, read about how New York has some of the best Vietnamese food in America.  

 

The Splurge

Have a splurge-worthy reason to dine out and don’t know where to go? New York’s got some incredible and affordable tasting menus, and we’ve got a guide to the best of them. For all upcoming birthdays, anniversaries, and celebrations, right this way.

 

The Weekend Pairing

Coming to Domino Park Oct. 1 to 3: Resy’s very own Pop-Up Diner in which pasta favorite Rezdôra will take a stab at greasy spoon classics. Think pancakes in the style of tiramisu, or tortelli in the vein of pastrami on rye, treats and soft serve included. Get your tickets pronto.

 

From The Tipline

This just in: Una Pizza Napoletana is coming back in October! The lauded pizzeria slinging Neapolitan pies is making its return, so add it to your Hit List to get notified as soon as reservations drop. Here’s what to expect. (Renovations! Pop ups! A secret project!)
