The November Hit List: Semma, Kaiseki Room by Yamada, Sofreh Cafe, and More

Is it already November? Even if it feels like the days are getting shorter and the months keep passing by more quickly, one silver lining is that — despite everything — there’s no shortage of incredible restaurants in the city, both new and maybe not-so-new. There’s Semma, the latest restaurant from the same team behind Dhamaka and Adda. In Williamsburg, there’s Mexico City-inspired Aldama, a new hit in the making. There’s also a beloved trattoria in Park Slope that’s finally taking reservations, and a new spot for excellent kaiseki omakase. All this and more in the November Hit List.
