The Hit ListNew York

The May Hit List: Laser Wolf, Kono, Café Spaghetti, and More 


The month of May is when we officially enter summer dining mode, and this year, the options in New York couldn’t be more plentiful — or exciting.

From a thrilling new yakitori restaurant in Chinatown and the return of a favorite barbecue joint in Bed-Stuy to the debut of a new Gramercy cocktail haven and the reinvention of a fresh seafood spot on the Lower East Side, there’s no shortage of incredible things to eat, drink, and enjoy in the city right now. Your May Hit List is here. Time to get dining.
