The June Hit List: Esmé, Bar Roma, Split-Rail, and More


While it’s always a good idea to be eating at women-owned spots, let this month’s Women of Food celebration serve as an opportunity to double down and discover new places that have a woman at the helm.

There’s Katrina Bravo’s Esmé, which has a new menu inspired by femininity and the female form; Julia Zhu’s Bar Roma for the finest handmade pasta; and Jennifer Jones’ cherished Dos Urban Cantina, where the tamales and enchiladas are bountiful. This is your June Hit List.
