As we hurtle toward the beginning of the holiday season and the end of the year — and given everything that’s happening around us these days — there’s truly something to be said for the magic of dining out. Restaurants can be a balm in tough times — a refuge from a tough, long day. They are places for celebrations, for meeting new friends, for seeing familiar faces, and for making memories.
Maybe those memories will involve one last tasting menu over at Oxalis in Crown Heights, before they close at the end of the year. Or sharing a massive platter of mansaf with friends at the newest location of Ayat in Manhattan. Or perhaps it’ll be brunch at Harlem’s Tsion Café, with shakshuka and sambusas aplenty. Wherever you decide to dine out, we hope you’ll leave your meal feeling full, and restored. This is your Resy Hit List for November.
