The Resy Hit List: Where In New York You’ll Want to Eat Right Now


There’s no question we hear more often: Where should I go eat? And while we at Resy know it’s an honor to be the friend who everyone asks for restaurant advice, we also know it’s a complicated task. That’s where the Resy Hit List comes in.

We’ve designed it to be your essential resource for dining in New York City: a monthly updated (and newly expanded!) guide to the restaurants that you won’t want to miss — tonight or any night. 

Five Things In NYC Not to Miss This Month

  • It’s Brunch Time: It’s never not brunch season in New York, but spring is an especially opportune time to engage in one of New Yorkers’ favorite weekend sports. Speaking of which: Family Meal at Blue Hill  just started their first-ever weekend lunch service on Sundays. It’s the same menu-less, family-style service you’ve come to expect from the team, only with three courses for $85 per person. Find more great weekend brunch ideas here.
  • Get Cooking: Over at Harry’s Table by Cipriani, they’ve always got a slate of cooking classes rooted in Italian classics, from ricotta gnocchi and bomboloni to tiramisu and stuffed pastas. Find even more cooking classes on our Events page.
  • Curtains Up: Beginning April 7 and continuing on the first Sunday of the month, Pebble Bar is hosting a Piano Party that involves live sing-alongs of showtunes and pop music, with surprise appearances from Broadway stars in their private top floor. Get your tickets here and find more events on our Events Page.
  • New Openings: Two recent openings you’ll want to keep in your thoughts this month: Penny, the newest restaurant from the same duo behind Claud, serving up ice boxes of fresh seafood and a cooked-to-order whole lobster you won’t soon forget. Read all about Penny here. And check out everything you need to know about Bungalow, new from chef Vikas Khanna and the GupShup team, here. P.S. If you always want to be in the know on the latest openings in New York, we have you covered with New on Resy.
  • Pop-Ups of Note: Two alums from The Four Horsemen — Ed Kaneshiro and Max Baez — are bringing their seafood-forward pop-up, Kamaboko, to Hana Makgeolli, one of our favorite pop-up hosts in the city, for two nights this month: April 4 and 5. Later this month, on April 14, also at Hana Makgeolli, you won’t want to miss a pop-up visit from acclaimed chef Ji Hye Kim of Miss Kim in Ann Arbor, Mich. Find even more pop-ups here.
