When it comes to dining, NYC continues to wow. Case in point: 4 Charles Prime Rib’s delicious and insta-famous burger, Ichimura’s front row omakase experience, and Tim Ho Wan’s international dim sum expansion. Your Hit List is up; read all about it:
1/4 Charles Prime Rib
Because this speakeasy of a steakhouse is to die for from start to finish. Try the off-menu French dip, the infamous burger and the sky-high lemon meringue pie, and you’ll be booking your second visit before you’ve even finished the first. // West Village. Book now at 4 Charles Prime Rib.
Because Chef Eiji Ichimura – aka the “the sushi astronaut”– boasts a bonafide sushi show at his 6pm and 9pm omakase seatings. Take a seat in the 10-person dining room and experience the magic in real life. // Tribeca. Book now at Ichimura.
Because look at all those pretty tiles. And uni pasta. And steak tartare. And everything else. // Financial District. (212) 375-0010.
Because contemporary cuisine is reimagined here with a Latin twist. Try the Cuban lasagna, which features Adobo pulled pork, mixed cheeses, arroz Morro, plantains and chicharron for dinner, and the Peking duck chilaquiles for brunch. // West Village. Book now at Tavo.
Because the neighborhood hideaway that’s bustling, warm and inviting come dinnertime is now open for brunch. Recreate the fun during the day at Tribeca’s Yves. // Tribeca. Book now at Yves.
Because Chef Dan Kluger is offering farm-to-table dishes in the most delicious way. Among the highlights? Brussels sprout pizza (complete with garlic, jalapeños and aged cheddar!) and grilled broccoli with orange, kohlrabi and pistachio-mint dressing. Save room for dessert– “The Blizzard” does not disappoint. // Greenwich Village. Book now at Loring Place.
7/Union Square Cafe
It’s hard to argue with the quality and service at Danny Meyer’s USQ crown jewel. Don’t skimp on the fresh-made bread or pumpkin bread pudding for dessert. Craving seconds? The restaurant’s takeaway spot, Daily Provisions, is opening next door, selling coffee, bread and small bites to go. // Union Square. Book now at Union Square Cafe. Daily Provisions opens 2/3.
Because this Moscow transplant has opened its first international location next to Bryant Park. With items like roasted bone marrow with clam chimichurri, and seared duck breast with garlic pine nut emulsion, the name doesn’t do justice to the goodness that’s inside. // Midtown West. (212) 221-2510.
9/Tim Ho Wan
Because the U.S. outpost of Hong Kong’s Michelin-starred dim sum joint has earned quite a following. The BBQ pork bun, shrimp rice-noodle rolls and the price point all deserve a collective thumbs up. // East Village. (212) 228-2800.
10/White Gold Butchers
Because Chef April Bloomfield’s chopped cheese is a phenomenon worthy of its buzz. And thanks to a newly-minted class series – featuring sausage making and chicken butchering – culinary wizardry skills can be yours, too. // West Village. Walk-ins only.
