2/Ichimura
Because enjoy 22 courses of sublime and masterful preparations at Chef Eiji Ichimura’s 10-seat sushi counter. When in New York, it’s a must. // Tribeca. Book now at Ichimura.

3/Augustine
Because roasted bone marrow with oxtail ragoût at a picturesque FiDi stomping ground. Pro-tip: try the sea urchin spaghettini with king crab. // Financial District. (212) 375-0010.

4/Pig Bleecker
Because there’s no better way to kick off lunch service than with “Grandma Val’s Meatball Hero” (hello, smoked Di Palo’s mozzarella and sesame garlic bread). Feeling nostalgic? Opt for  the smoked mozzarella sticks with Sunday sauce. // Greenwich Village. Book now at Pig Bleecker.

5/Loring Place
Because Chef Dan Kluger’s Brussels sprout, jalapeño, and aged cheddar pizza is a bona fide sensation. So is the cheeseburger. And the monkey bread. // Greenwich Village. Book now at Loring Place.

7/Pinch Chinese
Because Pinch boasts three delicious variations on traditional soup dumplings, and their petite size means you can order all three. // SoHo. Walk-ins only.

8/Tim Ho Wan
Because this classic is the dim sum gold standard. With Sunday lunch lines that wrap around the block, it’s best to arrive early– or with good company. // East Village. (212) 228-2800.

9/Ikinari Steak
Because each meaty portion is sliced to order and served on a sizzling plate. Meat is an obvious must and don’t leave without ordering the garlic fried rice. // East Village. (917) 388-3546.

Bonus/Ivan Ramen
Because this renowned ramen joint is a rite of passage. The ramen is indulgent, warm, and an umami bomb in the best way. // LES. Book now at Ivan Ramen.
