When it comes to different restaurants to try in New York, you have to prioritize. If you are visiting, then there are too many options. Even if you live here, there are an endless number of options, so it helps to make a list. The following restaurants are currently at the top of my list.
Marea is chef Michael White’s newest restaurant, located right along central park. It is Italian cuisine with a focus on seafood. This bone marrow and octopus fussilli has gotten rave reviews.
Daniel – Chef Daniel Boulud’s masterpiece was recently named the #8 restaurant in the world on the San Pellegrino Worlds Best Restaurant list. Daniel supposedly serves the best French food in all of New York, and I cannot wait for an excuse to try it.
Momofuku Ko – David Chang’s 12 seater is one of the hardest reservations to get in New York, due to their tough online reservation policy. You have to choose your reservation a week in advance. Reservation lines open at 10am every morning, and even if you submit your request at 10am on the dot, chances are they will already be booked up for the day.
WD-50 – Wylie Dufrenes is well known as the creator of the molecular gastronomy eating revolution. If you do not know what molecular gastronomy is, then you must google “wd 50” and check out some of the images that come up.
While I have been for lunch, I have yet to experience what many are calling the best brunch in the city. Co. Pizza in Chelsea. This spot has been known as one of the best Neapolitan pies the city currently has to offer, and I look forward to trying it.
Ok fine, I have not yet been to Shake Shack. I know, I know, how can I call myself I New Yorker. As bad as I want to try that burger I don’t think any burger is worth waiting on a 45 minute line for.
On the cheaper side of things, a true Panini restaurant called Salume has recently opened in Soho that supposedly will teach Americans a thing or two about what an Italian Panini really is.
