Restaurants

  • Zaitzeff

    Zaitzeff

    Taking the plebian diner burger as its prototype, Zaitzeff makes patchwork upgrades, and doubles the price. It might just be worth it. The quarter-pound sirloin burger comes deposited on a sweeter, more finely textured bun heaped with sautéed... More on Zaitzeff »

  • The Barrel

    The Barrel

    This strange take on pan-European "tapas" comes from the owners of Japanese bakery Panya next door. The menu lists burgers, salads, sandwiches, and an array of small-ish plates. The food is cooked relatively skillfully, but it seems off-kilter... More on The Barrel »

  • La Morada

    La Morada

    The luscious display of fruits and vegetables outside will lure you into this combo grocery and eatery, oddly decorated in various shapes of purple (maybe not so odd when you consider the name). The chalkboard specials listed out front are the... More on La Morada »

  • Croxley Ales

    Croxley Ales

  • The Brooklyneer

    The Brooklyneer

    Manhattanites no longer have to cross a bridge to get their fix of Salvatore ricotta, Acme smoked fish, and Mama O's kimchi. Instead, they can head to the Brooklyneer, a new West Village bar and small plates restaurant celebrating the best of the... More on The Brooklyneer »

  • Bowery Electric

    Bowery Electric

    Located just down the block from the legendary, defunct CBGBs, the Bowery Electric is a rock-centric, workhorse music venue with a robust concert calendar on the lower tip of the East Village. The bar plays at its famous ex-neighbor's punky... More on Bowery Electric »

  • Sapphire

    Sapphire

    Everyone from Jersey folk to Village kids to uptown city kids get down and dirty on the dim Sapphire dance floor. It's not as trendy at the Meatpacking clubs, not as aggressive as the midtown ones-and isn't that a good thing? More on Sapphire »

  • Pavilion Theatre

    Pavilion Theatre

    I always wondered where parents hid the Slope's young adults (did they just roll tykes downhill when they started to outgrow the baby carriages?) until hitting the Park Slope Pavilion on a Friday night. Maybe it's just me, but the adolescent... More on Pavilion Theatre »

    • Jonah Miller began mapping out plans for a restaurant when he was still a teenager. "Broadly speaking, I grew up in the city, and I knew from a very young age what I wanted to do," he says. "I started working in restaurants at 14." Twelve years later, the chef -- who has spent time behind the burners at Chanterelle, Gramercy Tavern, and Savoy -- is making good on that goal. Huertas (107 First Avenue), a pintxos bar and restaurant that channels northern Spain, will make its official debut on Tuesday.Miller's inspiration comes from a variety... More on Huertas »

    • When one restaurant's doors close, another restaurant's doors open in fast-paced New York City, and every Friday we'll fill you in on what opened up around town this week. This week: a soba restaurant above a sushi mainstay, a grilled cheese joint in Bushwick, and a Paris wine bar finds a home stateside. Daruma-Ya, 428 Greenwich Street, 212-274-0428 The restaurant above Sushi Azabu is now Daruma-Ya, a Japanese izakaya and soba house. We talked to soba master Shuichi Kotani, earlier this week, who told us, "Buckwheat is very hard. Ramen is... More on Daruma-Ya »
