Hottest Newcomers

We know it’s hard to keep up with the newest restaurants on New York’s dining scene and even harder to figure out which spots are worthwhile, so we  scouted out the best of the bunch.  We at Restaurant Girl volunteer our tastebuds so you dont have to waste a meal (or your money, for that matter!) on a mediocre restaurant that’s hot simply because it’s new.  Here’s our favorite Hottest Newcomers in NYC right now…

198 E 11th Street
, New York 10003
(212) 228-3585
Cuisine:

There’s no doubt that Danny Meyer has the magic touch. Seemingly every concept he explores turns not only to gold, but also platinum, from fine dining enterprises (his flagship Union Square Café), to museum-based destinations (The Modern, Untitled) to fast food burgers (Shake Shack).  He’s...

(212) 986-2800
Cuisine:

There’s no shortage of options in NYC, for where to plunk down hundreds of dollars for a Japanese feast.  And yet, the newly-opened Mifune may just outclass them all, being that it’s helmed by a cadre of Michelin star-wielding chefs; Hiroke Yoshitake (of Sola in Paris, which scored a single...

Jean-Georges Vongerichten is making moves once again, and this time, it’s not inside ABC Carpet & Home.  The chef icon is actually letting his hair down on the Lower East Side at Public —  a hip hotel from Studio 54 founder, Ian Schrager. Continuing the thread started at his most...

Sen Sakana Settles Down in Midtown

Sen Sakana Settles Down in Midtown
28 W 44th St
, New York 10036
(212) 221-9561
Cuisine:

Restaurants rarely open exactly when they intend to, thanks to the reliably red tape-ridden, drawn-out processes of wrangling permits and overseeing construction (not to mention somehow retaining sought-after staff throughout). But Sen Sakana really takes the cake when it comes to a delayed debut,...

Empire Stores is New York’s Hottest New Pseudo Food Hall
53-83 Water Street
, New York 11201
(718) 858-8555

While not exactly a food court, per se, Empire Stores presents an impressive gathering of unique culinary concepts, in one of the city’s most breathtaking locations.  Think a 19th century warehouse complete with original architecture (brick masonry façade, 14-foot ceilings, schist stone...

107 N 12th Street
, New York 11249
(718) 215-8770
Cuisine:

Wylie Dufresne was one of New York’s very first star chefs, having essentially introduced the city to the concept of molecular gastronomy.  Yet while he made his name on pickled beef tongue with fried mayonnaise, and deconstructed eggs benedict at the pioneering wd-50 (followed by rye and...

Long Island Eats Meet Manhattan Chic at Out East

Long Island Eats Meet Manhattan Chic at Out East
509 E 6th St.
, New York 10009
(212) 509-5096
Cuisine:

Seafood is an awfully easy sell during spring and summer; especially to city-enslaved New Yorkers, desperate for a weekend respite in the Hamptons.  So although it was originally slated for January, the delay could well prove a boon to Out East — located, not in posh Montauk — but on...

, New York 10036
212-730-8900
Cuisine:

Jose Garces has some of the Food Network visibility of Guy Fieri (having completed a stint as one of America’s own Iron Chefs), yet has quietly assembled a dynasty in the rising culinary city of Philadelphia — making him a respected entity amongst the gastronomic elite.  So can he translate...
