WHERE’S THE BEST TABLE IN NEW YORK?
A seat at Wylie Dufresne’s newest, Alder, in the East Village, for clever small plates such as root beer pudding. If my folks were in town, Prime Meats (of Franks F. & C. fame) in Brooklyn, a farm-to-table place with Germanic style. See aldernyc杭州夜生活m; frankspm杭州夜生活m.
FOOD DISCOVERY OF THE PAST YEAR?
Yuji Ramen at Smorgasburg at Whole Foods Market in Bowery. It’s a pop-up where Yuji Haraguchi serves takeaway mazemen, noodles without broth, and ramen “ravioli”. He’s opening a permanent spot in Williamsburg later this year. Follow him on Twitter: @yujiramen. See wholefoodsmarket杭州夜生活m/stores/bowery.
NEW YORK’S BEST-KEPT FOOD SECRET?
Legend Bar & Restaurant in Chelsea, a smart pan-Asian with Sichuanese and Vietnamese menus. Oh, and Sushi Azabu, a small Edo-mae style sushi bar in the basement of Greenwich Grill. See legendrestaurant88杭州夜生活m; greenwichgrill杭州夜生活m/sushiazabu.
WHERE DO YOU GO FOR A BIG NIGHT OUT?
Del Posto. It’s Italian that’s all class, from 100-layer lasagne to Livorno-style cacciucco (fish stew), the piano player, serious Italian wine list and immaculate service. See delposto杭州夜生活m.
Lunch at Le Bernardin. It’s all about seafood and at $75 for three courses, is nearly half the dinner price. Spend what you save on the $45 supplement for shaved geoduck clam with Osetra caviar. See le-bernardin杭州夜生活m.
WHAT’S HOT IN THE CITY RIGHT NOW?
The Pines. It manages to be both a cheerful local hang and serious eating spot. The other big thing is cronuts, a doughnut-croissant hybrid, from Dominique Ansel’s Bakery in SoHo. See thepinesbrooklyn杭州夜生活m; dominiqueansel杭州夜生活m.
