    French

    mixed feelings about this place. best for brunch and lunch, think i, where it can be very good. reasonable prices for the area. less a fan of the spot at night.

  • The Raines Law Room

    2

    Speakeasy

    unmarked door, find doorbell. windowless, living room décor. best for duos & quartets. reservations suggested. best after work, avoid weekends. summer garden.

  • Rubin Museum of Art

    3

    Art Museum

    semi-hidden gem on the west side - great for disappearing for a few hours to absorb arts from the himalayan regions, as well as greater asia. there's a café.

  • Mary's Fish Camp

    4

    Seafood

    if it's late and you want the kind of unfussy place that serves fried fish, stews, chowders, lobster & occasionally oysters, then here you are! no reservations.

  • Naka Naka

    5

    Sushi

    very much a mom and dad operation - not fancy at all, nor inexpensive but quite good. it's very quiet, so not the place to go if you want to sing and shout!

  • Intelligentsia Coffee

    6

    Coffee Shop

    i mention this spot only because of its location: hidden inside the highline hotel during the winter but outside out front in a food cart during summer/spring.

  • Txikito

    7

    Tapas

    tapas. it's on my list of places to try, and received rave reviews from friends over the last year, but is it still good? now, it can be on your list too.

  • Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT)

    8

    Museum

    it's great to check in often with this little museum in the basement at FIT. rotating shows with very specific insights into NYC's role in fashion.

    Lebanese

    i've frequently been delighted by the lebanese meals we've had here. setting is formal though relaxed. meals are served family-style, so it's great for groups.

  • Don's Bogam Korean BBQ & Wine

    10

    Korean

    amongst korean friends, we argue which k-town spot is best. new wonjo is frequently mentioned, as is hangawi for vegetarians. i choose DB for the BBQ and décor.

  • Szechuan Gourmet

    11

    Chinese

    rarely is there much of an atmosphere but the hearty, banquet food is a lovely assault on the senses: spicy cumin lamb, mapo tofu, chili cucumber salad. solid.

  • Bar Centrale

    12

    American

    like angel's share, a bit of a hidden spot behind unmarked door (up the front steps), though you need reservations here almost every time. they hate crowds.

  • The Morgan Library & Museum

    13

    Museum

    you'll eventually get around to going here. opened 1906. interesting weekly events, many urbanism related. main attraction is the multi-tiered library itself.

  • Dover Street Market

    14

    Boutique

    a london transplant, it's a series of design shops distributed across seven floors. some more pop-up than others. fashion, housewares, jewelry, etc.

  • Kalustyan's

    15

    Gourmet

    one of my favorite shops for spices, herbs, teas, whole grains and dried beans in manhattan. fresh produce as well. delicatessen / restaurant upstairs.
