With a simple Italian menu, Matt Kliegman and Carlos Quirate run the Old Rose in the West Village. The classic black and white décor brings a flair to the spot, which serves between pizza and burrata at dinner, salad and sandwiches at lunch and a special menu for late at night! For drinks, you can choose between beer, cocktail or wine.

In the best speakeasy style, the bar “hides” at The Aviary NYC, located on the 35th floor of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. There are only 44 seats in an old school concept decor. It has a special collection of drinks, such as a Hector Romain Cognac 1835, and an eclectic menu ranging from Vegetable Crudités to Prime Ribeye Tartare.

Opened in October 2017, the Lobster Club entered our list almost immediately.

The dishes and sushi are made by the Michelin-starred chef Tasuku Murakami.

With a West Coast vibe, the Soho spot is open all day and offers a simple, seasonal menu in a setting reminiscent of Los Angeles in the 1960s. The West-Bourne also has a “return” system that, through a partnership with the Robin Hood Foundation, benefits The Door, an organization that supports professional training.
