40 "Fine Dining" restaurants in New York.
If you’re like us, and/or any New Yorker that spends some of their free time and all of their money at restaurants, then you probably have this magical farm outside of town on your hit list. A trip...
Chef’s Table At Brooklyn Fare in Hell’s Kitchen serves a tasting menu that’s unlike anything else you’ll eat in NYC.
Carbone is red sauce Italian restaurant theater, and it’s a show you shouldn’t miss. This is one of New York City’s absolute best restaurants.
Blanca is a 12-seat tasting-menu restaurant hidden in a room behind Roberta’s. And it’s incredible.
Gramercy Tavern is an incredible restaurant. But you already know that. The bar is the move you want to make here, and you want to make it often.
The Grill is the revamp of the legendary Four Seasons restaurant, run by the people behind Carbone. It’s very similar, very expensive, and worth it.
Union Square Cafe is a classic New York City restaurant having its second life in a new space. The good news? It’s still as good as ever.
Fancy though it may be, Eleven Madison Park is surprisingly lively. But make no mistake, this is fine dining at its most serious.
Daniel is a New York City fine dining classic. Save it for a special occasion and eat in the salon, where things are a bit more laid back.
Del Posto is an excellent special occasion restaurant, located in a big space in Chelsea. Think of it as a more upscale Babbo, or Daniel with pasta.
I Sodi is a tiny restaurant that serves the best Italian food in the West Village.
Marea is about as good as upscale eating gets in Midtown, and there’s a lot of that around. Don’t miss the bone marrow and octopus fusilli.
A meal at Flora Bar, in the basement of the Met Breuer on the Upper East Side, makes you feel like you’re getting away with something.
Cosme is an upscale Mexican restaurant in Flatiron that’s much more approachable than it appears to be.
For a place where dinner costs $255, Momofuku Ko is surprisingly relaxed. The tasting menu changes often, but expect excellent food.
