What are your favorite, new must eats in New York City?

I'm heading to NYC later this month for a week, my first time back in a couple years and looking to hit up as many cool new restaurants, food trucks, and craft cocktail bars, spending most of the trip in Midtown. Also taking recommendations for cool new hotels.

    My favorite, best new restaurants in the last year:

    - Cosme (fine dining Mexican from Enrique Olvera who is basically the most famous fine dining chef in Mexico City)

    - Russ & Daughters (same owners as the original Russ and Daughters store)

    - Rebelle With a Gloss (brand spanking new from the owners of Pearl and Ash - amazing wine selection. Chef used to cook at Spring in Paris - 3 star Michelin)

    - Santina (from Rich Torrisi and Mario Carbone - a 1960s Italian coastal themed restaurant in the meatpacking)

    - Marta (second it - also because the champagne lost is very affordable with many bottles around 60-80)

    - Sushi Nakazawa - best sushi omakase from the guy in Jiro Dreams of Sushi

    - Mu Ramen - ex Per Se chef turned ramen master. Way off the beaten path in Long Island city.

    - Dirty French - french Morraccan super fun delicious food amazing cocktails

    So many more but those are my faves of late.

    Cocktails

    - The The NoMad Bar (inside the nomad hotel - best cocktails, won a james beard for it. The nomad bar - not the elephant bar - also serves chicken pot pie with truffle and foie and large format cocktails

    - Dear Irving (by the Raines Law Room guys)

    - Maison Premiere - go for oyster happy hour weekends 4-7 pm for dollar oysters and great drinks

    - ZZ's Clam Bar - expensive drinks at 20 a pop but inventive and fun. Drinks served in a ceramic Buddha, gold pineapple or fresh pepper

    - would skip: Dead Drop, Pouring Ribbons which are both newer cocktail spots but miss the mark with balance

    - would revisit: Apothéke, Death + Company, The Dead Rabbit

    Hope that helps!!

    Hi Spencer- A few of my favorite places in NYC over the past year have been John Dory Oyster Bar and Jacob's Pickles. John Dory is part of the Ace Hotel and offers a nice selection of sustainable seafood and great drinks. Jacob's Pickles bills themselves as "Southern Food with a Twist", I had a fried chicken sandwich on a biscuit and it was knockout!

    If you love oysters, I suggest the Grand Central Oyster Bar at the Central Station or the Mermaid Oyster Bar at the Greenwich Village, ideal place before going to the Blue Note for a nice Jazz evening.

    Ah tough question, since the NYC restaurant scene is always changing!

    Food Trucks: Not as many Food Trucks lately, but I would check out food markets and food halls. The L train has been down on weekends to Smorgasburg, but if you take the 7 train from midtown to LIC Flea & Food there are a lot of vendors unique to the area like Malaysian curry from Curry Station or scallion pancake rolls from The Bao Shoppe. My favorite food court is Gotham West Market where you can enjoy everything from a cup of Blue Bottle Coffee or slurp a bowl of noodles from Ivan Ramen or check out City Kitchen or Brookfield Place for a similar experience.

    New Restaurants/Cocktails: Some may not actually be new, but new to me! There has been buzz around Upland, Bobby Flay's Gato, drinks at Piora, Angel's Share, Employees Only, learn how to make a cocktail at The Wren, Kingside has tasty cocktails and an unforgettable caramel pudding (still on my mind), American cuisine at Harding's and I would sport an egg white mustache for the Harding's Sour any day! Bar Pitti for a classic Italian meal or Basta Pasta for a twist on Italian, like sea urchin pasta!

    I never had the opportunity to stay in a hotel in NYC, but I have had many brunches at Yotel New York and the hotel has a cool, futuristic vibe.

    Everything bagel with nova lox, served open faced at EssaBagel, crack pie from Momofuku Milk Bar, soppressata pizza at Motorino, the real deal macarons at Ladurée, chocolates at Leonidas Belgian Chocolates and/or La Maison Du Chocolat, and a hot hand cut pastrami sandwich, ordered at the counter NOT by waiter service (rookie mistake) at Katz's Delicatessen. That ought to keep you full for a while.

    I got this.

    C & C Prosperity Dumpling - you're welcome.

    Don't bother with Momofuku Noodle Bar (crazy how fast this place fills up), I thought it was over-hyped and has nothing on Tatsu Ramen in LA. Momofuku Milk Bar, worth a cookie and the cereal ice cream. I still prefer Big Gay Ice Cream Shop.

    The Spotted Pig for their burger and totally East Village vibe. The Spotted Pigimage from blog.ctnews.comThe Pod 39 rooftop bar has my interest, not sure if it will be open when you go, but I mean:

    Pod 39image from urbandaddy.comNum Pang Sandwich Shop - SO GOOD.

    Also, The NoMad Hotel and it's library (they serve cocktails!) has always been on my list...The NoMad Hotel

    Hi Spencer! Let me recommend a nice bar: The Irish Pub, excellent ambience, outstanding food and perfect location. Shake Shack is very cool and the best option of food trucks! A very nice Italian restaurant that I recommend is Maison and an excellent choice for a delicious breakfast is Le Pain Quotidien.

    Hope this helps! Enjoy your visit to my favorite city in the world!
