Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s latest opening paired itself with the opening of Ian Schrager’s Public Hotel, a hospitality concept touted “for all.” JGV’s Public Kitchen sits on the ground floor of the impeccably designed hotel, in a 150-seat space offset by a plant-drenched patio. On the menu are dishes like a truffle pizza, rigatoni with basil-pistachio pesto, and smoked short rib with corn and potato salad. Not that a JG restaurant needs the help, but it’s surely sitting pretty inside what is New York’s hottest hotel, and a favorite for the fashion-minded.
This place is perfect for a romantic dinner with friends or that special someone. LI Party Rides Strives to make your Dinner date special and night one of the best. Our driver will arrive on time and make sure you arrive safely.
2-Emily West Village- 35 Downing St New York, NY 10014
Brooklyn restaurateurs Emily and Matt Hyland have opened in the West Village to turn their popular pizza restaurant bi-borough. The new location brings new combinations of New York and New Haven pizza styles, as well as the Detroit-style grandma pies their fans have come to line up for. The digs are slightly bigger in Manhattan, and decorated with art from employees and Clinton Hill regulars. Like Emily Brooklyn, the vibe is fun and familial.
This restaurant is a great place for lunch and dinners. Make sure to call ahead of time to reserve your table. Out staff and Emily West have a package which includes transportation and dinner for a low price. Make sure to call us for your limo or sedan booking.
3 Atla372 Lafayette StNew York, NY 10012
Enrique Olvera brings his familiar Mexican fare to a casual Noho space with his freshly minted Atla. The esteemed chef has brought along Cosme’s Daniela Soto-Innes, who (along with Olvera), wants Atla to be an everyday, neighborhood restaurant, and a place for fans of Olvera’s to enjoy his food at a more moderate price. The duo worked together to create healthy, vegetable-leaning dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that are “lighter” than dishes found at Olvera’s other restaurants. Options like an egg white omelette with zucchini, a mushroom quesadilla, and chia oatmeal grace the breakfast menu (served from 8:30 until 11:30), while lunch and dinner options include quail egg meatballs, steak tartare, and quinoa with pico de gallo. Atla also offers an extensive non-alcoholic drink menu, including cafe con leche, a toasted sesame horchata, and passionfruit juice.
4 Sushi Katsuei- 357 Avenue of the Americas New York, NY 10014
The popular Brooklyn sushi spot crossed the East River in April, bringing very affordable sushi to the West Village. The 10-seat bar and 26-seat dining room is offering three omakase options, all priced under $100. There’s a $57 sushi omakase with nine pieces of nigiri and a toro scallion hand roll; an $87 sashimi and sushi omakase with five kinds of sashimi, eight pieces of nigiri, and a toro scallion hand roll; and a $24 lunch omakase with six pieces of sushi. Drinks here are sake, beer, and sparkling wine.
5 Hà Nội House-
New York, NY 10009
Starr restaurant alums Sara Leveen and Ben Lowell teamed up to open this Vietnamese spot in the East Village. The St. Mark’s Place restaurant offers seating for about 40 at small, scattered tables within the restaurant’s tropical-leaning space. The crux of the menu is pho, a beef noodle soup that originated in small towns southwest of Hanoi. Soup and stew options on the menu include Hanoi-style beef pho ($13), which comes with brisket and rice noodles; clams and congee ($18); and a braised brisket stew with lemongrass ($20). Robert Sietsema notes that the broth at Hanoi House is dark, delicious, and “purely beefy.”
