  • A Casa Fox $$

    Cuisine: Latin American, Tapas

    Neighborhood: Lower East Side

    173 Orchard St. New York, NY 10002   212-253-1900

    www.acasafoods.com/restaurant.html

    A young, Latin-loving crowd magically materializes when the clock strikes eight to sample Melissa Fox's equally Latin-loving menu.

  • ABC Kitchen + Cocina $$$

    Cuisine: American, Latin American, New American

    Neighborhood: Union Square, Union Square

    ABC Kitchen, 35 E. 18th St. New York, NY 10003   212-475-5829

    ABC Cocina, 38 E. 19th St. New York, NY 10003   212-475-5829

    www.abckitchennyc.com

    Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s ABC Kitchen and ABC Cocina share the same distinctive, whimsical-meets-chic aesthetic, seasonal market inspiration, and thoughtful, just-a-bit quirky ethos.

  • Aburiya Kinnosuke $$$

    Cuisine: Japanese, Sushi

    Neighborhood: Midtown East

    213 E. 45th St. New York, NY 10017   212-867-5454

    www.aburiyakinnosuke.com

    Aburiya Kinnosuke's menu is all about time and place. Carefully crafted like a (good) story arc—from cold to hot, and from fresh and light to rich and punchy—the dishes carry with them a sense of adventure.

  • Almond $$

    Cuisine: Italian, New American

    Neighborhood: Flatiron

    12 E. 22nd St. New York, NY 10010   212-228-7557

    www.almondnyc.com

    Almond joy: Pressed-tin ceilings and mirrors that reflect the soft glow of candle light speak of favorite Paris bistros, a motif strongly supported by a menu.

  • Antler Beer and Wine Dispensary $

    Cuisine: Bar, Eclectic, Wine Bar

    Neighborhood: Lower East Side

    123 Allen St. New York, NY 10002   212-432-5000

    www.antlerdispensary.com

    Antler is a throwback to a vanishing era when downtown bars doubled as informal living rooms—and to accompany the imbibing, New Mexico native Cecelia Bye has curated a menu of kicked-up small plates.

  • Antonucci Café $$$

    Cuisine: Italian

    Neighborhood: Upper East Side

    170 E. 81st St. New York, NY 10028   212-570-5100

    www.antonuccicafe.com

    On an impossibly picturesque street on the UES sits Antonucci Café, a gem that wouldn't be out of place on the streets of Milan. Eclectic artwork graces the walls while faucet handles come straight from Italy. White jacketed waiters serve up classically simple Italian fare featuring homemade pastas. If the outdoor dining gods allow it, snag a street-side table and drink it all in.

  • Aquavit $$$$

    Cuisine: Scandinavian

    Neighborhood: Midtown East

    65 E. 55th St. New York, NY 10022   212-307-7311

    www.aquavit.org

    Aquavit is a vetted Midtown kitchen that since 1987 has plated up innovative Scandinavian food and is not afraid to evolve.

  • Ardesia $$

    Cuisine: New American, Wine Bar

    Neighborhood: Hell's Kitchen

    510 W. 52nd St. New York, NY 10019   212-247-9191

    www.ardesia-ny.com

    Ardesia, a lively wine bar on the fringe of the theater district, must have been designed with New York night owls in mind. The house-cured, house-smoked pastrami sandwich or the bánh mì make a nice little meal, especially if you kick it off with some artichoke-and-crab dip. Nobody’s in a rush here.

  • Aunt Jake's $$

    Cuisine: Italian

    Neighborhood: Little Italy

    151 Mulberry St. New YorK, NY 10013   646-858-0470

    www.auntjakesnyc.com

    A far cry from the the multitude of lookalikes on Mulberry Street, Aunt Jake’s demonstrates what a modern Italian-American eatery can be.

  • Aurora SoHo $$$

    Cuisine: Italian

    Neighborhood: South Village

    510 Broome St. New York, NY 10013   212-334-9020

    www.auroraristorante.com/sohohome.html

    The three co-owners (one's the chef, another designed the place) who keep this restaurant in perfect yin-yang shape: It’s hopping but not too hopping, with a pure Tuscan farmhouse ambience. Even the waiter plays his role to a tee. “I’m from Verona,” he says, with barely a trace of an accent. “You know, Northern Italy.” Just like Aurora.
