    Antler Beer and Wine Dispensary

    123 Allen St.

    Lower East Side

    Cuisine: Bar, Eclectic, Wine Bar


    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. READ REVIEW


    Distilled NY

    211 West Broadway


    Cuisine: New American


    Just as the public house was historically an anchor of the community in both Europe and North America–a place where everyone could stop by and grab a drink or a bite—Distilled NY brings an updated version of this experience to Tribeca. READ REVIEW


    El Colmado

    Gotham West Market, 600 11th Ave.

    Cuisine: Spanish


    With snappy service and superb Spanish-style tapas, this bustling counter is the kind of place where one can pop in and out of for lunch or make a night of it at dinnertime. READ REVIEW


    Hill Country

    30 W. 26th St.


    Cuisine: Barbeque

    The Vanderbilt

    570 Vanderbilt Ave.

    Prospect Heights

    Cuisine: New American


    The New York Times calls it “big, open, a far larger space than Brooklynites are used to in restaurants, and it vibes bar more than restaurant. Eat some house-smoked kielbasa with simmered greens, though, and discover it’s a bar with good food.” READ REVIEW



    1011 Manhattan Ave.


    Cuisine: Sandwich, Wine Bar


    Troost is a refreshingly low-key shotgun café and bistro with a carefully careless look and comfortably worn-in feel that serves espressos and bagels at the bar, hosts Bingo on Wednesday nights, and offers a happy hour every weekday as well as all weekend long. READ REVIEW
