In the city that never sleeps, there is not a smidgen of doubt that restaurants in New York City must not only be posh but stand out among the rest. While some businesses can get away with serving simple comfort dishes because they have been in the city forever, others must strive to be different each day. With cocktail menus that never stop updating to mouthwatering, eclectic cuisine tourists and locals would regret not trying, the following restaurants reign supreme when it comes to culinary arts and declare that “yum” is an understatement.
Do not let the relaxed atmosphere of Ferris fool you; they are very much a force to be reckoned with in the city. Aside from slinging craft cocktails, the establishment is serving up dishes that you might ponder trying, but be happy you did when you make the leap. With a menu containing chips and dips made with chicharrones and chicken liver mousse, squid served with blood oranges, and duck on the crown, there is no doubt that Ferris will continue to remain relevant in the NYC food scene.
No, this is not a recording studio. Legacy Records is an upscale establishment boasting of their wine selection, dessert menu, and unforgettable dinner options. Razor clams served with saffron, spaghetti with cuttlefish and ink, and even grilled pigeon are a few options that will have you hankering for more. Zany dessert options, including rhubarb poached in elderflower, will ensure that your morning doughnut will no longer be so delicious.
Located in the Chelsea Market, you will not just walk by this restaurant. Essentially paying homage to the melting pot that is the United States, this pita-pumping establishment offers a wide variety of pita pockets, including lobster roll, steak and cheese, and even cheeseburger.
