Fairytail Lounge

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

This Hell's Kitchen watering hole packs a lot of glittery, pseudo-Victorian personality into a small space. Patrons can sip cocktails off the backs of sexy centaur mannequins, or park at the bar while bopping their heads to tunes from various DJs during weekly theme nights.

The Breslin Bar & Dining Room

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Even in a city smitten with large-format feasts—whole hogs, huge steaks, heaps of fried chicken—the Breslin breaks new gluttonous ground. The third project from restaurant savant Ken Friedman and Anglo chef April Bloomfield offers the most opulently fatty food in New York—served in medieval

  1. Ace Hotel, 16 W 29th St, at Broadway

Café Carlyle (in the Carlyle Hotel)

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 4/4

Dinner, drinks and a show in this glittering room can feel like an evening that only an oil sheik could afford, but commit to it: With its airy murals by Marcel Vertes, this elegant spot in the Carlyle Hotel is the epitome of New York class, attracting such top-level singers as Elaine Stritch,

The Cannibal

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

With its deli fridges stocked with ales and lagers, and its aged steaks and whole hams dangling from steel hooks, the Cannibal could double as the set of a new dude-food show on the Cooking Channel. Run by guys and packed with them, the place is so unabashed in its bromance for craft beer and

  1. 113 E 29th St, between Park Ave South and Lexington Aves, 10016
  2. Average small plate: $11. AmEx, MC, V

The Shakespeare

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 2/4

In the past decade, Brit icons like April Bloomfield and Fergus Henderso (of London’s St. John), have transformed English food from punch line into powerhouse cuisine. Jason Hicks and Yves Jadot—the pair behind popular uptown gastropub Jones Wood Foundry—do their own enlightened version at

Beer Authority

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 1/4

The craft-beer movement has been in expansion mode recently, colonizing far-flung neighborhoods like Washington Heights (Buddha Beer Bar), Long Island City (Alewife Queens) and Bed-Stuy (Brooklyn Tap House). What’s been glaringly missing from the takeover, however, has been a foothold in the

The Penrose

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 1/4
  • Critics choice

The Upper East Side has its share of low-key gems (Torishin) and crown-jewel restaurants (Daniel), but verifiable hot spots? There are few. The idea of a hobnobbing scene in Manhattan’s stuffiest zip code seemed laughable a few years ago—as likely as an electrodisco party in Greenwich,

  1. 1590 Second Ave, between 82nd and 83rd Sts
  2. Average beer: $6. AmEx, Disc, MC, V

Middle Branch

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 3/4
  • Critics choice

In an age when suspenders and ’staches are cocktail-bar clichés, it’s hard to remember that a bit more than a decade ago, craft cocktails were almost a historical footnote, degraded over the years by sugary premade mixes and the herculean rise of the Appletini. Times have changed: Many casual

ABV

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Last year, Earl’s Beer and Cheese emerged, seemingly from the ether, along the northern edges of the Upper East Side, bringing youthful buzz and craft brews to a ’hood that had long been a wasteland for both. Now, the previously drowsy area has received another boost from the oenocentric ABV,

The Guthrie Inn

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Critics choice

Cocktail enthusiasts haven’t had much use for the 6 train above 42nd Street. The Upper East Side, so rich in greenery and regal townhouses, is comparatively wanting when it comes to nightlife. But the Guthrie Inn—joining Earl’s Beer and Cheese and ABV—is the latest in a series of
