The NoMad

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

In the golden age of robber baron New York—we’re talking turn of the last century—there were hotel restaurants like the NoMad all across the city, their grand dining rooms buzzing with beau monde patrons morning till night. The recent return of the all-day hotel clubhouse began with hip

Keens Steakhouse

  • Price band: 4/4
  • Critics choice

The ceiling and walls are hung with pipes, some from such long-ago Keens regulars as Babe Ruth, J.P. Morgan and Teddy Roosevelt. Even in these nonsmoking days, you can catch a whiff of the restaurant’s 120-plus years of history. Beveled-glass doors, two working fireplaces and a forest’s worth

élan

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 2/4

“I just got chills, up and down my leg,” a fellow diner blurted out immediately after one bite of David Waltuck’s überbuttery foie gras ($4), cheekily served lollipop-style at the chef’s comeback restaurant, élan. Those chills aren’t hyperbole—the perfect spheres of smooth liver,

Daniel

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

Even in the worst of times, a world-class city needs restaurants offering the escape of over-the-top coddling and luxurious food, with a star chef who's not just on the awning but in the kitchen and dining room, too-—in short, a place like Daniel. The most classically opulent of the city's

Hill Country

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

The guys behind Hill Country, a paean to the beefcentric barbecue outside Austin, are about as Texan as Bloomberg in a Stetson. The pit master is Queens-native Robbie Richter, a backyard griller turned barbecue competition junkie. Owner Marc Glosserman'sTexas roots are borrowed from his

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

The John Dory Oyster Bar

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

April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman’s original Meatpacking District John Dory was an ambitious, pricey endeavor, but its reincarnation in the Ace Hotel is an understated knockout. Tall stools face a raw bar stocked with a rotating mix of East and West Coast oysters, all expertly handled and

Betony

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 2/4

This hulking, unforgiving stretch of midtown seldom breeds restaurants of heart and finesse, but like a sprout pushing out of a sidewalk crack, here grows Betony. In its former life, the soaring, two-tiered space housed Brasserie Pushkin, an ode to opulence, brimming with caviar and poor taste.
