New York's eight most anticipated restaurant openings for fall

Written by

Labor Day may be over, but the official start of fall is still twelve days away. In New York, that autumn arrival means a new crop of hotly anticipated dining destinations set to pop up all over town. From doughnut-burger joints to global powerhouses, meet the new spots everyone will be talking about next season.


Bedford & Co.: Bouncing back from a very public business breakup with partner Sean Largotta, downtown scene-maker John DeLucie (the Lion, Bill’s Food & Drink) goes solo with a 100-seat small-plates restaurant inside the Renwick hotel this November, offering crowd-pleasers like chicken pot pie and truffle macaroni and cheese alongside fire-grilled items, including wood-seared kanpachi and Long Island duck. 118 E 40th St

La Sirena: Taking over the dining operations of the Maritime Hotel, Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich launch this plaza-level trattoria in November, their first standalone restaurant since 2006’s Del Posto. Italian-accented plates will be served across two dining rooms, including duck eggs with almond pesto, beef braciola with broccoli rabe and grilled swordfish Messinese. 88 Ninth Ave

Salvation Burger: If there’s a single dish that has defined April Bloomfield’s career, it’s the burger—her Roquefort-hooded round at the Spotted Pig is one of the best in New York—so it’s not surprising that her October-set Pod 51 project zooms in on house-ground patties tricked out with bespoke toppings, from the cheddar cheese to the potato buns. Beyond beef, find hot dogs, a fried-fish sandwich and the de rigueur veggie burger. 230 E 51st St

PYT NYC: Best put your cardiologist on speed-dial now—glazed-doughnut burgers with chocolate-covered bacon are in your near future. Philadelphia’s gonzo-patty builders are bringing their artery-clogging creations to Noho in October, including a CBGB-inspired cheddar-capped round with bacon on a garlic-bread bun. 334 Bowery

Indian Accent: The New Delhi original helmed by Indian supertoque Manish Mehrotra is currently sitting pretty at No. 77 on S. Pellegrino’s World’s Best list. At this New York branch, set to open at Le Parker Meridien in November, Mehrotra will plate pork ribs with pickled mango, soft-shell crab with Madras gunpowder chutney and Kashmiri morels with Parmesan papadum wafers. 123 W 56th St

Le Coq Rico: The popular Parisian bistro lands in Gotham for its first stateside location, helmed by triple-Michelin-starred chef Antoine Westermann (Strasbourg’s Le Buerehiesel). Like its French sister, the 3,000- square-foot Flatiron edition will feature whole-roasted birds, duck rillettes and fried chicken heart. 30 E 20th St

Bagel with lox at Russ & Daughters


Russ & Daughters: In an exceedingly tidy partnership, fourth-generation owners Niki Russ Federman and Josh Russ Tupper are bringing an outpost of the iconic appetizing store to the Jewish Museum this fall: a 70-seat full-service kosher spot serving their fresh-baked bagels, breads and babka. 1109 Fifth Ave

Mah-Ze-Dahr: Since scoring a high-profile fan in Tom Colicchio with her brioche doughnuts and stunningly fudgy brownies, Umber Ahmad and co-chef Shelly Acuña Barbera have been working out of Colicchio’s ‘wichcraft headquarters for two years. Now the online and wholesale operation goes brick and mortar with this Village spot, opening in November. 28 Greenwich Ave
