This secretive steakhouse is hidden in a restored bank vault under the New Yorker Hotel. Hearty dishes like the New York strip and hangar steak come from executive chef Scott Campbell.

The pint-sized omakase spot in the Lower East Side has an eight-seat counter, two seating times (5:30pm and 8:30pm) for dinner and one omakase served.

This Staten Island Mexican restaurant-slash-adult-playground has it all: Skee-Ball, esquites, video games and guacamole.

Uncle Jack’s Meat House
