Nightlife maven Heather Tierney turns from witching-hour boozing to daylight revitalization via this hybrid juice bar and vegetarian "butcher" shop. Perch at the 16-foot-long bar for one of the colorful concoctions like a Hangover Killer, a piña colada–like mixture of coconut water, pineapple juice, yuzu, chili and evening primrose oil.

For the Goop reader: The Goddess of Green (kale, cucumber, green apple, fennel, pineapple, thyme, and spirulina).

Health fanatics can order "super greens" in liquid form (kale-spinach, cucumber-celery with activated charcoal), fruit-forward concoctions (spicy citrus, pineapple-strawberry-ginger) or enhanced waters (aloe, damascena rose) to go at this spacious, glass-walled juicery.

For the Dorian Grey wannabe: The Fountain of Youth (strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, banana, flaxseed, chia, agave, and maple syrup)

Devoted downtown juicers can add this pulpy FiDi spot to their cadre of fresh-squeeze hangouts. Certified health coach Jil Larsen teamed up with chef Lawrence Todd (Earth Matters) for the raw grab-and-go concept, peddling plant-based fare. On the menu are fresh juices and superfood smoothies packed with good-for-you ingredients like spinach, kale and ginger.

Run by Francesca "Sol" Chaney, this casual vegan cafe and juice bar in the heart of Bushwick is dedicated to make plant-based eating affordable and accessible not just to the neighborhood's newcomers but rather, lower-income community members who are often left out of the white-dominated vegan conversation. 

For the egg-nog-even-when-it's-not-Christmas lover: Iced Nog (coconut milk, sea moss, banana, cinnamon, and cloves)

Now you can feast with more than just your eyes when it comes to Queer Eye heartthrob Antoni Porowski. The Netflix star is dishing out healthy-ish fast-casual fare in a reopened—and completely remodeled— former greasy-spoon diner right across from (where else?) Equinox. 

For the Antoni superfan: The Big Porowski (bananas, dates, mango, Greek yogurt, almond milk, and lime zest)

Hero, hoagie, grinder, sub—whatever you call ’em, New Yorkers love a good sandwich, whether it’s a piled-high pastrami sandwich on rye to a gooey patty melt at one of the best diners in NYC. And the latest incarnations are the best thing since sliced bread, what with lively new sandwich shops in NYC dedicated to breaking the meat-cheese-and-bun mold, from stacked-high Dagwoods to jaw-testing Italian combos.
