Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
That’s all, folks—2016 went out with a soul-crushing thud, but at least the last month of the year brought us a solid crop of new restaurants, from an East Village branch of a Michelin-starred dim sum restaurant, to a loving homage to some of the best New York pizzas, to the return of one of the most beloved and famous restaurants in NYC. From modern Cantonese grub to globe-pulling Mexican, these are the best new restaurants that debuted in New York this December.
