Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Almost every seat in this posh Todd English nook in the downtown W Hotel is a prime position for people-watching: Giant, mostly uncovered windows nicely frame the stream of Greenmarket revelers and skatepunks alike—perfect for the longish wait between courses. A wonderful warm escargot-and–goat cheese flatbread will keep your stomach from grumbling before the arrival of a juicy, tender brick oven–roasted chicken in a foamy garlic glaze. The desserts can be fairly vanilla—both figuratively and, in the case of a soufflé with Tahitian vanilla ice cream, literally—but a delicious, supersweet butterscotch tiramisu will disappear quick if you don’t pay more attention to your dining partner’s fork than the crowd outside.
