#LoveLocal: Time Out New York celebrates local shops, food and culture

In tough times, we’re backing the independent businesses that represent the soul of the city—with a special focus on LGBTQ+ places for Pride

Hello, New York!

Time Out editors have been seeking out the best of the city since 1968. We know that New York is nothing without its restaurants, bars, theaters, music venues, nightclubs, cinemas, art galleries—and all the other local, independently run places where people come together to eat, drink, laugh and think.

If we don’t take action right now, countless venues will close forever. Many places, already struggling to pay their sky-high New York rents, are now dealing with months of lost revenue.

We’re determined to help. That's why we've launched our Love Local campaign to support local food, drink, culture and entertainment in New York. We're using this space to tell their stories and share their shoppable wares so that you can pitch in and lend a hand. This month, we're shining a special spotlight on thriving local LGBTQ+ spots around the world for Pride.

You can follow us on Facebook and Instagram to hear more about our ongoing campaign. As New York adjusts to its new reality, we’ll continue to support local independent venues, and the people that bring them to life. Keep scrolling to see Time Out's Love Local campaign in action and consider supporting a New York business today.

Local LGBTQ+ around the world worth celebrating

  • LGBTQ+

If the last year has taught us anything, it’s that nothing can replace the experience of being in a shared physical space with people you love. For the global LGBTQ+ community, that need is especially strong. Around the world, LGBTQ+ people have flocked to bars, community centers, bookstores and more in search of a sense of belonging. Now, after over a year of global lockdowns, canceled events and closed doors, many of these thriving community hubs are in need of a little extra love.

This Pride month, Time Out is celebrating the local spaces around the world that serve as beating hearts of LGBTQ+ communities. We asked Time Out editors across the globe to nominate their favorite LGBTQ+ hotspots, and the results were both varied and inspiring – from a GLBT museum in San Francisco and a picnic spot in Paris to great bars from Madrid to Hong Kong

Not only will this list give you plenty of great ideas for fun spots to hit up on your next trip, it also rounds up specific crowdfunding pages and donation opportunities to show some support before you can make it there in person. Think of them as tip jars – you can throw a little money in before you’re able to celebrate there IRL. Happy Pride, and we’ll see you out there!

Share your favourite local spots with us via the #LoveLocal hashtag – and follow Time Out’s Love Local campaign as we celebrate and support the independent food, drink and culture venues that make our cities great.

The hint of a chill in the air, the crunch of a single leaf under your cute fall boot, a pile of pumpkins outside the bodega poised to become jack-o’lanterns–the outset of autumn in New York is the seasonal equivalent of a heart-quickening flirtation. And, unlike an early infatuation, it just keeps getting more delicious as the days go on.  Nationally, the arrival of fall is signaled by the annual pumpkin spice panic, but here in the five boroughs, we have many more seasonal flavor options than vaguely fragrant orange powder of dubious origin. Here are 14 to try right now, and we’ll keep adding more until it’s time to switch to Christmas cookies.  Apple crisp pudding at Magnolia Bakery  Long famed for its banana pudding (second only to its iconic cupcakes!) it’s curious that NYC sweets shop Magnolia Bakery has waited this long to propose other pudding options. But now, and only for the month of November, Magnolia has a brand-new apple crisp variety, which layers a creamy, fresh apple base with a crumbly topping.

Halloween is as much a food holiday as any other, and New York City has plenty of ways to eat and drink through Sunday, October 31. In lieu of nostalgic pillowcases full of candy, we have plenty of BOOzycocktails, spooktacular sweets and festive foodstuffs to celebrate the spooky season’s main event. So hop on your broomstick, floss your fangs and prepare to take a bite out of NYC’s best Halloween treats.  RECOMMENDED: Halloween at Time Out Market New York Photograph: Courtesy of La Churreria The Jack-o’-Lantern churros at La Churreria  These sweet little cuties will take the edge off your neighbor’s Halloween decorations and those aggressive scary movie suggestions popping up on various streaming services.

Choosing a favorite restaurant in New York City isn’t easy. We tend to love any place willing to feed us, but some simply stand out for their excellent ingredients, well-crafted cocktails, booze pairings, concept, ambiance, and occasionally an X factor that gives a place its spirit.  So these are those: our favorite spots to eat and drink, and our favorite places to tell everyone else to eat and drink, at this very moment. Some are old, some are new, some are finally getting their due, and each one is worth your time, money and attention.   Note: Many of the city’s best chefs, restaurants and concepts have been welcomed into the Time Out Market. Because that is the highest honor we can award, establishments related to the market have not been ranked here, but you can see them below.  RECOMMENDED: Full guide to the best dishes and drinks in NYC

NYC can be a hard place to live. The rent is too high, the weather is reliably bonkers every single day and the subway can be a bit apocalyptic at times. Thank God, then, for places. That small gift shop where you can always find one-of-a-kind gifts. The coffee with decent coffee and solid wifi. And, of course, the local bars and clubs can’t live without. Now we want to hear about them all. Time Out is launching its annual Love Local Awards today. They’re your chance to tell us about your favorite theater, gallery, bar, museum, restaurant or anything, to give it the exposure it deserves and show it some love. You can nominate as many venues as you like, of whatever type. Once the nominations are in, you’ll get a chance to vote on the ones you think are the stars of NYC. We’ll feature the most loved ones in Time Out, and those outstanding small businesses—the Time Out Love Local Award Winners of 2021—a valuable free marketing and advertising package to help them thrive.  Launching simultaneously in 14 cities across Europe and North America this year, the Love Local Awards are part of Time Out’s commitment to inspire connection and joy by capturing the soul of the world’s greatest cities and support independent businesses, while offering them a platform to give them the recognition they deserve. The 2021 Love Local Awards nominations are open from October 26 until November 5, You can vote from November 11 to December 17, and the awards winners will be announced in the New Year.

While we were busy catching up with all of New York's best restaurants, a whole new slew of excellent dining destinations started popping up to further complicate our reservation schedules and meticulously orchestrated walk-in efforts.

This perpetually updated list includes the best new restaurants that have opened over the past six months. That means Victor, Pig & Butter and Kuxé depart this edition, and October's joiners include vegan soul food, hard to find mole, the buzzy followup to a popular downtown spot, a 2019 opening’s excellent second act and the new restaurant at Manhattan’s only bourbon distillery.

Overthrow Hospitality is an NYC leader among plant-based restaurants (Avant Garden and Ladybird among them), and this year’s Cadence, which opened in the East Village on March 31, is emerging as the group’s crown jewel. The narrow restaurant’s interior shines like precious stones, with a gleaming marble bar, emerald-green tiled floor and shades of blue and bronze throughout. If you snag one of the 12 seats at its popular chef’s counter, it’s like dining in a dainty music box. There’s also room for about 18 more in the outdoor dining setup on East 7th Street.   Executive chef Shenarri Freeman has created a list of vegan soul food hits, including a standout southern fried lasagna. Layers of pasta, pine nut ricotta, spinach and a red wine Beyond Meat bolognese are rolled into cylinders, breaded and deep-fried to golden. Every bite of the lasagna is perfect—crisped at the edges with a yielding chew and zippy sauce that’s allowed to shine. It also has the added satisfaction of a nice crunch thanks to its turn through the deep fryer. And it's an excellent study in subtlety. Any more crumbled meat substitute and it would have become a "Beyond Lasagna," rather than the signature dish that it is.  Other menu highlights include silky smoked grits (rich with torched oyster mushrooms, plump, bursting corn kernels and crispy garlic and shallots like savory candy) and hearts of palm cakes with chickpeas, prepared with a lightly crunchy finish and flaky center served atop a perky chipotle a

The Instagram Thing is an occasional column spotlighting things you’ll want to Instagram. Our previous editions highlighted the ten-foot snake topiary at the Standard East Village, the pegasus at Serendipity3 the beef tartare at Little Mad and the bicycles at GupShup.  We seldom have the opportunity to commune with nature in New York, save for the odd brush with a pigeon, chance meeting with a bodega cat, or sinister city mandate that we smash a certain insect on sight. The closest most of us ever get to furry friends is at the Museum of Natural History and on subway platforms. But no more!  Spaghetti Tavern, which opened on the Upper West Side in March, has brought a little bit of the country to Manhattan by way of a moose. Apparently named Willie (representatives for the restaurant did not immediately respond at press time), the majestic beast is poised atop the Old West-themed Italian spot’s outdoor dining shed.  View this post on Instagram A post shared by Spaghetti Tavern (@spaghettitavern) Though not as large as real moose, which are surprisingly big enough to generate viral content when photographed near an SUV every few years, Willie’s still pretty substantial, and definitely detailed enough to pop in a snapshot.  Most Instagram Things place you at the center of the action. There’s you, doing a thing! But, because Willie the moose is several feet off the ground, you can neither ride it, nor hug it, nor kiss it in the nose. But this position,

After successfully running a lovely rooftop omakase with à la carte options at the Sanctuary Hotel, Sushi Lab has expanded back on the surface of the earth with The Chemistry Room at Sushi Lab. The new restaurant opens today, October 21, on the hotel’s ground floor.  The intimate space is lined with wood with an accent wall of verdant flora. It seats ten at a lovely, backlit chef’s counter, with room for twenty more at tables throughout. A 13-course omakase is $100. The opening menu includes Wagyu beef, a tuna flight and a smokey miso soup presented in a beaker to pull the whole laboratory theme into focus.  Sake, wine and beer are available, along with signature cocktails. The Mr. Chiri includes tequila, yuzu, red chili peppers and cilantro. The Morning Glory mixes gin, basil, grapefruit syrup and egg white. And the punny Pearfection is made with soju, pear puree, lemon juice and pea flower syrup. The Chemistry Room at Sushi Lab is located at 130 W. 47th Street and is open from Tuesday-Saturday from 5pm to 11pm.

Brownstone Brooklyn's newest attraction is a win-win for kids and parents.  While you're sipping a hot chocolate (perhaps with a shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream), your kiddos can whip around Court Street Tavern's debut ice skating rink. The newly opened Carroll Gardens restaurant has taken outdoor accommodations and upped the ante; while most eateries have opted for heated tents, this South Brooklyn spot has created its own destination for winter fun.  Meet the Court Street Ice Rink. Photograph: Time Out / Danielle Valente Photograph: Time Out / Danielle Valente Photograph: Courtesy Emily Bartlett Perfect for ages 13 and under, the super-cute "glice" rink from Matt Shendell of Paige Concepts is open daily from 12:15–7:15pm for $25 per child (including skate rentals). Parents can make reservations on Resy for 45-minute sessions and walk-ins are welcome. For an additional $10, moms and dads can rent a skate aid seal—an adorable buddy looking to help your little skaters keep their balance. Note that lockers are not available, so be prepared to hang onto those winter boots.  Plus, there's more good news. TVs are stationed right above the rink, so you can have your eyes on the game, your lil' winter Olympian and that tasty Hot Toddy. We told you this would be a win-win for everyone!

Update: The completely redesigned Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals will now open in spring 2021 as opposed to February 2021. An exact date has not been revealed. We'll be sure to update you as soon as we know more.  Looks like we're going to have to be patient.  The Museum of Natural History's completely redesigned Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals will now open in 2021 as opposed to this fall. But judging from the details, we have a feeling it'll be well worth the wait. On Feb 17, 2021, the family attraction will welcome visitors to the 11,000 square-foot space that house roughly 5,000 pieces from 95 countries. Guests can catch a glimpse of a 3,000-pound block of iridescent green and blue labradorite, the Singing Stone from the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago and the new "Beautiful Creatures" exhibit, which will celebrate historic and contemporary jewelry inspired by animals. Patrons will be able to find it in halls’ first temporary exhibition space. Plus, as an added bonus for the little learners in your crew, the Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals will be the perfect spot for children with an interest in earth science, as it promises to be an invaluable resource for schools and camps.  Courtesy AMNH “Generations of New Yorkers have loved the Museum’s mineral and gem halls, storing up memories of family visits and marveling at the glamorous displays of utterly spectacular minerals and gems,” Ellen V.

Museums in New York City were given the green light to reopen at limited capacity on Aug 23. Although family attractions such as The Museum of Natural History and The Met started welcoming back visitors, most of our favorite children's museums only remain active online. However, the Children's Museum of the Arts just announced its plans in a Sept 18 newsletter.  "After evaluating options to reopen safely, we have made the difficult decision to stay closed for the remainder of the year," the note read. "Though our doors remain shut, we are more dedicated than ever to pursuing our mission of providing transformational and accessible arts opportunities through online content and programs." There are still plenty of ways to enjoy the best of the attraction: Art pods, parent workshops and virtual kids' classes are some of the offerings that'll keep the creative juices flowing this fall. No matter your little artist's interest, CMANY has the perfect fit, from its graphic novel club to animation and character design, among other cool after-school programs.

All guests 3 and up are required to wear a mask and social distance when on the grounds. Additionally, advanced tickets are required before attending and reentry is not permitted.
