NYC Restaurants

The city that never sleeps, or the city that always eats? Although New York has its mainstays—the pizza, deli sandwiches and bagels that have made it famous among food lovers—the city offers more than a few surprises when it comes to food and dining out. In this section we’ll help you narrow your New York City restaurant options and find exactly what you crave. Look for reviews by critics and fellow diners, top-notch delivery services, the lowdown on the biggest food events in the city and more.

Insights for NYC Restaurants

  • Often, the personality of a neighborhood is a good indicator of the personality of the cuisine you’ll find there. Upscale areas have fancier restaurants. Office-heavy neighborhoods like Midtown and Wall Street lack innovative fare but are full of mid-price lunch places and chains like Cosi and Guy & Gallard types of eateries, which are usually closed on the weekends.
  • If you’re new in town and feeling overwhelmed by the countless restaurants, trendy dishes and foodie culture, don’t forget the classics. New York is still a great place to grab a slice of pizza or a hot dog from a street vendor. In most cases, you can fill up for less than $5.
  • Many New York City restaurants don’t take reservations, in which case you should be ready to wait for a table. But a growing number of eateries are allowing online reservations, according to The New York Times.
  • The outer boroughs offer an outstanding array of ethnic foods and trendier upscale cuisines (especially in Park Slope and Cobble Hill in Brooklyn). Eating In Translation is a blog with sections about each borough.
