There are few dining experiences as fun as Korean barbecue—and when that Korean barbecue is dry-aged beef, it’s even better. Cote takes the best parts of the American steakhouse—the quality of the meat, the attention to detail, the big, brawny wine lists—and brings them to the traditional Korean setting, where diners grill the meat themselves, right on the table in front of them.

On the rooftop of Williamsburg’s William Vale hotel is Westlight, one of the best spots to drink cocktails in all of New York City. Take in the view as you work your way through the drink menu, and pad your stomach with delicious snacks like charred-eggplant dumplings, spiced chicken empanadas, and duck-carnitas tacos.
