New York City’s 18 Greatest Restaurants
New York is undoubtedly a restaurant city. In a place where most people live in small apartments with even tinier kitchens, restaurants aren’t just a convenience—they stand in for New Yorkers’ living rooms and backyards, giving residents spaces to gather outside their homes. While there are restaurants on every city block, there are some that make such an impact on the city’s culture that it’s hard to imagine New York without them. Some have been around so long that they’ve become synonymous with a cuisine or neighborhood, such as Grand Central Oyster Bar and its 100-plus years inside its namesake train station. Some are newcomers that immediately expand the restaurant landscape, like Rangoon’s singular approach to Burmese food in Brooklyn. And some, like Harlem’s Red Rooster, support their community as much as their community supports them. These are the qualities that make up The Greats: a list of 18 restaurants, ranging from laidback to dressed up, that define what it means to eat, live, and love in New York City.
