Mexican | Upper West Side, Manhattan

Absolutely amazing. The portions are the right size, the drinks and food are both delicious. The servers are attentive and knowledgeable. Additionally, we were going to a show at the Beacon after and the place was a little busy so I was concerned about timing. No need, they are efficient but not rushed. I didn't even mention the time constraint, that's just how this place operates. Our little basket of chips was just getting to the bottom and another showed up without asking. Can't say enough wonderful things about this place. More

Brewery | Astoria, Queens

SingleCut Beersmiths was founded by Queens/NYC born, music-obsessed brewer Rich Buceta, whose life-long passions led to a place where hops and vinyl could shine side by side. After years of homebrewing and professional stints around NYC, Rich was true to his dream, diving headfirst into the brewing world. “My obsession is creating original hop-driven beer; distinguished by a firm respect and admiration for West Coast pioneers, and bending that to our East Coast / NYC interpretation.” Since opening in 2012, and with the help of an equally talented and devoted team, SingleCut has gained a loyal following throughout the East-Coast’s most respected markets. With his steadfast determination for the perfect pint, Rich penned "Mastery Knows No Shortcut" as the SingleCut mission statement. “It boils down to always demanding greatness, never compromising, and always play it at maximum volume.”More

French | SoHo, Manhattan

St Tropez Wine Bar provides a cozy and festive environment to its guests; just as you would expect from the South of France’s generous culture. The refined wood on the ceiling and shelves, combined with the diffused lights and candles, contribute to a warm and vibrant atmosphere. Our open kitchen concept and the massive communal table located in the heart of the restaurant set the tone for the values and beliefs we intend to bring to the place – sharing and caring.More

Discover New York

When a city never sleeps, waking hours are spent in cafes, diners, bars and restaurants of every shape and size that give New York its unique flavor. Once famous for pizza by-the-slice (local loyalties run deep), black-and-white cookies, and old world, mahogany-paneled steakhouses—the dining rooms of titans of business and other famous folks—Manhattan is now estimated to have 24,000 restaurants, from midtown’s korean barbecue to fast casual vegan burgers. Pillowy pork buns? You got it. French rotisserie? That too. And, of course, there will always be the perfect bagel, preferably toasted dark with smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato, onions, and capers.
