Bowery Meat Company Stars and finance whales alike flock to John McDonald’s grandiose, midcentury steakhouse, where chef Josh Capon (Lure Fishbar) turns out hulking steaks served with traditional sides of spinach and various forms of potatoes.
Rustic, French-Catalonian border fare is the focus of this 89-seat outfit by Henry Rich (Rucola, June Wine Bar), decked out to resemble a country inn with ceiling barnwood, stained glass window inserts and a dark, walnut bar.
Housed within the uber-luxe Baccarat Hotel opened earlier this year, this modern French dining room offers bar snacks as well as composed plates from Michelin-awarded toque Shea Gallante.
Eleven Madison Park
At the helm of one of the world’s most decorated gastronomic destinations, trailblazing toque Daniel Humm and impresario-partner Will Guidara turn out a fluid, coherent American tasting menu enlivened with consistent reinvention.
II Buco Alimentari & Vineria

California chef Jonathan Waxman’s modern-day reincarnation of his seminal, ’80’s farm-to-table eatery doles out holdovers from the bygone decade (tarragon butter chicken, red pepper pancakes) along with newfangled creations, like a cheddar-bacon burger and Maine lobster gnocchi.
Laurent Tourondel’s 90-seat newcomer honors his rural European upbringing with pastoral digs (rustic Windsor chairs, accordion-style sliding windows) and rustic plates (sausage pizza, seafood agnolotti) snugging vegetables issued from a copper-clad wood-burning oven.
The sprawling, brass-hued mainstay by hitmaker Andrew Carmellini turns out French staples in the expansive dining room and coffee and sweets—baked by lauded pastry chef Jen Yee—in the front café.
