Fine Dining in New York
You can eat well anywhere in New York, but the settings are suitably refined and the cuisine is masterfully French-influenced in such gastronomic uptown spots as Daniel, Dovetail, and Jean Georges. Then again, refined French cuisine is served in sophisticated, subdued surroundings downtown, too, most notably at Bouley’s, while the mouthwatering sushi at Nobu in Tribeca is said to be the best this side of Tokyo, eliciting raves from celebrities and foodies alike.
For some genuine New York buzz, pull up a chair at the bar of the elegant Gramercy Tavern in the Flatiron District or charm your way into getting a table at the celebrity magnet Waverly Inn in Greenwich Village. To sample some of the most original and creative – some say bizarre – haute-cuisine in the city, head to Lowlife on the Lower East Side.
