Drunken Munkey: "A Bollywood flick plays, the churidar-outfitted waitstaff deliver railroad chicken on placemats mapping British India ... A first-time visitor chose a Wise Old Monkey (Old Monk rum, crème de banane, orange bitters) over a Lady Mountbatten (Scotch, Pamplemousse, strawberry gastrique), named for the wife of the last viceroy to India and a rumored lover of Nehru.” (Illustration by Rebecca Mock)

A Harlem institution: "Most evenings, a crowd of familiar faces congregates at the long bar, helping themselves to trays of collard greens, mac and cheese, and fried chicken from a counter in the back, and tapping their feet to “Take the A Train” (though the 2 and 3 are closer)." http://nyr.kr/1LlHkRg (Illustration by Jeannie Phan)

Black Rabbit: "A fireplace for winter, a back garden for summer, dark-wood booths (“snugs”) with saloon doors for clandestine date-night canoodling in any season, and jovial Nerd Alert! trivia every Tuesday" (Illustration by Andrea Kalfas)

Streetbird: "The new place is a lively, endearing but painfully unsubtle homage to Harlem through the decades, from the graffiti on the rafters to the sneakers dangling from the sprinkler system and the booths upholstered in Louis Vuitton and Gucci leather." http://nyr.kr/1ETrI22 (Photograph by Brian Finke)

Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co.: “On a recent Sunday, the tacos shared billing with a hearty, house-smoked-bluefish hash topped with arugula and poached eggs; thick folds of arctic-char gravlax, strewn with capers and dill and served with a Black Seed bagel; and sweet, slippery lobes of sea urchin nestled in its spiny vessel.” (Photograph by James Pomerantz)

Astoria Seafood: "People of all ages, ethnicities, and economic brackets are drawn by a powerful common denominator: fresh fish, prepared simply and sold at a fraction of what it costs almost anywhere else." http://nyr.kr/1F0j8ix (Photograph by Lauren Lancaster.)

The atmosphere alone could be enough to warrant a visit: a burlap-walled, cedar-accented party hosted by a low-key, affable celebrity. http://nyr.kr/1IFr7Il (Photograph by David Brandon Geeting)

“At the Black Ant, in the East Village, the house guacamole varies; it has been studded with garbanzo beans, fried corn, orange slices, jicama, radishes, and even cheese. But it is always finished with ants.” http://nyr.kr/1J8jsP0 Photograph by Dina Litovsky

At Faro, a new Italian restaurant in Bushwick, the kitchen makes its flour from grains grown upstate and then turns it into inventive pasta shapes. There’s also a wood-burning oven that does wonders with asparagus and octopus, animal-welfare-approved meat, and a minimalist dining room so cool and spacious that it looks like an imagined Los Angeles. http://nyr.kr/1hzJCD6 (Photograph by Jeremy Liebman)
