Tasting Table's New York City Guide

Where to eat, drink and shop in New York City

Museums? Culture? Sure, sureā€“if there's time between lunch and pre-dinner drinks.

We understand. You travel for the food. It's OK. We do too.

And when you're visiting a new city, you want to know where the locals go and you don't want to waste a single meal.

Today we're launching the first of our Tasting Table City Guides, a ten-city culinary concierge service offering a thoughtfully curated cross-section of where to eat, drink and shop right now.

First up: New York City, unstoppable capital of everythingness. A city impossible to sum up in a single list but we're game to try. Check out our current obsessions (Alder, Estela) and classic crushes (Keens Steakhouse, Prune), plus the best bars, markets and a couple of tips from some favorite international imports (Daniel Boulud and Daniel Humm).

We'll be updating the guides monthly, so check back if you're planning another trip. If you live here, use the City Guide to see what we're digging, right now in your own city. And let us know what the list is missing and where we should go next.

See you around the city.
