Speedy Romeo Manhattan, Frankel's And Tapas Cala Open

8 restaurants to add to your must-try list this week

New York City

Frankel's Delicatessen & Appetizing: Brothers and Upper West Side natives Zach and Alex Frankel are bringing a vintage-meets-modern (aka very Brooklyn) Jewish deli and appetizing shop to Greenpoint. They're serving bagels and lox, latkes, their grandmother's brisket, matzo ball soup and bialys. Find Frankel's Delicatessen & Appetizing here, or in our DINE app.

Café Bamba: Now that Temerario is open, Jorge Guzman Hospitality (the team behind the Black Ant) is focusing on its all-day café next door. Early in the day, there are cinnamon waffles and kale eggs Benedict, but later in the evening, the team serves chicken with chorizo and haricots verts and sweet potato gnocchi with queso fresco. Check out the walls for rotating artwork. Find Café Bamba here, or in our DINE app.

Speedy Romeo: Brooklyn pizza destination Speedy Romeo is now turning out pies on the Lower East Side. Find The Saint Louie pizza with Provel, Italian sausage, pepperoni and pickled chiles, and The Kind Brother, which is topped with mushrooms, smoked mozzarella and an egg. And in a nod to the neighborhood, there's one topped with Katz's pastrami. Find Speedy Romeo here, or in our DINE app.

Los Angeles

Le Relais de l'Entrecôte: At this West Hollywood restaurant, white tablecloths are traded for neon ones and every classic French dish for, well, just one, steak frites. The multigenerational chain has been around since 1959 with locations in Paris, Geneva, Dubai and more, and after a two-year tease, there's finally a location opening in L.A.

San Francisco

Tapas Cala: When acclaimed Mexican chef Gabriela Cámara announced the opening of Cala last year, she also promised a take-out taco spot in the back alley. Now that they are both up and running, she's added this tapas place to the mix. The menu is only four items long: oysters, trout tostada, ceviche tostada and smoked trout croquetas, but with the addition of margaritas, Palomas, wine and sangria, not much else seems necessary. Find Tapas Cala here, or in our DINE app.


Robert's Pizza Company: Robert Garvey, who has been testing out his pizzas at home dinners for ages, has finally opened his pizzeria in the old Flour & Stone space. His pie menu includes classics, like prosciutto and arugula, and some wackier options, like a huevos rancheros pizza. Find Robert's Pizza Company here, or in our DINE app.

Washington D.C.

Saison Wafel Bar: Think of this new Union Market stand like a crepe bar but a little more substantial. Choose betweens airy Brussels-style or sugared Liège waffles, then top them with whatever you like, whether that means savory bacon and egg or sweet banana and Nutella. It's the all-day breakfast spot dreams are made of. Find Saison Wafel Bar here, or in our DINE app.


Yatai: Michi Ramen's latest is a street food-focused spot at Hole in the Wall. This means baskets of korokke (aka panko-breaded mashed potatoes); lotus root tempura; and grilled, sansho pepper-glazed chicken skewers. Save room for mochi ice cream: It's two for $3, and flavors range from the typical green tea to chocolate espresso. Find Yatai here, or in our DINE app.
