If it’s one thing about the CWNM girls, we throw down on a plate of food! We absolutely love new cool places with great drinks, atmosphere, and a to-die-for menu! We’ve put together a must-do list of places we’ve visited or got great reviews from for you to check out for the coming week. We want to bring you a list of the best of the best each week. For us, Autumn is the season of comfort food. Eat. Drink. Stay Fly.
200 Fifth Avenue | New York, NY
Superstar chefs Mario Batali, Lidia Bastianich and Joe Bastianich have teamed up to open a branch of the Turin, Italy-based food and wine market in the Flatiron District. Eataly promises to be temple of Mediterranean gastronomy with a plethora of food shops as well as a Neapolitan pizzeria, a steakhouse and upcoming rooftop beer garden.
2. Buttermilk Channel
524 Court Street | Brooklyn, NY
Its name refers to the strait between Brooklyn and Governors Island, though the name also functions as a double entendre, buttermilk being deployed as an ingredient not only in the batter for fried chicken but also in the house-made ricotta that’s layered into an appetizer tart.
3. Bare Burger
535 Laguardia Place | Manhattan, NY 10012
33 – 21 31st Avenue | Astoria, NY 11106
While respecting the lore and appeal of the classic American burger, the six friends who created Bareburger also aim to update that staple by offering countless options and using healthier ingredients. Voila — an organic burger that also lets the customers choose exactly how they want it prepared.
4. T Salon
459 West 15th Street | New York, NY
You’ll find a tranquil mix of international teas, vegan pastries and a tea-infused salad bar at this tea emporium in the gourmet mecca that is Chelsea Market.
39 East 58th Street | New York, NY
Already a nightlife fixture in Las Vegas, the NYC Lavo features a restaurant upstairs (with ridiculously hearty food like one-pound meatballs and oreo zeppoles) and a banging nightclub downstairs!
