The Pool

midtown / 99 EAST 52ND STREET between park + lexington avenues

“The newest debut from Major Food Group will be decidedly more buttoned-up than its predecessor [The Grill] and likely the most ambitious of the three restaurants in the [Four Seasons] space, as it’s the one gunning for Michelin.” — Zagat

The Grill

midtown / 99 EAST 52ND STREET between park + lexington avenues

“With one flashy opening after the next, the restaurateurs behind the Major Food Group continue to redefine over-the-top, an ethos on full display at their latest The Grill, which opened inside the storied Four Seasons. Chef Mario Carbone’s menu revives the mid-century chophouse.” — The Gothamist

Public Kitchen

Lower east side / 215 CHRYSTIE STREET BETWEEN STANTON + HOUSTON STREETS

“At the 150-seat restaurant, Jean-Georges Vongerichten and his executive chef Thomas McKenna take a smorgasbord approach to the food. Breakfast is in the vein of hotel continental food, but dinner features a mishmash of cuisines — meant to, Vongerichten says, represent New York’s intermingling tapestry of cultures — with a touch of the chef’s signature style.” — Grub Street

Cecconi’s

DUMBO, BROOKLYN / 55 WATER STREET

“This high-end Italian restaurant group has planted its flag in Brooklyn. Nick Jones, the founder of Soho House, which owns the restaurant group, decided on Brooklyn because he wanted a location with outdoor seating and great views. The chef, Riccardo Bilotta, is collaborating with Andrea Cavaliere, who oversees all Cecconi’s menus. They are creating an all-day menu of cicchetti (Venetian small bites), carpaccios, salads, pastas like spaghetti with lobster, pizzas and dishes like veal Milanese and branzino in broth. Mr. Jones described the restaurant as an “Italian grand brasserie” — NY Times

Narcbar

EAST VILLAGE / 25 COOPER SQUARE BETWEEN 5TH + 6TH STREET

“From the vegetable-obsessed chef behind Michelin-starred Dovetail, John Fraser is opening a casual bar with booze-friendly foods like onion rings, a burger, and his version of the Georgian cheesy bread, khachapuri. Named for his East Village American restaurant Narcissa, Narcbar isn’t in a new space, but a remodeled portion of that restaurant in The Standard.” — Eater

Nur

gramercy / 34 east 20th street between park avenue + broadway

“From Turkey to Israel to Palestine, this Flatiron Middle Eastern puts a contemporary spin on the flavors of the region, serving small plates and larger dishes to share, along with fragrant breads and desserts. Tiled floors, warm lighting and a marble bar set the mood for dinner and drinks.” — Zagat

Cote

FLATIRON / 16 WEST 22ND STREET BETWEEN PARK AVENUE + BROADWAY

“Simon Kim, owner of Michelin-starred Piora in the West Village, has used that team to focus on beverages and points of service at the newly opened Cote in the Flatiron. But this restaurant — a Korean steakhouse serving chophouse classics, dry-aged beef, and dishes like bibimbap — is his baby.” — Eater

CHELSEA / 206 9TH AVENUE BETWEEN 22ND + 23RD STREETS

“This contemporary Chelsea locale by chef-owner Gaurav Anand (Bhatti, Awadh) delivers eclectic, shareable Indian fare with fanciful presentations. In a space with sweeping lines and soft lighting, the prominent bar stirs up cocktails with an inventive, savory bent.” — Zagat

Mifune

MIDTOWN EAST / 245 EAST 44TH STREET BETWEEN 2ND + 3RD AVENUES

“The same way Toshiro Mifune crossed the ocean and became appreciated in the world, young talented chefs from the top stages of the culinary world will come together and open this restaurant in New York City. The menu producer, Hiroki Yoshitake, is the owner and chef of “Sola” in Paris, France, which has received a Michelin star.” — Resy

Out East

EAST VILLAGE / 509 EAST 6TH STREET BETWEEN AVENUES A + B

“Seafood crudo dishes and other snacks kick off the New American dinners at this East Village locale that takes inspiration from the Long Island coast. Summery cocktails and French and American wines dominate the drink list, while natural woods and big, colorful banquettes add to the carefree vibe.” — Zagat

B at Home from David Bouley

Opening Late Summer 2017

B at Home will open July at the earliest, a wine bar with food in the Flatiron District next door to where David Bouley recently relocated his test kitchen. Although it’s been widely reported that he’s preparing to open a smaller version of his flagship at 17 Harrison Street, it’ll be at least a year before that debut, says a source. As he told the Times last year, the new restaurant will have 20 to 25 seats compared to the 120 seats at its Duane Street home, and it will only be open five days a week.”  — Eater

Sugarcane Dumbo

Opening Late Summer 2017

Tetsu

Opening Late Summer 2017

“Acclaimed chef Masa Takayama will open a bi-level restaurant housed in a historic TriBeCa loft. First up, will be the ground-floor dining room that will offer a casual menu of robatayaki dishes, salads and Masa’s first-ever burger complemented by an approachable selection of local beers and wines, and a list of craft cocktails created with regional spirits. Later this year, Takayama will open the more refined and luxurious subterranean portion of the restaurant.” — Zagat

The Aviary

Opening Late Summer / Early Fall 2017

“When Chicago’s most famous cocktail bar the Aviary opens on the 35th floor of the Mandarin Oriental this summer, restaurateur Nick Kokonas and chef Grant Achatz will serve breakfast and lunch drinks, particularly ones that don’t showcase alcohol, as well as a robust evening cocktail selection akin to the drinks that made the Aviary world-famous. Expect a small bites menu like those in Chicago like wagyu with smoked paprika, pumpkin seed, and yogurt, and a potato dish with custard, malt vinegar chips, and chive.” — Eater

“A critically-acclaimed roast duck restaurant with Michelin stars from Beijing will soon be opening its first U.S. location near Bryant Park. Beijing-based Da Dong, run by chef Dong Zhenxiang, signed a lease for two stories, two outdoor terraces, and nearly 13,000-square-feet of space at 3 Bryant Park.
