The 15 New York Restaurants with the Hottest Servers

New York City is full of insanely attractive waiters, waitresses and bartenders, but some deserve special recognition. Here's a list of the 15 New York restaurants with the hottest servers.

2011_miss_lilys1.jpg 15) Miss Lily's: Here, you'll see beautiful waifs in flowing floral print dresses, and chill downtown dudes that look like they probably restore old motorcycles when they're not serving jerk patties. The hottest staff on Houston St. [Eater Place Page]

2011_coffee_shop1.jpg14) Coffee Shop: For years, there was a rumor that this Union Square diner only hired models. That may not be the case anymore, but the staff here will still make you feel inferior, 24-hours a day. [Eater Place Page] (photo)

2011_public_hotties1.jpg13) Public: The people that work at this hip Nolita restaurant dress and look like snappy barbers or butchers or something. Whatever they're going for, it works — neat, nice and coiffed just right. [Eater Place Page] (photo)

2011_peels_hot_staff.jpg 12) Peels: The most casually fashionable/beautiful staff in Manhattan. The girls make Annie Hall look like Raggedy Ann, and the guys make James Franco look like his Pineapple Express co-star, Seth Rogen. [Eater Place Page]

2011_schillers_liquor_bar1.jpg11) Schiller's Liquor Bar: All of Keith McNally's restaurants are staffed with exceptionally comely people, but Schiller's takes the cake for variety of hotness. Aspiring starlets, soulful artists-types, salty Europeans — they're all here, and they all look great in those shirts with the choking hazard sign on the back. [Eater Place Page] (photo)

2011_jo_leo1.jpg10) Joseph Leonard: If there's one thing we've learned from Gabe Stulman's restaurants, it's that people from Wisconsin are really good looking. On the whole, Jo Leo staffers are charming, handsome and stylish in an "I wish I thought of that" way. Little Wisco = muy caliente. [Eater Place Page] (photo)

2011_stumptown_ace_hotel1.jpg9) Stumptown at the Ace Hotel: Who knew the cast of Newsies would grow up to be so damn hot? Style aside, these kids have soft features and great complexions, possibly because many are from the dewy hills or Portland, OR. Just don't expect them to make a heart shape in your latte.

2011_eataly_gelato1.jpg8) The Gelato Counter at Eataly: We have no idea if the ice cream scoopers are this cute in Italy, but mama mia! Adorable girls, dreamy guys, delicious spumoni. [Eater Place Pages](photo)

2011_jones_woods_foundry1.jpg7) Jones Wood Foundry: Listen up ladies: don't let the woodsy, country-chic vibe of this place fool you. There are no bearded moleskin-scribblers working here, just hunky dudes, and lots of 'em. A sexy man-vortex on the UES. [Eater Place Page] (photo)

2011_m_wells_hotties1.jpg6) M. Wells: Here's one reason to hop on the 7-train: hot Canadians. They sort of look like The Arcade Fire, minus that big dork in the glasses. [Eater Place Page](photo)

2011_karczm1.jpg5) Karczma: Just trust us on this one. And do get the kielbasa while you're there. It's superb. [Official Site]

2011_PJ_Clarkes1.jpg4) P.J. Clarke's Midtown: A mind boggling combo of hotness and wholesomeness. The staff here look like they popped out of a Norman Rockwell painting, and yet, they work in a place where tanked business guys stand on the tables and sing "Sweet Caroline" on a nightly basis. It's complicated. [Eater Place Page] (photo)

2011_beauty_essex_1.jpg3) Beauty & Essex: Christ Santos's club/restaurant/pawn shop is, as you might expect, staffed with painfully good-looking downtown-types. The space feels like the set of a Chanel ad, the servers just complete the picture. [Eater Place Page] (photo)

2011_fette_sau1.jpg2) Fette Sau: Williamsburg restaurants are full of sexy hipsters, but the staff at this BBQ joint are perhaps the hottest in the nabe. They sort of look like bicycle messengers, but with meat cleavers, and they're somehow really chill about dealing with the monster line. A little bit of zen goes a long way.

2011_rubirosa1.jpg1) Rubirosa: In addition to great pizza, a cool vibe, and sensational cocktails, this Nolita Italian restaurant has a drop-dead gorgeous staff. It's a certain kind of sneaky hotness: these are the kids you don't develop a crush on till the end of the semester, and then there's no going back. [Eater Place Page]
