Behind the fast-casual restaurant is chef Katsuji Tanabe, who competed on Bravo’s Top Chef after working at four-star Bastide as well as Maestro’s in LA. Katsuji's Mexican heritage influences dishes like chicken taquitos, chimichangas, and a torta. The Kosher element comes from Tanabe's stint at Shilo's, a Kosher steakhouse in Los Angeles. DIY options include burritos, bowls, and salads with fillings like duck carnitas and lamb. Status: Certified Open; 100 West 83 Street

Online ordering is available, too. Status: Certified Open; 1709 Second Avenue, 212-722-7272

7) Flatiron: The health-driven folks at Reviver opened a second location of their restaurant yesterday, where all food is rated with a Nutrient Score. Each score is based on ten nutrients and pins Reviver's burger against, say, a ShackBurger. It's intended to signal how "nutrient dense" each item is. Other hot options include a barbecue chicken salad, mahi-mahi, and a pot pie without the pie. Sandwiches, soups, salads, and tacos are also available. Reviver is open Monday to Saturday for lunch and dinner and is available for delivery. Status: Certified Open; 303 Park Avenue South, 646-952-0014
