View as Map

The New York restaurant world is notoriously hard on transplants, whether from foreign countries or rival cities.

Some cheesemongers, coffee roasters, cupcakeries, pizzerias, ramen shops, and even a mediocre but flashy restaurant by the name of Mr. Chow have been able to take a concept that worked elsewhere and bring it to the finicky food scene and succeed. Look ahead for stories of 10 transplant survivors and one greatly anticipated import.
