A slew of new restaurants have opened in recent months, a remarkable change from earlier during the pandemic when many businesses pushed back their launches indefinitely. As New York City settles into this current reality, Eater is highlighting new restaurants in Manhattan — and a few old favorites — offering a mix of indoor and outdoor dining, delivery, and takeout, that have opened in the last few months.

New to the list in September: Saga (the sky-high fine dining debut from the Crown Shy team), One White Street (a Tribeca townhouse converted into an upscale neighborhood restaurant), and Dominique Ansel Workshop (the star pastry chef’s newest dessert wonderland).

The Washington Heights debut of Manhattan Singaporean restaurant Native Noodles marks a significant expansion for chef and owner Amy Pryke, who previously operated a popular food stall of the same name at the Queens Night Market. At the new brick-and-mortar location, Pryke has more room to expand the menu with different takes on Singaporean food including chili crab dip and satay noodles. Early fans of Pryke’s work at Queens Night Market will be pleased to find the chef’s popular interpretation of laksa, a spicy Southeast Asian noodle soup, on the permanent shop’s menu.

Wine industry veteran Yannick Benjamin partnered with George Gallego, Oscar Lorenzzi, Mara Rudzinski, and Lorenz Skeeter to open Contento, a welcoming wine bar with a Peruvian-rooted food menu and an eye toward inclusive hospitality and space accessibility. Contento boasts an ambitious range of wines — at varying price points — paired with a menu led by Lorenzzi that includes dishes like octopus with black chimichurri and chilled cauliflower gazpacho. Benjamin and Gallego, who both use wheelchairs, helped design every inch of the dining room with consideration for wheelchair users, including wide aisles, higher tabletops, and lowered bar seating.

Chick Chick’s chicken-centric menu runs the gamut from crispy Korean fried chicken to chef-owner Jun Park’s more subtle take on Nashville-style hot chicken. Altogether, the restaurant is a can’t-miss new addition to the Upper West Side, Eater chief critic Ryan Sutton writes.

At Shukette, a playful spin-off of Mediterranean favorite Shuka in Soho, acclaimed chef Ayesha Nurdjaja has long-awaited access to an open kitchen, a charcoal grill, and a long list of breakout dishes to try. Early hits include the restaurant’s spicy summer cherry salad, and don’t miss the lineup of housemade dips and breads including a smoked salt cod spread and grilled lafa. Aim for a seat at the counter, where the kitchen team might slip in a few off-menu dishes.

Pastry world star and cronut inventor Dominique Ansel has opened a 4,000-square-foot croissant wonderland in Flatiron: Dominque Ansel Workshop. The new shop — which marks Ansel’s first NYC opening in six years — features six varieties of sweet and savory croissants and a treasure trove of other, picturesque desserts including a rare-to-New-York brioche bressane with “a white, pillowy core that emits the intoxicating scent of orange flower water,” Eater critic Ryan Sutton wrote in an approving review. True to its name, the new space will also eventually offer kitchen workshops and talks to the public, and it’ll serve as Ansel’s experimental lab where he’ll be able to try out new recipes and technologies for future pastry inventions.

In a summer marked by brutal heat waves, it is hard to beat the winning combination of tacos and ceviche, and Flatiron newcomer Tacos Güey has stellar renditions of both, Eater critic Robert Sietsema finds. Led by fine dining chef Henry Zamora, who put in time at Legacy Records in NYC and Quince in SF, the restaurant’s summery escape of a menu includes refreshing plates of scallop aguachile with mint and finger limes, and fish tacos with salsa cruda roja.

From the chef behind famed West Village establishment the Beatrice Inn comes Les Trois Chevaux, a white tablecloth restaurant located next door. Staples of pre-pandemic fine dining are on full display here, not limited to a chandelier acquired from the Waldorf Astoria hotel and a somewhat dated jacket requirement for male diners. The three-course $185 prix-fixe menu from chef Angie Mar rotates often, but has included confit frog legs, veal brain mousse, and a rack of lamb for two.

Last summer’s most-talked-about fish and chips pop-up has turned into one of this summer’s hardest-to-get reservations. Dame, an English-rooted seafood restaurant from chef Ed Szymanski and co-owner Patricia Howard, opened its doors in June and customers have been pouring in ever since to try the team’s ever-evolving menu of playful seafood dishes. The fish and chips are still around, but they are now in good company among squid and shishito skewers, curried monkfish kebabs, and smoked whitefish croquettes. (Note: The restaurant is currently closed for a summer break until September 8.)

From the team behind East Village cocktail bar Mister Paradise, Electric Burrito is a tiny counter-service spot that focuses on variations of just one thing: the French fry-filled burritos of San Diego, California. And if the lines out the door are any indication, they’re doing that one thing very well. Start with the original California burrito, made with french fries, carne asada, and pico de gallo, slather on some of the complimentary creamy, zingy orange sauce, and wash it all down with one of the restaurant’s two housemade sodas.

A rare Manhattan Haitian restaurant, Rebel, joined the Lower East Side dining scene earlier this spring. Must-order dishes from the menu include lambi, or conch fricasseed in a garlic tomato sauce, and griot, with fatty chunks of pork that are boiled in a Seville orange marinade and then fried in a process that produces “flavorful and richly textured” meat, according to Eater critic Robert Sietsema.

New York, NY 10002

Samuel Clonts and Raymond Trinh have years of experience between the two of them at fine-dining establishments such as Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare and Bar Uchū. At the duo’s first joint restaurant opening, they’ve kept the tasting-menu format but have done away with the break-the-bank-account price tags. In the 40-seat main dining room, Clonts’ modern American menu is available only as a seven-course experience ($92). The latest version of the tasting kicks off with a creative play on the breakfast taco with the addition of ingredients like ajitama (a seasoned egg with a custardy yolk) and trout roe. Other seasonally driven dishes include smoked corn paired with razor clams and caviar; roasted tomato agnolotti; and baked alaska with strawberry and yuzu. In the adjoining bar area, where Trinh oversees the beverage side of the restaurant, the menu can be ordered a la carte at the U-shaped marble bar or others seats overlooking the open kitchen, which is anchored by a wood-fired oven left over from when Speedy Romeo occupied the Lower East Side space. An optional add-on of a caviar handroll ($55) nods to Clonts and Trinh’s previous time at Uchū.

Dustin Wilson, a former wine director at Eleven Madison Park, and Austin Johnson, a former chef at the one-Michelin-star Frenchie in Paris, took over a Tribeca townhouse this summer and converted it into One White Street, an upscale, three-story neighborhood restaurant that offers both a six-course tasting menu and an a la carte lineup that includes grilled scallop skewers and glazed potato gnocchi with sweet corn and oyster mushrooms. A good chunk of the produce for Johnson’s vegetable-laden menu come from the restaurant’s own farm in the Hudson Valley, which supplies One White Street with fresh crops of in-season veggies all year long.

New York, NY 10002

Dhamaka, the newest restaurant from hitmaking duo Chintan Pandya and Roni Mazumdar, focuses on regional, everyday Indian food that is still rare to find in the U.S. Dishes include doh khleh, a pork salad with lemon, cilantro, onion, and ginger, from the northeastern Indian state of Meghalaya; macher jhol, a spicy fish curry from the eastern Indian state of West Bengal, here prepared with baby shark; and paplet fry, a whole fried pomfret fish typically eaten in the western Indian state of Maharashtra.

New York, NY 10005

Perched on the top of a Financial District skyscraper, Saga is a rare NYC fine dining experience where customers can wine and dine while eye-level with passing helicopters. Chef James Kent and general manager Jeff Katz — industry veterans who built up a following with their neighborhood hit Crown Shy located on the ground floor of the same building — are now putting their own, slightly more relaxed spin on the rarified world of fine dining in NYC with an intimate restaurant that spills out onto jaw-dropping outdoor terraces. But the views aren’t the only selling point at Saga and its upper-level cocktail bar Overstory. The restaurant offers a $245-per-person tasting menu that nods to “the things that are really important to me, and that I’ve learned over my life,” chef Kent tells Eater, with courses taking cues from his Moroccan background and his childhood days spent fishing off of a Long Island houseboat.

Chef Andrew Carmellini of Locanda Verde and the Dutch fame is one of several boldfaced names opening up restaurants at the South Street Seaport. His latest debut, Carne Mare, is a swanky, downtown destination that crosses lines between an American steakhouse and a traditional Italian restaurant and ends up with a decadent menu of 45-day dry-aged porterhouse steaks, octopus carpaccio, smoke-roasted beet steaks, and caviar-topped mozzarella sticks. Don’t miss the gorgonzola wagyu strip steak, which Eater critic Ryan Sutton recently declared NYC’s next great steak.
