The West Side of Manhattan, devastated by the temporary closure of Broadway theaters, still boasts one of the city’s best homegrown restaurant communities. That community is Hell’s Kitchen, home to a breathtaking and affordable array of cuisines, including Peruvian, Haitian, Mexican, Japanese, Uzbek, Afghan, Thai, Cuban, and too many more to list. As certain swaths of Manhattan dining take on an increasingly uniform and corporate air, Hell’s Kitchen remains a haven for a wide variety of small and independent operators.

A number of New York restaurants have resumed outdoor and indoor dining services.
