Mapping 20 of NYC's Most Underrated Restaurants

View as Map

On Friday, for a change of pace, we asked Eater readers to name the most underrated restaurants in New York, and both the comment section and the tipline were flooded with responses. There were little known restaurants, forgotten classics, spots that may have received attention at some point in the past but still never get the love they deserve. We sifted through the pile and chose our 20 favorites, mapped out below. A full list of the recommendations, with picks from publicists, owners, and workers at the restaurants hopefully culled out, will follow later today.
