View as Map

12008_10_hasmaps.jpgThere are many, many restaurants in New York where you need to make reservations weeks in advance, or wait in extremely long lines if you want a table. And then there are the restaurants on this list, which are basically impossible to get into, right now. Here's a map of New York's 12 toughest tables, with information about what you need to know if you want to lock down a reservation.

Dropped from last year's list: The Lion, Red Rooster, Il Mulino, Momofuku Ko, Minetta Tavern, La Esquina, Blue Hill at Stone Barns.

Heatseakers: Takashi, Del Posto, Brushstroke, Fedora, Rubirosa, Red Farm, The Dutch, Tertulia.
