All crepes at this cute cafe in East Harlem are gluten free, from the classic suzette to a savory salmon and herbs option.
3. El Paso Restaurante Mexicano

4. The NoMad
The NoMad's bar is famous for exacting and complex drinks. At Panorama, the team will collaborate with LA's Houston Brothers to serve cocktails.
5. The Beatrice Inn
This clubby West Village restaurant is a fine choice for an after-work drink or date night dinner. The flaky meat pies on the menu are a must, and burger fans shouldn't miss the $52 dry-aged version with a duck egg and shaved black truffles.
Vegetables are finally getting their due in New York, as evidenced by new all-vegetarian restaurant Nix. The food is complemented by a strong drinks program at this NYU-area restaurant in a modern space.

7. Sushi Azabu
This subterranean sushi bar boasting a Michelin star has fish flown in from Japan five times a week. It's one of the city's essential sushi places.
8. American Cut
This restaurant from Marc Forgione and LDV Hospitality features an extensive menu of steaks and chops. The 20 oz pastrami-spiced bone-in ribeye was created as an homage to NYC.
At Khe-Yo, one of the first Laotian restaurants in NYC, diners can look forward to hands-on dining and shareable dishes. Watch now: Eater Video visits the South Asian spot for Lao New Year.
10. Pasquale Jones
Pasquale Jones is known for its wine list just as much as for the Italian food. Expect to see some sommelier-recommended rosé picks at Panorama.
New York, NY 10013
The Hong Kong waffle sundae is Summer 2016's most Instagram-worthy dessert. Toppings include condensed milk and Pocky.
12. Contra + Wildair
Sister restaurants on the Lower East Side, Contra and Wildair both deliver exciting menus with impressive natural wine and spirits selections. Dessert is not to be missed at either spot, either; Read the full review from Eater critic Ryan Sutton here.
13. The Black Ant + Temerario
As the name indicates, diners can find dishes like grasshopper tacos and tequila cocktails with ant salt at The Black Ant in the East Village. Sister restaurant Temerario offers street food-inspired fare in a fun setting.
14. PDT (Please Don't Tell)
One of the originators of the speakeasy revival, this little bar — accessible from behind a phone booth at East Village hot dog dive Crif Dogs — is still making some of the city's best cocktails.
Brooklyn, NY 11249
You've seen Dough doughnuts at coffee shops all over the city, and you can get them at Panorama as well. Creative flavors like hibiscus and passion fruit are the hallmark of this NYC favorite, especially at the Bed-Stuy home base.
16. OddFellows Ice Cream Co.
Daring flavors churned up in small batches get scooped into cones, spread between cookies, and sandwiched in warm brioche. There's an outpost in the East Village that focuses on the standout ice cream sandwiches.
17. Loosie Rouge
Draft cocktails and karaoke fuel the party at this New Orleans-inspired bar with a great patio in Williamsburg.
Also Featured in:
18. Bunk Sandwiches
Brooklyn residents were thrilled when this Portland import opened in Williamsburg last year. PNW ingredients like Oregon tuna and charcuterie from Olympia Provisions shine on the sandwich shop's menu.
19. Champion Coffee
Brooklyn, NY 11222
This charming cafe has a proprietary local roast and excels at iced drinks. Find beans to go around the city and get drinks to order — along with excellent service — in Greenpoint.
20. Roberta's Pizza
Great food and low-key ambiance have been the driving factors in this pizza joint's sustained success. Go for brunch to avoid the long waits and get one of the city's best bloody marys — or sit outside in the backyard and order from Roberta's to-go location next door.
