Sure, we’ve been eating this past year, from compostable takeout containers or huddled in curbside huts. But the true experience of dining out — the music, the crowds, the energy, the people-watching — has been... lacking.
No longer. The city is getting vaxxed, doors are opening, and dining out is decidedly back. So we teamed up with our friends at New York to highlight the restaurants that deserve your attention as you emerge from your pandemic cocoon. Consider it your post-vaccination guide to rediscovering the city’s dining scene — the hot new openings, of course, but also the pop-ups that are now permanent, the most impressive pivots, and more than a few stalwarts that have creatively evolved (long live the outdoor patios) this past year. These are the restaurants to hit right at this very moment. Start scrolling and planning, and explore more over at NYMag.com.

Please be aware of changing local rules, and check individual restaurant websites for any additional restrictions such as mask requirements. Find a local vaccination site here.Read More
