Third Time's a Charm: Bill's Bar and Burger Open now
This simple and streamlined chain welcomes a third NYC location in the Marriott Downtown, with more of its classic burgers (pictured), Buffalo wings, and malted shakes.
85 West St. (Carlisle St,), Financial District (212-894-3800)
Baguette Lucky: Maison Kayser Open now
The time to prep your beach bod is over, so you might as well carb-load at the first of several new locations for the French bakery, which puts out breads and bistro cuisine (roasted salmon, ratatouille) with a spacious outdoor garden area.

Not Your Mama's Chinese: Uncle Ted's Open now
This blindingly white restaurant sure doesn't look like your classic Americanized Chinese joint, nor does its food. Sure, there's honey spare ribs and scallion pancakes, but check out the braised duck dumplings and filet mignon egg rolls.
163 Bleecker St. (Sullivan St.), Greenwich Village (212-777-1395)
Italian Job: Il Salumaio Open now

1731 2nd Ave. (E. 89th St.), Upper East Side (646-852-6876)
Your New Healthy Lunch Spot: Nourish Kitchen + Table Open now
This takeaway shop, opened by a nutritionist, is all about seasonal and healthy eats. Don't worry, it's for omnivores: chimichurri steak sandwiches and lemon thyme pork tenderloin balance out the black quinoa and grilled romaine salad.
