Sorry, guys: Turns out no one is getting naked in Cobble Hill.

  • Whiskied Away: Barley & Grain Open now

    There are over 100 Irish, Scottish, and American whiskies available at this new barstaurant (pictured), which serves cowboy steaks with tobacco-tinged onions, Wagyu burgers on pretzel buns, and a porterhouse for two.

    421 Amsterdam Ave. (W. 80th St.), Upper West Side (646-360-3231)

  • The Story of O: Maison O Open now

    This eccentric Japanese spot by Tadashi Ono does sushi, sashimi, and izakaya-style eats including lamb chops with green yuzu kosho, unagi pie, and braised pork belly. Beware of its trippy website.

    98 Kenmare St. (Cleveland Pl.), Nolita (212-274-9898)

  • 'Wich Doctors: Mayhem & Stout Open now

    These roving sandwich-makers have landed in Murray Hill, providing a cozy space to sit with your braised short-rib-and-brisket, pulled chicken, or lamb shoulder hero.

    711 2nd Ave. (E. 38th St.), Murray Hill (212-986-1600)

  • All in the Family: Enduro Open now

    This new modern American brasserie — opened by a member of the Junior's clan (dedicated to his grandfather and great-uncle) — steps away from the traditional cheesecake in favor of grilled lobster and kale-mushroom-barley salad.

    919 3rd Ave. (56th St.), Midtown (212-935-6800)

  • This Spud's for You: Potatopia Open now

    The single-serving restaurant trend is not dead, as evidenced by this menu dedicated to the humble potato: stuffed with cheese and bacon, smashed with green onions and garlic, or deep-fried to dip in truffle sauce.

    378 6th Ave. (Waverly Pl.), West Village (212-260-4100)
