As if there weren't already enough reasons to quit smoking, here's yet another.
Beer's Here: Flatiron Hall (pictured) Open now
We're never sad to see another beer hall open, and this Flatiron sister to Houston Hall is an old-timey den of booze and snacks. Chicken tikka masala wontons, pastrami spring rolls, and Maui fish tacos are all up for grabs.
38 W. 26th St. (6th Ave.), Flatiron (646-790-3200)
Shelf Life: Malt & Mash Open now
This new gastropub will relocate around the corner in the next several months, bringing its lamb burgers, mole shrimp, and foie-and-peanut-butter roulades with it.
53-61 Gansevoort St. (Washington St.), Meatpacking District (646-561-3931)
Upper Veg Side: The East Pole Open now
This brownstone restaurant is operated by the Fat Radish team, so no surprise seeing green stuff front-and-center in summer cucumbers with fried oysters, roasted tomato toasts, and a macrobiotic veggie plate.
133 E. 65th St. (Lexington Ave.), Upper East Side (212-249-2222)
Ice, Ice Baby: Skál Open now
This Icelandic spot follows the city's new Nordic trend, serving late season radishes with dried scallops and soured cream, duck wings with red seaweed and mussels, and a lamb saddle with grilled leeks for two.
37 Canal St. (Ludlow St.), Lower East Side (212-777-7518)
New Aged: Red Farm Steak Open now
While Red Farm undergoes a renovation, its downstairs space serves as a steak-centric 28-day pop-up with 40-day-aged prime strip, inside-out filet mignon buns, and foie gras tarts.
529 Hudson St. (Charles St.), Tribeca (212-792-9700)
