This Week


Hope your weekend was dandy, and you successfully avoided being mercilessly beaten by roving biker gangs.

  • Small Things: La Botaneria Open now
    This small bar by Fonda's Roberto Santibañez serves up botanas of Spanish charcuterie, meatballs with chopped egg, and charred eggplant dip to eat alongside its mostly South American wines and takes on classic cocktails.
    427B 7th Ave. (14th St.), Park Slope (347-987-3570)

  • Oy East: Solo Kosher Chinese Kitchen Open now
    The people who brought you Prime Ko (among other haute kosher spots) dig into Chinese at this new joint with versions of Americanized classics: chicken spring rolls, pan-seared beef dumplings, and General Tso’s chicken.
    550 Madison Ave. (E. 55th St.), Midtown (212-833-7800) 

  • Roll It Up: Taquitoria Open now
    Ex-Marc Forgione vets have opened this answer to your taquito dreams stuffed with local beef and Berkshire pork — oh, and they'll deliver big boxes with all the fixin's for your Sunday game day, too.
    168 Ludlow St. (Rivington St.), Lower East Side (212-780-0121)

  • We Would Walk: 1,200 Miles Open now
    That's apparently the distance between Paris and Algiers, from which this new Flatiron spot (pictured) takes inspiration with lamb tagine, house-made merguez, and roasted bone marrow with nutty dukkah spice.
    31 W. 21st St. (6th Ave.), Flatiron (212-510-8722)

  • Cocktail Peak: Bergen Hill Open now
    This new cocktail-driven spot lives in the old Bourgeois Pig home, and offers goat cheese toasts, a selection of seafood, and an "Ecuadorian Beer" cocktail that tangles pilsner with blanco tequila and something called "ceviche broth syrup."
    387 Court St. (1st Pl.), Carroll Gardens (718-858-5483)
