This Week

Full_mintons

Maybe you're kicking yourself for spending so much time waiting in line for cronuts this summer. At least you didn't spend $14K on a dozen of them.

  • Jazz Standard: Minton's Open now
     
    This old-school spot is the birthplace of bebop, now revitalized into a supper club (pictured) where men must where jackets to dine on smoked Berkshire pork chops and hoppin' john. Of course, there's live jazz, too.
     
    206 118th St. (St. Nicholas Ave.), Harlem (212-243-2222)

  • Park Picnic: Café Paulette Open now
     
    Channel France in Fort Greene Park on a fall afternoon at this new Brooklyn bistro serving roast beef tartine, pheasant pate, avocado toast, and a selection of French wines.
     
    136 DeKalb Ave. (S. Elliot Pl.), Fort Greene (718-694-2044)

  • Spice Market: Kokum Open now
     
    This new addition to Curry Hill brings the flavors of the Kerala region to NYC, offering red pumpkin cooked with jaggery, stir-fried jackfruit, and lamb chops cooked in a peppercorn-infused masala.
     
    106 Lexington Ave. (E. 27th St.), Kips Bay (212-684-6842)

  • Mr. Lonely: Wallflower Open now
     
    The former head bartender at Daniel opened this new cocktail-driven restaurant and bar, serving up black sea bass crudo and game-bird terrine. But the draw is the drinks, from a French take on a Moscow Mule to jalapeño-infused mezcal.
     
    235 W. 12th St. (Greenwich Ave.), West Village

  • Beer Here: The Jeffrey Open now
     
    Beneath the Queensboro Bridge lies this new beer bar, where 30 craft brews circulate through the custom tap system in the afternoon and evening, and espresso pumps out in the morning. You can get your growler filled here, too.
     
    311 E. 60th St. (2nd Ave.), Upper East Side (212-355-2337)
