This Week

Full_bouleybotanical

Wait. Was New Year's really a week ago already?

  • More Morini: Ristorante Morini Open now
     
    The indefatigable Michael White upgraded his Osteria Morini on the Upper East Side, serving fresh pastas, crudos, and mains of fennel-crusted tuna and dry-aged porterhouse.
     
    1167 Madison Ave. (E. 85th St.), Upper East Side (212-249-0444)

  • Home Style: North River Open now
     
    A Momofuku Ko vet puts his spin on down-home classics and comfort food, including deviled eggs, lobster toast, shrimp and grits, and fried chicken and biscuits.
     
    166 1st Ave. (E. 10th St.), East Village (212-228-1200)

  • Steak Out: Fogo de Chao Open now
     
    Midtown has a massive new Brazilian steakhouse serving 16 cuts of meat — filet mignon, beef ancho, linguica, picanha, and more — all served tableside on giant sword-like skewers.
     
    40 W. 53rd St. (6th Ave.), Midtown (212-969-9980)

  • Green Kitchen: Bouley Botanical Open now
     
    This new event space by David Bouley is unlike any other because it's also an experimental kitchen full of more than 400 edible plants (pictured), which should make the belated office holiday party quite interesting, indeed.
     
    163 Duane St. (Hudson St.), Tribeca (917-237-3205)

  • Pommes Away: La Frite Open now

     
    Yep, just fries. (Well, they do some beef sliders, too — but you're here for the frites.) This potato-focused place offers thin and thick cuts, and over a dozen sauces: harissa mayo, black truffle, sriracha ketchup, malt vinegar, you get the idea.
     
    99 Macdougal St. (Bleecker St.), West Village (917-388-2541)
