The interior has European flair, coupled with the ambiance of a New York bakery & restaurant - it provides the ideal place to unwind or to pass through for a quick bite.
East Houston St & Bowery
BonMi provides the ultimate reprieve from those unabiding sandwich cravings. This fast-casual Vietnamese-inspired restaurant may specialize in Bahn Mi sandwiches, but they go above and beyond to develop Bahn Mi concepts that stray from the sandwich path - grab a Bahn Mi salad or summer role as well.
Wilson Ave & Schaefer St
Father Knows Best is kind of a breed all its own. Uniting the bar, restaurant and coffee house concepts - Father Knows Best emerges as a trifecta hybrid.

University Pl & East 10th St
Nix is the latest venture for Michelin-starred chef John Fraser. This time he is drawing from his own passion of cooking vegetables to create an inventive but casual American eatery.

Pinehurst Ave & West 187th St

Fulton Center at Broadway
Wasabi Sushi & Bento may have gained its claim to fame in the UK, where they have many locations, but this fast casual sushi-slinger is making a big splash on this side of the pond. More of a grab & go destination than your average sushi spot, Wasabi in the Fulton Center makes fresh sushi & bento boxes daily. These range from hot to cold options, and there are even juices & drinks. Bubble tea anyone? A commuter spot tailor made for the Financial District work force, don't be surprised by the swelling crowds.
3rd Ave & East 24th St
Natsumi's new Gramercy location is definitely an extension of the original, this time with the focus being on tapas. The dining experience is very much communal, with many plates being tailor made for sharing among friends, but there are some heftier options if you've got an appetite. Blending Japanese and Italian cuisines, there are some pretty inventive items to try - sashimi tacos anyone?
West 27th St & Ave of The Americas
Mulberry & Vine is a charming, casual eatery in the heart of Chelsea. The philosophy here is the one should be able to live life a bit dirty, but always eat fresh!

Christopher St & Hudson St
The Warren is a brand new West Village eatery, successfully creating an atmosphere that unites luxury & intimacy.

The menu is stocked with New American fare, and a raw bar makes this a great spot for sharing some apps!
10th Ave & West 41st
All new Hell's Kitchen spot with a potentially all-new concept. This restaurant uses the term "Middleterranean" to describe the cuisine.

The interior is warm & cozy by day with ample sunlight, but relaxes into dim serenity by the evening.
East 28th St & 5th Ave
Teisui intends to recreate the experience of a Japanese Ryokan* Hotel - the sister to this concept situated at the same latitude in Japan.

Did we mention it includes 10 courses?
Clinton St & Veranda Pl
Cafe Tekoa is nestled in to a residential oasis in the middle of Cobble Hill, just south of the Brooklyn Heights bustle.
