NYC Restaurants

Fatty Crab

Fatty Crab Malaysian | Upper West Side

2170 Broadway (at 77th St)


Notes: Casual, fun, affordable. Family-style Malaysian street food and great beers. Get your hands dirty and order the chili crab. The steamed pork buns are also delish. Convenient to the Beacon Theatre. 


Barbuto Rustic Italian | West Village

775 Washington St (bet Jane & 12th)


Notes: Casual, industrial atmosphere in a converted garage that used to sell Rolls Royces. Fresh, seasonal ingredients. Don’t miss the signature JW chicken with salsa verde or the potatoes with pecorino and rosemary. Noisy.


Balthazar Brasserie | SoHo

80 Spring St (bet B’way & Crosby)
