TOP 5 NYC RESTAURANTS OR BARS:

Skinny Dennis for the drinks, live music seven days a week, Strong Island Iced Tea, and Uncle Willie’s Frozen Coffee (Bourbon, Brandy and Coffee Ice Cream).

Bistro Petit because it seats only 14 and the kobe burger, truffle mac and cheese, and mushroom risotto are all worth the wait.

Nom Wah Tea Parlor for authentic Chinese food in a beautiful, French bistro setting in Manhattan’s Chinatown.

Cafe Gitane at The Jane Hotel for brunch: a croissant and baked eggs with merguez sausage.

The Spotted Pig for dinner: the deviled egg, sheep’s milk ricotta gnudi with basil pesto, and the char-grilled burger with Roquefort and shoestring fries.
