The foodie promo ends March 7. Here’s why you should hit these spots before it’s too late.

Abboccato
136 W. 55th St., 212-265-4000
Because we’ve seen what new chef David Arias can do with pasta, and it’ll blow your mind.

Blue Smoke Battery Park City
255 Vesey St., 212-889-2005
Because you’ve already been to the Flatiron location; now you’ve gotta try Jeffrey Held’s take on barbecue.

Butter Midtown
70 W. 45th St., 212-253-2828
Because you can watch chef Alex Guarnaschelli on Chopped xx, or catch her in the flesh at the trendy outpost’s new location.

The Cecil
210 W. 118th St., 212-866-1262
Because Chef JJ Johnson is redefining African cuisine and bringing new business into Harlem.

The General
199 Bowery, 212-271-7101
Because your best chance of spotting a celeb in the city just might be at “Top Chef” alum Hung Huynh’s enticing Asian fusion eatery.

Kristalbelli
8 W. 36th St., 212-290-2211
Because this isn’t your neighborhood deli’s bibimbap.

Le Cirque
151 E. 58th St., 212-644-0202
Because when else can you afford dinner at Le Cirque?

Loi
208 W. 70th St., 212-875-8600
Because Greece’s most famous celeb chef, Maria Loi, will take care of you as if you were her own kin. Order the pastitsio, a Greek take on lasagna.

Stella 34
Macy’s Herald Square, 151 W. 34th St., 212-967-9251
Because the sprawling views of Herald Square are as divine as Jarett Appell’s pizza. Dining here will transform your typical Macy’s experience.
