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.

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

Loi
208 W. 70th St., 212-875-8600
