1. Tin Building by Jean-Georges

Set in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge, French chef and restaurant owner Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s 53,000-square-foot culinary marketplace consists of six full-service restaurants, four bars, six counters, retail, and private dining. The new concept in the historic Tin Building opened in late September and serves everything from early morning breakfast to post-dinner cocktails: Double Yolk (breakfast and lunch), T. Café (coffee and pastries), T. Brasserie (French brasserie), Fulton Fish Co. (seafood), Taquito (Mexican), Seeds & Weeds (vegan and vegetarian), House of the Red Pearl (Chinese inspired), Shikku (sushi and sake), Frenchman’s Dough (Italian with a twist), and a specialty sandwich and salad counter. Find the Tin Building at Pier 17 at the Seaport. 96 South St.

2. Lord’s

It’s all British fare at Lord’s, the sister restaurant to Greenwich Village’s British fish and chips spot, Dame. The eatery opened in early October, and prepares everything from curried lamb scotch egg to Welsh rarebit, cured duck breast, crispy pig’s head, and duck-stuffed cabbage. There’s also meat pies of the day, delicious desserts like pudding, trifle, sponge cake, and custard, and an impressive cocktail menu with drinks like the fig leaf martini, black currant and concord grape spritz, and tart vinegar rose shrub. 506 LaGuardia Pl.

3. S&P

The busy 40-foot lunch counter opened in late September after taking over the iconic Eisenberg’s sandwich shop just steps from the Flatiron Building. S&P slings all the classics you would expect from a busy lunch spot, from tuna melts to pastrami on rye, corned beef, BLTs, reubens, and peanut butter and bacon sandwiches. 174 5th Ave.

4. Veggie Grill

The vegan empire’s fast-casual chain opened its second NYC location in December, this time in Midtown. What makes this location so special, is that it's the first time the chain is putting all four of its plant-based concepts under one roof. You’ll find Veggie Grill, Más Veggies, Stand-Up Burgers, and Vegan Bowls for All in the Midtown space, serving up everything from a BLT Avocado Croissant to Japanese Katsu Sliders, Crispy Baja Fish Tacos, Crispy Poblano Chickin’ burritos, and a nutrient-packed Thai Coconut Curry Bowl. 1004 2nd Ave.

5. La Chilaquería

Build your own chilaquiles at Manhattan’s newest Mexican eatery. This spot has been generating a lot of buzz with its protein offerings of  fried eggs, chorizo, carne cecina (salted and dried beef), and chicharron prensado (pressed pork rind), among others. Top your fried tortilla with refried beans, cheese, crema, thinly sliced avocado, raw and pickled garnishes, and an array of red, green, and brown salsas. Besides over the 20 different ways to order chilaquiles (a traditional Mexican breakfast dish), La Chilaquería’s menu also has burritos, bowls, and tortas (Mexican sandwich). 139 W 28th St.
