Don't let the name frighten you; it's merely a reference to the neighborhood in which this bar is located ("kills" means "creek" and "Dutch," of course, is a nod to the colonists of "New Amsterdam"). When it opened, it attracted only locals in the...

New York City's oldest beer garden laid its cornerstone more than 100 years ago, and it remains a popular destination for beer lovers of all ages. While it draws visitors year-round, its ample backyard is best enjoyed in warmer months, when a full...

Rooftop bars are the place to be during summer and fall, when the weather is perfect for al fresco drinking. Eataly's La Birreria, however, is good in all seasons, thanks to its retractable roof and heaters that make even the coldest winter...

Corner Bistro is one of those places that is in all the tour books yet stubbornly manages to remain a local hangout. This place is the definition of no frills: The decor has remained virtually unchanged since it opened in 1961, and the namesake...

Despite its unappealing name, Dead Rabbit is one of the most popular bars in all of New York City and has also charmed the judges behind the World's 50 Best Bars list, which listed it second in 2015. Drinks are served in two discrete spaces:...

"Why are so many people hanging out at this pawn shop?" you might think to yourself while walking along Essex Street on Manhattan's Lower East Side. But it's not the goods in this (working!) pawn shop that the hangers-about are interested in; it's...

City Winery is one of those rare places that does many things well. The fully-functioning winery is also an event venue that hosts live music performances as well as food and wine classes; plus, it serves food, too. The menu is...

Toby's Estate Coffee has several outposts around the city, but a favorite is their Flatiron Espresso bar on Fifth Avenue. In addition to being surrounded by plenty of shops (and a stone's throw from Eataly), it shares space with a branch of Strand...

New York isn't London, which is to say, it doesn't revere tea time, but that doesn't mean you can't find fabulous places where you can enjoy a full high tea. One of them is Mandarin Oriental's Lobby Lounge, which from the 35th floor overlooks...

Rooftop bars are a dime a dozen in New York and many of them offer great views of the city's skyscrapers. But none is taller than Bar 54, which sits atop the Hyatt Times Square on the 54th floor. There are aspects of the decor that scream "chain...

The fact that I ordered a spicy kale Caesar salad instead of something with toast, and a green juice instead of a coffee, is an example of the type of insane things a place as fresh and well put together as The Butcher’s Daughter will make you do....

Rare is the bar that can be all things to all people successfully, but so it is for Gallow Green. Located atop The McKittrick Hotel, the bar is a hot spot for weekend brunch, especially among art lovers who plan to gallery hop around the Chelsea...

For ages, Manhattan's Midtown East was a wasteland as far as great coffee was concerned, with options limited to drips from delis, Starbucks, or Dunkin' Donuts. Then Pennylane opened on an unassuming side street about a block from the United...
