Editor Picks: 3 Hot NYC Restaurants To Try This Week

Fancy a trip to the big apple for some culinary treasures?  Here are three great picks for NYC Restaurants this week from our editors:


La Mercerie

Located inside Roman and Williams Guild in Soho, La Mercerie by Chef Marie-Aude Rose (an alum of acclaimed Paris restaurant Spring) celebrates the thoughtful delight of everyday French cooking. The full café serves breakfast, an all-day menu, wine and craft cocktails. Delicious pastries and coffee will always be available at the grab and go counter.  This darling Soho cafe from Starr Restaurants (Upland, Le Coucou) is open all day, with French-skewing breakfast, lunch, and dinner from their acclaimed French chef.  La Mercerie’s biggest charm is its look; while it doubles as a restaurant and a showroom. Everything in the space (designed by stalwart Roman and Williams) is for sale! From the chairs to the plates, every detail is tres chic! The hottest place for the fashion-forward crowd, some of the musts include oysters, chicken soup, and ribeye with mushroom butter.

Flatiron’s new Made Hotel now houses the buzzy Ferris, a New American restaurant with lots of global influence from former Le Turtle executive chef Greg Proechel and Major Food Group vet Charles Seich, who’s leading operations. This New American, seasonal restaurant delivers absolute freshness out of their 44 west 29th street location (inside MADE, a new hotel in Nomad). The quaint restaurant offers a dynamic 40-seat dining room with an open kitchen and seating at the chef’s counter. Some of their clients’ favorites are the squid with fennel, ’nduja, and melon; duck breast with charred eggplant jam and rutabaga or their yummy charred broccolini with timur yogurt and cashew. Learn more. 


Legacy Records

Delicious Hospitality Group (the team behind NYC’s Charlie Bird and Pasquale Jones), is bringing their downtown expertise uptown by operating the hospitality component of a new residential building in NYC’s Hudson Yards neighborhood. The luxe Mediterranean restaurant on the far west side of Manhattan comes from the team behind Charlie Bird and has already proven to be a scene. Chef Ryan Hardy’s menu features his fresh, flavorful cuisine, inspired by Italy’s northern coasts. Arvid Rosengren, the reigning ‘Best Sommelier in the World’ leads the hospitality and wine team. And, master mixologist Jeff Bell has curated the cocktail program.

During the day, the restaurant hosts a cafe called Easy Victor with pastries and coffee; at night, chef Ryan Hardy’s menu of crudo, pasta, and dishes like duck for two rolls into the dining room for dinner. Drinks are prime here — big-name wine guys Robert Bohr, Grant Reynolds, and Arvid Rosengren are part of the project, as is PDT head bartender Jeff Bell — but the design is what really makes dining at Legacy Records an event.The restaurant, bar, and Henry Hall, the building they call home, were designed by San Francisco-based designer Ken Fulk. Fulk’s creation of iconic spaces draws inspiration from a variety of eras and places. The setting at Legacy Records is classic and simple with an understated elegance revealed through custom details and a fully formed aesthetic. Famously opulent Ken Fulk was in charge of the space, which is lush with royal emerald greens, golds, and mahogany. Learn More.
