New York's best new food is hidden in tiny sushi bars, a food court and a beer joint. Here, eight amazing new restaurants and three much-anticipated hotels.

Gotham West Market
In Midtown West, amid car dealerships, sits America's best new food court. Highlights: ramen from guru Ivan Orkin; a bacon board at The Cannibal; sandwiches from Court Street Grocers. 600 11th Ave.; gothamwestmarket.com

Hidden behind Brooklyn's beer-geek bar T0rst, this inspired, Scandi-accented spot offers a set menu of dishes like lamb with burnt hay and tongue salad, each paired with a different, mind-blowing beer. 615 Manhattan Ave.; luksusnyc.com

Mission Cantina
At his new Mexican spot, F&W Best New Chef 2013 Danny Bowien, known for his Sichuan peppercorn–spiced food, uses equally strong flavors in dishes like mole-spiced chicken wings. 172 Orchard St.; missioncantinanyc.com

At The Standard East Village, chef John Fraser installed three rotisseries. One spit holds sweet potatoes, to be doused with jerk vinaigrette; another, succulent baby chickens. 21 Cooper Sq.; narcissarestaurant.com

Joseph Ogrodnek and Walker Stern's Battersby is impossibly tiny. At the roomier Dover, more people can try the Brooklyn duo's great cooking (pork belly confited in duck fat with glazed Lady apples and beets). 412 Court St.; doverbrooklyn.com
