[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Nilou from Travel+ Leisure. And I'm Sarah.
The restaurant scene in New York is always evolving and
as New Yorkers we know it can tough to keep
up. These are a few of our favorite places to
eat in the city right now. Il Buco Alimentari e
Vineria's Feels like you stepped into a Roman bakery in
[UNKNOWN]. You can stop in for espressos and pastries in
the morning, or gather around their massive farm tables for
a multi course italian feast with friends. The wildly successful
Pok Pok in Portland Oregon has been transplanted to Brooklyn's
up and coming Columbia water front. It's amazing to see
the crowds of hipsters and in the know foodies who
are flocking to red hook for Andy Ricker's amazingly authentic
Spicy Thai cooking. New York city has been in the
midst of a Neapolitan pizza boomlet, and Keste in the
West Village is an amazing spot to get a taste.
They have more than 20 pizzas on the menu, and
their signature pie has the perfect combination of arugula Buffalo
mozzarella and prosciutto de parma. One of the toughest reservations
to score right now is Eleven Madison Park and with
good reason. Daniel Home is still beaming after nabbing the
Jamesford Foundation's award for Outstanding Chef. You can expect four-star
service But it's not stuffy. There's a lot of whimsy
in every dish, and the staff is young and energized,
and excited to be there. Marcus Samuelsson has made Harlem
a destination on New York's Foodie Map. At Red Rooster,
he serves multi cultural comfort food to a beautiful crowd,
straight out of Central Casting. Thanks so much for watching.
Save a bite for us.
