In the magazine this week, Adam Platt writes the 2010 Where to Eat guide: “Our annual compilation of everything that’s good to imbibe, gobble, and otherwise devour in the booming, buzzing, constantly evolving restaurant galaxy that is New York City.” Discover his favorite spots in categories like Hotel Chic, the Seafood Renaissance, and Bull-Market Italian. Platt anoints the year’s Best New Chefs and Restaurants, as well as Top Cocktails and Stellar Desserts. Our critic also shares his blacklist of Tiresome Trends. Finally, Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld slip in the opening of Torrisi Italian Specialties, where “both the concise menu and the grocery-style shelves will pay tribute to the American products co-owners (and Café Boulud alums) Rich Torrisi and Mario Carbone grew up on.”
