Cuisine:Nouveau American. Price: $$$. Location: .

New Yorkers can’t deny that when they find themselves stranded, hungry and thirsty on a random expanse of 10th Avenue, their first thought is: Is Cookshop around here? But Cookshop’s appeal is not just in its big-fish-small-pond location, the American seasonal food is always amazing and the atmosphere is sleek and fun. Make a Reservation.

“During fashion week, I find myself in and out of Cookshop non-stop for their fried Kale and deviled eggs.” – Anne Fulenwide (Editor-in-Chief, Marie Claire)
