A new and buzzing Soho restaurant, with the preeminent chef Einat Admony (Taïm, Balaboosta, Bar Bolonat), serving up an eclectic mix of Israeli, Spanish, and North African cuisines. The menu is diverse and ever changing and includes dishes like salt cod doughnuts, haloumi with chimichurri, a fried eggplant tostada, and the amazing merguez burger.

Pizza Beach is practically an institution in Manhattan. It is a very affordable pizza joint, complete with thoroughly modern decor and very friendly staff. In addition to Neapolitan-style pies, the second outpost of Pizza Beach features a menu of Italian small plates by Eric Kleinman, formerly of dearly departed LES restaurant 'Inoteca. The dining room feels like a SoCal riff on Schiller's. The menu has a lot of vegetarian options, and the most expensive dish is $18.

Sadelle’s is a great Jewish bakery in Soho showcasing the very best of Jewish cuisine. Visit the front counter for fresh bagels, babka, and a selection of smoked fish. You can also sit down for dinner for smoked fish towers, towering sandwiches, and colossal salads. A perfect venue for lunch as well as for dinner.

Avant Garden is a super trendy and very beautiful vegan restaurant by the great Ravi DeRossi. Here you will find a great range of toasts, pasta with homemade sauces, salads, and roasted vegetable entrees. This place is worth going to just for their unique, ever changing take on toast. We love their tomato infused and smoked eggplant, olive and pickled shallot.

Tacombi Bleecker specialises in the very special cuisine of the Yucatan region of Mexico. The fabulous menu has eight types of tacos, including two "panuchos", which are made with lightly fried tortillas stuffed with Rancho Gordo beans. Tacombi Bleecker’s freshly made guacamole is absolutely superb and just so much better than anything shop bought.

Prepare to be totally stuffed when visiting Fuku+. In the heart of Midtown this quirky place offers some excellent comfort food that will take you back to childhood.
