Casa de Cha da Boa Nova
review by Gabriella Opaz

As waves crash on the rocky shores of Leça de Palmeira, and gentle Atlantic winds carry salty aromas inside Casa de Chá da Boa Nova, the division between space and time dissolves. Famed Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza built the Boa Nova Tea House in 1963, and restored it 50 years ...Read the full review

Bellecour
review by Bill Ward

The menu at Bellecour would look right at home in Paris’s Marais neighborhood: foie gras au torchon with strawberries, grains of paradise and toasted brioche; soupe à l’oignon; moules frites with sauce marinière; and pommes de terre infused with the ...Read the full review

Xochi
review by Jamal Rayyis

In a luminous space in Houston’s new Marriott Marquis, Xochi is chef Hugo Ortega’s homage to Oaxaca. Ortega, who won the 2017 James Beard Award for Best Southwest Chef, puts the wood-burning horno to good use, turning out succulent roasted meat ...Read the full review

Villanelle
review by Deanna Gonnella

Precise, seasonally driven food is the name of the game at Villanelle, a new Greenwich Village spot just steps from the Union Square Greenmarket. The unassuming mushroom dish should be called “more mushrooms”—a hunk of meaty portobello suspended in ...Read the full review

At Torc, husband and wife duo Sean and Cynthia O’Toole offer the truffles and blue-chip wines of a fine-dining destination without the pomp and hush. Come for handmade pastas, locally raised heritage meats, and vegetable sides featuring produce grown ...Read the full review

Aldo Sohm Wine Bar
review by Tara Q. Thomas

The best post-theater option for great wine and a quick bite, thanks to Aldo Sohm’s ever-changing, far-ranging by-the-glass selection and the Austrian-accented charcuterie tower.

Charlie Bird
review by Alice Feiring

To cap off this bounty, there’s Charlie Bird, where Robert Bohr, sommelier to the rich and famous, is a partner. The list is comfortable, with a secret list somewhere if you ask (usually in the sommelier’s head). As you’d expect from Bohr, who often wears a ...Read the full review

El Quinto Piño
review by Tara Q. Thomas

Sherry, it turns out, is now big in the City, big enough to encourage Alex Raij and her husband Eder Montero, to take over EQP’s next-door space and insert a dining room. The restaurant, hidden behind the kitchen, ...Read the full review

Fung Tu
review by Tara Q. Thomas

Wilson Tang is the scion of Nom Wah, the long-running Chinatown tea parlor, and Fung Tu is his playground to explore the idea of “Chinese-American.” Chef Jonathan Wu creates brilliant, exciting collisions like ‘nduja spiced with Sichuan peppercorns or steamed buns with sweet potato stuffing. General manager Sophie Maarleveld ...Read the full review

Hearth
review by Joshua Greene

If you crave a bowl of broth on a winter’s night, there’s no warmer or more welcoming place to go than Hearth. And if that broth is made from seaweed, with shiitake and hijiki, ask Christine Wright for a glass of Manzanilla—the Maruja, from Bodegas Juan ...Read the full review

Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria
review by Tara Q. Thomas

Umbrian-born Roberto Paris started at Il Buco in 1997, helping Donna Lennard turn her NoHo antiques store-cum-café into a full-fledged restaurant. His wine list became as much a draw as the food, which launched chefs like Jody Williams and Ignacio Mattis to culinary fame. That restaurant is still very much ...Read the full review
