TABLE STAKES: JANUARY
To keep tabs on every New York restaurant and bar opening is folly. But to keep tabs on the most worthy? Yeoman’s work, and we’re proud to do it. Thus we present Table Stakes, a monthly rundown of the five (or so) must-know spots that have swung wide their doors in the past thirty (or so). Bon appétit.
Philippe Chow Downtown
You’re here because: You need to power lunch in the same neighborhood where you need post-nightclub eats.
You’re dining on: Beijing-inspired modern eats well-suited to impressing colleagues or potential one-night stands. You won’t have to think too much as they play the hits with dishes like elevated Chicken Satay, Salt and Pepper Lobster and a Peking Duck with a side of local DJ.
