Best Restaurants in New York

Great eating and great dining in New York

Per Se in New York City.

As noted in The Daily Meal's 101 Best Restaurants in America, "best restaurant" lists are tricky. That goes double, triple even in New York City. Gotham's natives are partiularly spoiled with an abundance of great restaurants. Come up with a list of New York's best restaurants and you immediately face a difficult question, how to represent all boroughs. One of the biggest restaurant stories in New York during recent memory is the brewing battle of Manhattan versus Brooklyn.

So any list is going to be contentious, OK. But what would some of the country's best restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and assorted bloggers come up with when presented with a selection of difficult choices? Among the 101 best restaurants in America The Daily Meal's panel picked 21 restaurants that are in New York. There's a full list of the restaurants below, but for details about them you'll want to click through the full slideshow.
