Torrisi Italian Specialties

One of our New Year's resolutions is to not be a repeat-offender at restaurants — that means breaking out of a restaurant rut and trying new places and new foods. Want to join us in our quest? Take a look at The Daily Meal Hot Lists for the newest and most popular eateries in 12 cities…

In New York, newcomer Torrisi Italian Specialties has been making waves, even with all of the upscale Italian restaurants that have opened recently.

In Boston, head to Eastern Standard Kitchen for their comfort food with European leanings.


Planning a long weekend in another city? For our Top Restaurants list, we've chosen some places that must be on any itinerary. Maybe there’s a dreaded work conference coming up; if you can sneak away for just one meal, choose one of the restaurants on our all-around best lists…

In Philadelphia, 10-year-old Vetri is still one of the city’s top restaurants, and Chef Marc Vetri’s Italian classics don’t seem to lose their luster.

In Seattle, we think Lark’s rustic, seasonal cuisine makes the restaurant one of the Pacific Northwest’s brightest stars.


With an eye towards frugality, we also compiled a list of great Cheap Eats that will allow you to dine on a dime whether traveling or on a day-to-day budget. Some are standard favorites that never get old, like In-N-Out, but others are amazing little holes in the wall that we’ve discovered for you…

In Los Angeles, you’re going to find some of the country’s best taco joints, like King Taco near Westlake.

In Chicago, hot dogs reign supreme, and you can’t go wrong with a pure beef Superdawg.
