NYC Restaurants to try this Fall
The beginning of fall always feels like the start of a new year. Come September, we're storing our weekend getaway bags, refreshing our autumn wardrobes and getting back into a routine. While beach days are sadly behind us, it's exciting to spend more time in NYC to try new things — like fabulous restaurants! That's why we've put together a list of great restaurants, both old and new, to try out this fall.
Niche Niche (SoHo)
Attention all wine lovers! From the same team who created Tokyo Record Bar, this new spot on the corner of Macdougal Street is the ultimate dinner party. Each weeknight, the restaurant brings in a sommelier to curate the wine selection, which influences the menu. After dinner, head down to the jazz club in the basement, called "The Special Club."

Electric Lemon (Hudson Yards)
If you've been meaning to check out Hudson Yards, this restaurant is the perfect scene for lunch after you've climbed the vessel. Electric Lemon specializes in local farm-to-table ingredients, while offering epic city views from the 24th floor of the new Equinox hotel.

The Mark (Upper East Side)
At the Mark, world-renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten brings his eclectic palette to the Upper East Side. Located in the iconic Mark Hotel, this special spot is one of Ramy's all-time faves. The perfect place for a late lunch or a night cap, this is a must- visit!

Jeffrey's Grocery (West Village)
The influx of crisp air can only mean one thing: it's officially oyster season! Nestled on the cozy corner of Waverly Place, Jeffrey's Grocery is known best for its raw bar towers, yummy cocktails, and good vibes. Plus, they have a menu for literally any time of the day, including "after dinner" and "late night" (they're open until 1 am!)

Park Avenue Autumn (Midtown)
This Midtown staple is an oldie, but definitely a goodie. The modern menu changes with the seasons, along with the restaurant's decor. During September, October and November, Park Avenue Autumn is completely transformed into a fall foliage masterpiece.
