We Want to Know: What’s Your No. 1 New York City Restaurant?

This week, The New York Times restaurant critic, Pete Wells, has revisited his list of the 100 best restaurants in New York City, adding new places, dropping others and changing his rankings of many old favorites.

Read Pete Wells’s list of the 100 best restaurants in New York City in 2024.

We’re expecting a spirited response to his revisions — because, as the saying goes, “everyone’s a critic.” And that goes double for New Yorkers: When it comes to dining here, there aren’t just one or two sources for incredible Italian, Thai, Peruvian or Jamaican food; there are dozens or even hundreds. And not all are created equally.

With that in mind, we’re asking readers which places top their own New York City restaurant lists, and why. Is it a tiny French bistro you’ve frequented for 30 years? Or a neighborhood spot that has become part of your community? Your absolute favorite may have closed decades ago, but we’d still like to hear about it.

We’ll read every submission and contact you if we’re interested in publishing yours. We won’t publish any part of your submission without reaching out to you and hearing back. We also won’t use your contact information for any reason other than to follow up with you, nor will we share it outside our newsroom. Thanks!
