The New York Times
NYC’s restaurant scene is arguably the best in the world, and a new group of eateries is only adding to its appeal. While the city’s best restaurants were once relegated to various neighborhoods’ unofficial “restaurant rows,” as new areas come into fashion, restaurateurs are quickly snapping up real estate, hoping that their businesses will bloom. One of the most drastic changes has been the restaurant revolution in Battery Park City. A recent influx of new residential and commercial development has raised the area’s profile dramatically, bringing with it some of the culinary world’s premier talents. Whether you’re dining at industrial-chic South Street hotspot Industry Kitchen, perusing the French-inspired offerings at Brookfield Place’s Le District, or enjoying the latest creations from celebrity chef Andrew Carmellini, Lower Manhattan is quickly establishing itself as a first stop for foodies.
