New & Noteworthy

Halfway through summer (or so it feels), this may be the best time to try new restaurants as NYC tends to thin a bit.  Regarding this weekly list, I have added more current articles on the restaurants if available. Also, just a note that the restaurants may rotate in and out based on the pieces I read, i.e. something may look interesting but as the stories emerge after the opening, it may become less interesting and hence fall off the list, and vice versa. 

This week, Hutong opens in the old Le Cirque space.  On the site, the attire notes “Smart casual attire recommended. No jacket required.”

This weekly list is not comprehensive of every new place but a short alphabetized list of new places that I think are notable.  Restaurants that have been opened for more than three months will not be included.
