A Spoonful of Sofrito: New York’s Best Dining Neighborhoods!

A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.

New York’s Best Dining Neighborhoods!

Sofrito Lovers,

What is the best dining neighborhood of 2016?

I think this is an extremely difficult question to answer!  How can you possibly choose from all the amazing neighborhoods in this city? I can't answer this question! Well, the food critics from have definite answers to this query.

As you all know, I'm a huge fan!  I think their articles, reviews, restaurant lists, and other content is all brilliant, but I think they neglect Uptown Manhattan and the Bronx most of the time.  

If you check out their answers to the question posted above, they mostly answered: The Village, Lower East side, and Williamsburg! I think's critics need to ride the subway past 96th St. from time to time and check out the culinary meccas we have up here!

Despite my criticism,  I still love them!  Check out the post below and read their responses and restaurant recommendations.  Read and then go taste for yourself! ¡Buen Provecho!

New York’s Best Dining Neighborhoods

Williamsburg and the East Village had particularly good years


As is the tradition at Eater, our closeout of the year is a survey of friends, writers, and experts. This year, we asked the group eight questions running the gamut from meal of the year to top restaurant newcomers. Their answers will appear throughout the week. Responses are related in no particular order; all are cut, pasted, and (mostly) unedited herein. We've heard about the top standbys and the hot newcomers. Now it's time for the hottest dining neighborhoods. Please add your answers in the comments.

Amanda Kludt, Eater editor-in-chief: In the eight years I've filled out this survey, my neighborhood has never had restaurants that felt all that exciting. Even with the Tarlow empire, with the Luger standby, with Saltie and St. Anselm and The Commodore and my ever-favorite Bamonte's, they never seemed to stack up to what was happening elsewhere in any given year. But now we have all of those AND Lilia AND Barano AND Carms' perfectly whimsical Mister Dips and Leuca and Llama Inn and The Four Horseman and Emmy Squared. I'm interested to see how the scene fares when its main artery — the L train — is cut off in two years.
