  1. SriPraPhai

    SriPraPhai

    64-13 39th Ave., Queens, NY 11377

    Thai food is not particularly hard to find in New York. Every neighborhood in every borough seems to have a handful of local joints that serve up delivery staple curries, noodles, and spring rolls. Good Thai food, on the other hand, requires some digging. Thai food worth getting up off the couch? Not as easy […]

  2. Frankies 457

    Frankies (457) Spuntino

    457 Court St., Brooklyn, NY 11231

    Not that Frankies needs another glowing review, but this really is a fantastic restaurant if you can manage to get a table. It’s a tiny, cozy joint with simple Italian cooking, and the food is pretty damn great.

    Pok Pok Ny

    127 Columbia St., Brooklyn, NY 11231

    We don’t have a ton of Thai reviews on Immaculate Infatuation because, inevitably, there aren’t that many Thai spots worth dedicating a full review to. We all have our favorite work (Topaz), Chinatown (Pongsri) and Hell’s Kitchen (Wondee Siam) quick hitter/delivery spots, but if we closed our eyes and did a taste test, who can […]

    Marco & Pepe

    289 Grove Street, Jersey City, New Jersey 07302

    Ladies and gentlemen, Jersey City has arrived. If you don’t know much about it, not a problem. Allow us to quickly bring you up to speed. Jersey City is the largest city in the state of New Jersey, was the birthplace to both Martha Stewart and Beetlejuice (Howard Stern’s, not Michael Keaton’s), and is currently […]

  6. Frank
    8.0

    Frank

    88 2nd Ave., East Village, NY 10003

    Frank has been serving hungry hipsters in this hood for years now and doing it with their own DIY “we do it our way” attitude. The food is consistently solid, though a little underwhelming at times, but you come back regardless because it’s places like this that make the East Village one of the greatest neighborhoods in the world.

  7. Red_Hat
    8.0

    Red Hat

    1 Bridge Street, Westchester, NY 10533

    Once the weather turns warm, getting out of the city is a necessity. Here’s a good idea for a day trip – lunch at Red Hat in Irvington. Located on the Hudson River, close to the Tappen Zee Bridge, the view, with the faint outline of the NYC skyline visible looking south and bridge upon […]

  8. ThePines
    8.0

    The Pines

    284 3rd Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11215

    Don’t get too excited – this restaurant has nothing to do with The Pines of Fire Island. Keep that in mind before you decide to show up in a speedo looking for a party. The Pines of Gowanus is actually a new restaurant from the team behind Littleneck, the beloved clam shack just a few […]

  9. Zack's Oak Bar - Hoboken, NJ - Immaculate Infatuation
    8.0

    Zack’s Oak Bar and Restaurant

    232 Willow Avenue, Hoboken, New Jersey 07030

    Every neighborhood needs a solid neighborhood hang, and for everyone here in the Immaculate Infatuation New Jersey office (me), that hang is Zack’s Oak Bar and Restaurant. For years now, Zack’s has dutifully served as our go-to spot for a wide variety of eating and drinking-related activities in Hoboken, and we can proudly say that […]

  10. The East Pole
    8.0

    The East Pole

    133 E. 65th St., Upper East Side, NY 10065

    Something is happening to the East 60s. It’s as if the neighborhood is stirring, slowly waking up from a deep sleep that it’s been in since, well, the ’60s. Here’s a little bit of history for you. Did you know that this part of town used to be home to the hottest singles scene in […]
