Restaurants That We Are Most Excited for in 2015
As spring nears, we want to take a look ahead as we are excited about a number of interesting, new restaurants, some in business already and some still in the works. With everything from vegetarian lunch spots to ramen shops, here are best new restaurants in New York City of 2015. Be prepared to add these to your to do list!
Goemon Curry – 29 Kenmare St
Goemon Curry is the next project of Chef Yoshihito Kira who is best known for creating Cocoron, which has the best soba noodles in New York City. As the name implies, Goemon Curry will specialize in Japanese curries which is certainly something a little different. The restaurant should open any day now so definitely keep an eye on it.
Dirt Candy – 86 Allen St
Dirt Candy is one of many small but popular restaurants that recently expanded. Dirt Candy has been proving that vegetarian cuisine doesn’t have to be bland and boring with dishes like spinach mille-feuilles and brussels sprout tacos.
Dimes Superette – 49 Canal St
Dimes is the go to spot for a tasty and healthy breakfast or lunch in the Lower East Side. It is super popular, but the original location is also super small. They finally are expanding to a new larger location.
Butter & Scotch – 818 Franklin Ave, Brooklyn
If cupcakes and cocktails interest you, you have to check out Butter & Scotch in Brooklyn. We tried their maple bacon cupcakes what felt like a long time ago at the Grub Street Food Festival and it was delicious!
Bark Hot Dogs – 55 Bleecker St & 474 Bergen St, Brooklyn
Bark Hot Dogs is a fast food joint with a modern twist in Park Slope and they are opening a new location in Greenwich Village. Items like the bacon-cheddar dog, crispy pork sandwich and chicken chorizo all sound amazing.
Bricolage – 162 Fifth Ave, Brooklyn
Bricolage is a modern Vietnamese restaurant also in Park Slope. There is a lot of excitement behind their debut but not much more is known at this time.
Ichiran is a Japanese ramen chain that was rumored to be opening a NYC location for years and it seems that 2015 will be the year that they finally set up shop. What is interesting about Ichiran is that they are known for their single person seating with booth-like seats with partitions so you can enjoy you ramen while taking a break from New York City’s busy pace.
Ganso Yaki – 515 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn
Ganso Yaki will focus on Japanese style grilled meats and street food, it is a spinoff of the ramen shop Ganso, one of the more popular ramen shops in Brooklyn. Ganso Yaki is expected to be opened in the fall.
Le District – 225 Liberty St
With the success of Chelsea Market and Hudson Eats, gourmet markets and food courts are the in thing as of late as they offer a ton of options for foodies in the city. Le District is the latest and it has been described as a French version of Eataly. It opens in late March and we can’t wait!
Ramen Lab – 70 Kenmare St
The experimental Ramen Lab finally opened in late 2014. Despite the menu only having two ramen choices to select, there is usually a line to get in but the scrumptious bowl of ramen is worth the wait.
