We've finally settled into fall and that means a slew of new restaurants in New York City.
Of course, not all restaurants are created equal.
Some restaurants are for Wall Street. And others are bar/restaurant/coffee shops by "Entourage" star Adrian Grenier, where you can eat candied bacon quinoa sushi or a taco churro cannoli.
You can see how there's a difference.
With that in mind Business Insider has put together a list of restaurants to serve the Street.
Some of them are in key locations like midtown Manhattan or the Financial District. Others look perfect for clients or a date night that will make you look in the know when it comes to the city's food scene.
You're welcome in advance.
Wall Street is often an endless parade of dinners and lunches by the office. The office is mostly in midtown, and midtown's food offerings are ... not always the most creative.
Plainly said, if you're not careful you can find yourself eating the same cut of steak three nights a week. After a time, this sounds better than it looks on you.
That is why so many people in New York City are excited that Chef Alex Stupak will be bringing his much-lauded Empellon brand to Midtown.
Stupak is known for high-end, creative Mexican fare, and once told Crain's New York that he approaches his food with a "punk-rock mentality."
That's definitely something midtown could use.
King — 18 King Street
King is one of those restaurants that just happen to be perfectly executed — fresh ingredients, wonderful recipes, and an experienced team.
Chefs Clare de Boer and Jess Shadbolt are veterans of London's legendary River Cafe, and news that they would be opening their own spot in New York City had this town's foodies talking before the first grill was fired.
The restaurant's menu changes daily (again, this about ingredient sourcing) so the fare is simple, based on cuisine from southern France and northern Italy.
Augustine —in the Beekman Hotel, 5 Beekman St.
Famed restaurateur Keith McNally is taking his considerable talents downtown to the Financial District, joining in the wave to revamp the neighborhood and covert it from food desert to food Mecca.
You know who Keith McNally is, by the way. He created Balthazar, Minetta Tavern, and Pastis, among other New York City restaurant classics.
Augustine, located in the Beekman Hotel, will be helmed by the chef in charge of McNally's Bowery restaurant, Cherche Midi. Expect big, fancy, French things.
