1. Fraunces Tavern (1762)

 

Fraunces Tavern is the city’s oldest restaurant, with a history reaching back to 1762. The history of the building itself is a point of discussion. While the brick structure that would become the restaurant’s home dates from between 1719 and 1722, it has been rebuilt and modified numerous times, leading some to question whether it can truly claim to be as old and authentic as it claims.

 

Fraunces Tavern’s continued existence is truly a miracle of perseverance. Aside from the errant cannonball, the building has survived three fires and a bombing by a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization in 1975, which killed four persons inside. The museum that lies directly above the restaurant today tells the fascinating narrative of the eatery.

 

George Washington and the Sons of Liberty met here.

 

Type of Food: American (Traditional,) Bars, Breakfast and Lunch

 

Ear Inn 1817

2. Ear Inn (1817)

 

You’d never guess the story of the Ear Inn, which is tucked away on the far west side of Soho. Despite its long history, this quaint beer and burger business went by the name of “B” until the 1970s, when the owners covered the circular parts of the “B” with an illuminated “Bar” sign outside and the catchy name appeared.

 

In the early twentieth century, food and restaurant service became popular. The tavern was turned into a speakeasy during Prohibition and reopened to the public after the adoption of the 21st Amendment. The Ear Inn is a popular venue for a drink or a bite to eat, with nautical-themed decor and flowering flowerpots hanging outside. They’ve also established a “farm to table” philosophy, which means that even bar snacks are made using locally sourced ingredients.

 

Delmonicos 1837 before

3. Delmonico’s  (1837)

 

New York’s first steackhouse. Delmonico’s is the name of various New York City restaurants of varying duration, quality, and fame.

 

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Delmonico family managed one of the first and most famous iterations at 56 Beaver Street in Lower Manhattan, earning a reputation as one of the country’s finest fine dining establishments.

 

The restaurant is noted as being one of the first in the United States to enable customers to order from a menu à la carte rather than table d’hôte. It is also the birthplace of the widely imitated Delmonico steak. It is also considered to be the first restaurant to have its own wine selection.

 

Their 56 Beaver location is unfortunately temporarily closed, but you may order pickup or delivery from their location at 375 Lexington Avenue.

Welcome to Rezdora New York, Replay Listings’ selected Restaurant of the Month of June 2021.

 

Thanks to Rezdora, New Yorkers no longer need to travel to Italy to enjoy dishes that should be considered Italian treasures.

 

Rezdôra is a New York Times three-star restaurant from Chef Stefano Secchi and Partner David Switzer in New York City’s Flatiron neighborhood. The menu celebrates the cuisine of Emilia Romagna and is centered around house-made pasta, a nod to the restaurant’s name which translates to “head of household”-usually a nonna whom hand rolls pasta. Traditionally prepared meat, fish, local vegetables, and Northern Italian wines compliment the offerings.

 

Located at 27 East 20th Street, New York, NY 10003, Rezdora offers outdoor and indoor seating for foodies looking to taste their award-winning dishes. 

 

 

Our Experience

 

We had the pleasure of visiting Rezdora recently, and it was an absolute pleasure – both literally and figuratively. 

 

The service was outstanding, with industry experts constantly making sure the guests have the best experience.

 

We invited a couple of friends to make sure we could really experience multiple dishes on the menu. Our recommendation when visiting the restaurant is to do a “family-style” order so that all of the attendees may experience the joy of their dishes.  Feel free to ask their wine expert for a pairing recommendation.

 

General manager Sidonie Rodman offers some classic aperitivo cocktails at the bar, including the Negroni Sbagliato, featuring Campari, Torino sweet vermouth, and Franciacorta well as the Hugo with Prosecco, elderflower, mint, rosemary, and orange.

 

The most important thing is to book your visit weeks in advance. This restaurant has become increasingly popular, making it hard to find a reservation for the same day or sometimes even weeks.

Most Recent Testimonials from Google

 

“Pasta was very good and service was great, our waiter was very nice and informative. We got the pasta tasting and in my opinion, it was a waste of money. You get very VERY small portions and only 5 courses, dessert is not included. All of the dishes tasted very similar and overall we were pretty disappointed. The olive oil cake here is on another level, salty, a little sweet, and very savory. Very impressed with this dessert so much that we ordered a second one. If we visit again we will definitely order a la carte, I feel like that is the best bang for your buck here.”

“The food was good. The service was good. It was a little cheesy for my taste. Would have preferred less cheese. But the texture, taste, presentation was all on point. I thought the price was also reasonable as well.
