With so many opportunities to shine in this constantly morphing chameleon of a metropolis we call New York City – the list of things to do and see in this city are endless.
If you’re looking to explore the city and avoid those played out tourist attractions (I mean, how much Times Square can one tolerate?), then you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to show you the fruits of the city. Here’s what we’ve got on tap this week.
820 Washington St
New York, NY 10014
Recently opened under the experienced eyes of Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi, and Jeff Zalaznick—the three managing partners of Major Food Group (Parm, Carbone, ZZ’s Clam Bar)—Santina looks to turn the clock back on NYC coastal Italian food. It has an incredible menu, a killer location, and is getting a ton of buzz. Our can’t-miss dish? The 21-day-dry-aged T-bone, which plays homage to the meatpacker who once occupied the space.
Arrive hungry and indulge in some good eeeeats!

The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog
30 Water St
New York, NY 10004
Over the last decade, few bars have opened globally with as much buzz and media attention as New York City’s The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog. Founded by business partners Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon, The Dead Rabbit serves 72 expertly crafted cocktails via a menu that can easily be mistaken for a graphic novel. The menu features each style of cocktail alongside the emotional phases of John Morrissey’s life (John Morrissey aka the founder of the infamous Dead Rabbit street gang).
The bar releases only one annual menu, and their previous two menus are among the most highly coveted of any bar in the world.
Last week, three years since The Rabbit’s launch, the bar released its third drink compendium.
