Spring has sprung in NYC and there are a slew of new places to celebrate the amazing weather. Full round-up is below.
Bellweather: Brought to you by the owners of Anella, Calyer, and Saint Vitus is this new American Nouveau eatery that features a menu of “raw-bar platters and dishes like baby artichokes with picholine olives and bottarga, tripe mole poblano with cracklings, and a BBQ black bass with cherry-tomato jam”. After the dishes are cleared off the table, and DJ takes over spinning into the night.

Cafe Mogador: Time Out New York says “The popular East Village Moroccan eatery opens a 75-seat outpost, outfitted with colorful tiles and reclaimed wood, in Williamsburg. A back herb garden growing rosemary, thyme and mint supplies the kitchen, which puts out signature dishes like a lamb tagine with dried apricots and prunes, a Greek salad crowned with za’atar croutons, and Middle Eastern eggs (tabouli, hummus, pita and chopped salad with eggs any style).”

Tradesman: Time Out New York says: “Antique tools decorate this Bushwick tavern, which also features rustic wood walls and a crosshatch-patterned floor in green, gray and white. Twelve taps dispense Northeast brews (Greenport Harbor, Kelso) at the 17-foot-long white oak bar, but drinkers can also sip on local hooch (Comb Honey Gin, Core Applejack) and classic cocktails.”
