The Nolitan Hotel’s swanky new nightlife destination, Ellabess, is all about sophistication. Featured on the menu at the seasonal American bistro this fall is duck breast with roasted butternut squash, smoked bacon and braised red cabbage. And for dessert? Try the pear tatin (pictured).
For the start of autumn, this Midtown West classic will offer a new, three-course prix fixe lunch menu which will include goat cheese salad, baked eggplant bruschetta, and tortelloni with pumpkin – a large tortellini stuffed with pumpkin and spices in a sage butter sauce.

When Brooklyn’s insanely popular Fatty Cue opened an additional location in the West Village, we named it one of the Best New Cocktail Bars in the city – but the drinks aren’t the only thing worth tasting. Highlights from the Southeast Asian menu include buttermilk fried 1/2 rabbit (cincalok marinade, green chili-lemon shaker), 1/2 pound deep-fried bacon, and Issan-Style Duck Laab.

Another name featured on our Best New Cocktail Bars feature, menu highlights from this new West Village restaurant include a Charred Mackerel with caramelized onions, carta musica and Aioli & Castelvetrano olives. To match the Italian cuisine, the menu offers pitchers of seasonal aperitvo-style drinks such as the Basilico Spritzer (basil-infused extra-dry vermouth, St. Germain and prosecco) or the Aperol Cooler (Aperol, Limoncello, lime juice, orange juice and soda), serving six for $36.
