Trying the NY Times Best Restaurants of 2013

So, I’m no stranger to good food, of course, but this year I’m trying to get ahead of the game of New York City foodie game and hit all of the NY Times 10 Best Restaurants of 2013.

On Christmas 2013, the Times released it’s list.   The headline is a bit misleading, however, since the ten featured are not actually the ten best in NYC – they’re not even the ten best reviewed of the year.   But I assume they are actually the ten best new restaurants, as Pete Wells says:

This may be why some of the best new restaurants I reviewed this year came from chefs or owners who were relatively unknown, while established operators came up with places that weren’t quite convincing.

Sadly, I must say that I’ve only been to one of them on the list (which I’ll go to again).  Happily, that also means that I’ll have 9 new places to try!   I’ll be writing about each of them here.  As I post each one, they’ll be tagged with “NYTimesTopTen2013”, so you can access each of them here.

Stay tuned…
