The Big Apple never stops producing amazing places to eat - here are some new favorites to try... 

There can scarcely be a more culturally diverse city than New York, and that very diversity means there is a huge selection of restaurants from all the cuisines of the world plus many that are purely American and still more that are a glorious fusion. 

And from this pick and mix of dining opportunities comes a regular menu of new restaurants opening, always in a bid to be the next big thing. There are around 27,000 eateries in New York City, so whether you are looking for a taste of home cooking or a fine-dining experience in a stunning setting, there will be a choice to suit every visitor.
