Danish chef Claus Meyer’s New York

When he’s not taking care of his own business, Claus Meyer loves hanging out at some of his competitors. Here are his New York faves. 

Arcade Bakery 

Some of the best bread and pastries in the city from a small retail bakery that’s hidden inside an office building in Tribeca. 

220 Church Street, Manhattan 

Ends Meat 

Butcher John Ratliff runs his whole-animal butchering program through which he does marvelous things to grass-fed animals from upstate New York. Try his sandwiches, his coppa and his bone broth.

254 36th St, Brooklyn

Italian food the New York way. Carbone has a great atmosphere and service, and the interior is like something out of The Godfather. A little over the top, but the way it should be and not like the tourist traps you’ll find in Little Italy. 

181 Thompson St, Manhattan

Momofuku Nishi

Super-cool Italian-Korean restaurant in our neighborhood, Chelsea, by David Chang. Try the miso Cacio e Pepe or the charred mackerel.

232 8th Ave, Manhattan 

Win Son

Taiwanese-American family-­style restaurant run by two friends in East Williamsburg.    Super vibrant and delicious.

159 Graham Ave, Brooklyn

Blue Hill Stone Barns Center 

To me, one of the five most interesting places to eat in the world right now. Mind-blowing hospitality, absolutely original food and Dan Barber is not in it to build his brand, but because he means what he is doing and he feels it.

630 Bedford Road, Pocantico Hills, Hudson Valley 


A natural wine bar and New American restaurant by the guys behind Contra, Fabian von Hauske and Jeremiah Stone. Laid back and really good.  

142 Orchard St, Manhattan

One of New York’s best craft beer bars that is run by Jeppe Bjergså, who’s also behind the Evil Twin brewery. 

615 Manhattan Ave, Brooklyn 


Expertly-made drinks in this cool, dark hidden bar that evokes a “prohibition era” ambiance. Live jazz on Mondays and Tuesdays.

9 Doyers St, Manhattan 


Llama Inn

Probably the best Peruvian food in the world outside of Peru.

50 Withers St, Brooklyn
