The 99 Essential Restaurants in Lower Manhattan
This week's Village Voice feature story answers the question many New Yorkers face every night: Where are we going to eat?
As a guide, we present 99 Essential Restaurants™ in Lower Manhattan, compiled by Voice food editor Laura Shunk, along with contributors Zachary Feldman, Tom Finkel, Caryn Ganeles, Jessica Lee, Scarlett Lindeman, Billy Lyons, Hannah Palmer Egan, Nicole Schnitzler, and Alanna Schubach.
This inaugural edition of 99 Essential Restaurants covers the seven square miles below 34th Street, down to Battery Park. Beyond that geographic constraint, our only eligibility requirement is that the restaurant has to have been open for business on January 1, 2013.
