FiTR's NYC Neighborhood Dining Guide

On the Upper East Side, where can you drink a digestif out of this crazy glass, which seems bent on demonstrating a scientific principle?

Four years ago Fork in the Road inaugurated the Our 10 Best guides, and we've never looked back. They've proved so popular that readers have asked for some sort of index to the series. Well, here it is: a reverse-chronological list of the neighborhood-based guides, most in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Click on each headline and be magically transported to the corresponding 10 Best list. Sometimes, you even get 11, or 13. Note that the most elderly of these guides is around three years old, so check to make sure a particular place is still open before you go. And look for future indexes to guides based on a single foodstuff or dining concept.
