Still the king of bistros, bustling (OK, loud ) Balthazar is never short of a discriminating mob. That’s all thanks to three winning details: its location in SoHo's shopping-spree heartland; the uplifting Paris-meets-NYC ambience; and, of course, the stellar something-for-everyone menu.

Highlights include the outstanding raw bar, steak frites, salade Niçoise, as well as the roasted beet salad. The kitchen stays open till 1am Friday and Saturday, and weekend brunch here is a very crowded (and delicious) production. For a decadent treat to go, grab a pastry from the Balthazar bakery next door.
