In a city full of skyscrapers, there are surprisingly few restaurants that boast a real birdseye view of New York. The most legendary, of course, was the Rainbow Room with its revolving dance floor, which closed in 2009. But just last year, a new restaurant opened...

Brandy's Piano Bar

Its 9:30 PM on East 54th Street: you can hear the tinkle of piano keys and someone singing Billy Joel. Follow the music down a set of stairs, through the swinging double doors of Bill’s — and back to a time when piano bars weren’t such a novelty in New York.

Food from the Kogi food truck.

What is it about gourmet food trucks that’s driving us all crazy with delight these days? Maybe it’s the hide-and-seek fun of tracking our favorites? Personally, I think it’s that we’re just so amazed how good food can come out of impossibly cramped, strictly utilitarian quarters. Whatever it is, the love affair is only heating up in Santa Monica...

For me and my fellow Argentines, empanadas are a comfort food. Savory turnovers typically stuffed with beef, chicken or vegetables, empanadas are what we make when we get the family all together. And every Argentinian family seems to have its own secret recipes, or little tricks to making them just right. But empanadas are not only homecooking...

What fortress on Park Avenue conceals 17 intact interiors from the 19th century? The Park Avenue Armory — a staunch, red brick “castle” that stretches from 66th to 67th Street...
