Six Must-Try NYC Spots Picked by the Seated Community

When you’re ready to branch out from your usual favorite spots, it helps to have a restaurant recommendation from someone in the know.

We asked some of our top foodies in NYC to share their #1 picks—here are a few of their faves!


Cavatelli at Bottino

“It’s a beautiful and delicious restaurant for any occasion, from something special like a romantic date to friend get-togethers. I live farther away than I used to, but continue to go regularly for the great pastas, cocktails, and Seated Rewards! Definitely take all the recommendations from the staff. One of my favorite places.” – Dennis G.

Chai Thai Kitchen

Chiang Mai Noodles at Chai Thai Kitchen

“This place is a delicious option close to Times Square. I like their low-carb glass noodles, which you can substitute instead of rice. The flavor profiles of their entrees are amazing. It’s an absolute must!” – Star A.

Masseria dei Vini

Gnocchi Tarfuto at Masseria dei Vini

“Authentic Italian, cooked by actual Italians! Handmade pasta made from scratch every day, and a great wine list that isn’t overpriced. Casual enough for an everyday dinner, but nice enough for a special occasion.” – Spencer H.

San Matteo Pizzeria

Piadina at San Matteo Pizzeria

“They have incredible pizza—my favorite pizza by a long shot! And they always have impeccable service. Obsessed with this place!” – Alicia C.


The Burger at Rivercrest

“Their burger is one of the best I’ve ever eaten, and the chicken sandwiches are outstanding as well. My favorite add-on is the huge Bavarian salted pretzel with mustard and gouda cheese dip! Definitely worth ordering from or paying a visit.” – Barbara T.

New York Burger Co.
