    Okay, I’m not a New Yorker, but I just had to put my 2 cents in – I’m guessing “Hell’s Kitchen” is one of the 5?

    My Zagat 2007 arrived yesterday. . . . the top 5 favorites are
    1. Grammercy Tavern
    2. Union Square Cafe
    3. Le Bernardin
    4. Babbo
    5. Peter Luger

    5 “hippest” I think is a matter of opinion. There is a list of ‘Trendy restaurants’ which is almost 100 restaurants long & alphabeticalized not rated 1 – whatever. Grammercy Tavern is listed under Trendy. Bobby Flay’s Bar Americain is listed as well. Daniel Boulud’s Bistro Moderne is listed & his food is ethereal.

    maybe be bop over to

    The Russian Tea Room (sadly its closed now)
    The 205 Bar
    Time Out New York Lounge

    Sorry if this offends, but those restaurants are probably the complete opposite of “hippest”!!! They are like NYC Classics that your parents would want to hang out at!


    Del Posto
    Spice Market
    Spotted Pig

    And by hippest, I mean place that are very hard to get into, places where all the young and hip celebrities hang out, and places with the well-know young and trendy chefs.
