In its annual and authoritative Best of New York issue, New York Magazine this year selected a handful of local establishments to crown as Gotham’s “best,” in what was a very selective and highly edited “best of” list indeed. Top picks included a nod to Battersby on Smith Street for its kale salad as the best salad, (asking if the trendy green might be the new arugula), Smith Canteen for its fried chicken sandwich and Black Gold for best record shop.
