Restaurant Guide

Welcome to New York City for ABCT's 50th Annual Convention! We hope that you will enjoy your visit to our wonderful city. We have put together a list of some of our favorite restaurants that may appeal to you during the conference. Because of the amazing food offerings in New York, it was impossible to come up with an exhaustive list. Please feel free to do your own research, and remember that new restaurants are opening all of the time. OpenTable, Yelp, and Thrillist are good websites to get recommendations and see restaurant reviews. Reservations are strongly encouraged, especially for Friday and Saturday nights. Many of these restaurants are booked weeks ahead of time.

We have organized our suggestions by neighborhood in Manhattan. If you have time, we strongly encourage you to venture away from Times Square. While Manhattan has more than enough restaurants to choose from, we also recommend checking out areas of other boroughs, such as Williamsburg, Brooklyn (the "hipster" area) and Astoria, Queens. We have listed some options for restaurants in those neighborhoods as well. Please let us know if you have any questions about where to eat or what to do.
