East village: The moment we are convinced that there is no need for another European wine bar-restaurant in Manhattan, we are forced to make exceptions: Le Dive in Dimes Square was one, and Claude is the latest, although it looks like it won’t be the last. This East Village bar, below street level, hails from Joshua Pinsky and Chase Sinzer, two friends who met in the kitchen of Momofuku Ko with two Michelin stars. The pair look to Europe, and some of their favorite meals at home, for their menu of escargot croquettes, simply cooked fried chicken and devil’s pie for two. The wine cellar is home to some 1,000 bottles, but only 250 will appear at a time, allowing the team to alternate the list with the seasons. There are nearly 50 seats inside, with 17 seats at the bar reserved for walk-ins. 90 E. 10th Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues

Lower East Side: A new fast casual Chinese restaurant appears to have debuted in midtown Manhattan in June called Potluck Club.

The team launched in 2020 as a moon cake pop-up. Chrystie Street 133, between Broome and Delancey Streets

soho: Ah yes, just what the summer was missing: a TikToker-run ice cream parlor. The scoop spot in question is called Catch’n Ice Cream by Dylan Lemay, who tries to make a name for himself with little balls in the air. A rep tells Eater that attendees can expect ice cream balls such as cookie dough, Fruity Pebbles, and a vegan strawberry. Cakes and tarts served in a cup are available. If the interactivity is reminiscent of Coldstone Creamery’s heyday, it’s because Lemay is a former employee. 65 Bleecker Street, between Broadway and Crosby Street
