189 by Dominique Ansel hits every mark on our must-have checklist. And that is no easy feat, for the record.

Serving up lunch, dinner and brunch, this exceptional restaurant knows exactly how to keep customers satisfied. Innovative ideas, high-quality ingredients and stand-out service. So grand. Oh and the décor is really something else. We are obsessed with the ultra-chic color scheme.

Their innovative dessert menu is a smashing success, too. Try the “Grilled Cheese” Cheesecake. (We weren’t immediately sold on the concept either, but it is utterly excellent, in actuality.)

The bakery is worth a visit as well, just as an aside!
