THE TOP 100 NEW YORK RESTAURANTS IN FILM
1
Saturday Night Fever Restaurant

Saturday Night Fever

Rating: 90% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Lenny's Pizza

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 1969 86th Street Get DirectionsWebsite: lennys86.com

FOR THE DISCO QUEEN

Picture it. You have a slice. She has a slice. Then just before she takes a bite you whisper in her ear: "More ranch?" Or something about how Travolta ate a pie here in bell-bottoms. Your call.

2
Royal Tenenbaums Restaurant

Royal Tenenbaums

Rating: 80% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Grand Prospect Hall

Rating: 3 YelpAddress: 263 Prospect Ave, Brooklyn Get DirectionsWebsite: grandprospect.com

FOR THE RESERVATION FOR 1,000

Sometimes you need a table for two. And sometimes you need a ballroom for 999 friends. If it's the latter then take over this opulent cathedral with chandeliers, gold staircases and, we assume, some handsome blue and red track suits approved by Chas Tenenbaum.

3
The Departed Restaurant

The Departed

Rating: 92% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Ferdinando's Focacceria

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 151 Union Street, Brooklyn Get DirectionsWebsite: ferdinandosfocacceria.com

FOR THE THERAPY SESSION

The Departed: based in Boston, however, Scorsese selected this century-old spot in Dumbo for Leo to unload his stress on his blond shrink. So it's great for you to unload your frustrations. By frustrations, we mean how she hogs the covers.

Junior's

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 386 Flatbush Avenue Extension Get DirectionsWebsite: juniorscheesecake.com

Delmonicos

Rating: 3.5 YelpAddress: 56 Beaver Street Get DirectionsWebsite: delmonicosrestaurantgroup.comReservations: OpenTable

The Odeon

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 145 West Broadway Get DirectionsWebsite: theodeonrestaurant.comReservations: OpenTable

Rating: 24% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Teddy's Bar

Rating: 3.5 YelpAddress: Berry Street, Brooklyn Get DirectionsWebsite: teddyswilliamsburg.com

FOR THE BREAK UP SPOT

This movie really pulled at the heart strings. It started with heart break and it started at this bar. Might as well start the "It's not you it's me" convo right here.

9
Newlyweds Restaurant

Newlyweds

Rating: 70% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes, Netflix

Walker's

Rating: 3.5 YelpAddress: 18 North Moore Street Get DirectionsWebsite: walkersnyc.com

FOR THE BEST DEAL IN TOWN

3 things: (1) Ed Burns has graced this establishment with his presence. (2) It's in Tribeca. (3) A juicy sirloin steak will only run you $14. We should have lead with that third one.

10
The Adjustment Bureau Restaurant

The Adjustment Bureau

Onieal's

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 174 Grand Street Get DirectionsWebsite: onieals.comReservations: OpenTable

FOR THE COSMO SPOT

This SoHo speakeasy is no stranger to the big screen. You might have seen it in Sex and the City or The Adjustment Bureau. More importantly, you might have seen one of their infamous cosmos. And that's all you need to know.

11
The Devil Wears Prada Restaurant

The Devil Wears Prada

Rating: 76% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes, Netflix

Bubby's

Rating: 3.5 YelpAddress: 120 Hudson Street Get DirectionsWebsite: bubbys.com

FOR THE SOUTHERN BELLE

This spot is oozing with southern charm. Also, pecan pies, fried chicken and BBQ ribs. As a bonus, you and your plus 1 can eat pancakes til 7am. Midnight brunch is a beautiful thing.

12

Unfaithful

Rating: 49% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Cafe Noir

Rating: 3.5 YelpAddress: 35 Lispenard Street Get DirectionsWebsite: cafenoirny.com

FOR THE WONDERING EYE

Warning: In this charming neighborhood spot, there may (or may not) be some tapas and some European men working that are not tough on the eyes. (Looking at you Diane Lane.) Damn those charming accents.

13
Godfather 3 Restaurant

Godfather 3

Rating: 68% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Mulberry Street Bar

Rating: 3 YelpAddress: 176 Mulberry Street Get DirectionsWebsite: facebook.com

FOR THE LITTLE ITALY GEM

This century-old watering hole has an impressive resume: Donnie Brasco, The Godfather, The Sopranos. To top it off, Mr. Frank Sinatra graced this place in Contract on Cherry Street. Just watch out for their karaoke nights (or any hired assassins.)

14
Newlyweds Restaurant

Newlyweds

Rating: 70% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes, Netflix

Ivy's Bistro

Rating: 3.5 YelpAddress: 385 Greenwich Street Get DirectionsWebsite: ivysbistro.comReservations: OpenTable

FOR THE SAFE BET

Some dates require a little more risk in the form of champagne sabers, helicopters and the occasional underground arm wrestling match. (And we wish you well on those.) For the safe bet, grab a two top table at this Tribeca spot for a fail safe meal of pâté and vino.

15
Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist Restaurant

Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist

Rating: 74% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Arlene's Grocery

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 95 Stanton Street Get DirectionsWebsite: arlenesgrocery.net

FOR THE CONCERT DATE

On the outside, it looks like an old beaten down red grocery story. On the inside, it's a bass bumping music hall with undiscovered NYC talent. Grab your date and head to the front of the stage. She'll love your electric guitar solo and your yellow Hugo car.

16
The Good Shepard Restaurant

The Good Shepard

Rating: 54% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Cafe De La Esquina

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 225 Wythe Avenue Get DirectionsWebsite: esquinabk.comReservations: OpenTable

FOR THE QUESO DATE

To be clear, this Brooklyn joint has had a makeover since Mr. Damon set foot in here. The old school Diner has been transformed into a swanky margarita and enchilada powerhouse. To guarantee success, order queso.

17
Something Borrowed Restaurant

Something Borrowed

Rating: (unrated)% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Spring Lounge

Rating: 3.5 YelpAddress: 48 Spring Street Get DirectionsWebsite: thespringlounge.com/

FOR CONFESSING YOUR LOVE

"I love you." Saying it can require courage, liquid courage. Enter this SoHo dive. Order a drink, grab a cozy booth and confess your feelings. Make it a double if Kate Hudson is already dating him.

18
When Harry Met Sally Restaurant

When Harry Met Sally

Rating: 88% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Katz's Delicatessen

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 205 E Houston Street Get DirectionsWebsite: katzsdelicatessen.com

FOR THE SCENE CAUSER

Okay, a deli on date night isn’t ideal. BLTs don’t scream romance. But let’s say your date has a thing for Nora Ephron. Then you have a decent shot at a reenactment of Meg Ryan’s finest scene. Maybe grab the check first.

19
Coyote Ugly Restaurant

Coyote Ugly

Rating: 22% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Bereket Turkish Kebab House

Rating: 3.5 YelpAddress: 187 E Houston Street Get DirectionsWebsite: facebook.com

FOR AFTER PARTY SNACK

On the outside, this looks like a worn down Turkish Kebab House. And that's exactly what it is. But if the Turks know one thing it's kebabs. Our recommendation: get it to go with extra napkins.

20
Big Daddy Restaurant

Big Daddy

Rating: 40% Rotten Tomatoes

Felix Restaurant

Rating: 3 YelpAddress: 340 West Broadway Get DirectionsWebsite: felixnyc.comReservations: OpenTable

FOR THE PIT STOP

At this French bistro, Sonny (Sandler) asks if Julian can use the bathroom. He gets a no but Julian uses the side door as his personal restroom. The door is now hidden behind garbage containers . . . probably a smart idea.

21
Hitch Restaurant

Hitch

Rating: 69% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Balthazar Restaurant

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 80 Spring Street Get DirectionsWebsite: balthazarny.comReservations: OpenTable

FOR THE TASTE OF PARIS

Let us rattle off the Parisian deliciousness you'll find here: Duck Shepperd's Pie, ramos gin fizz, seafood towers, chocolate bread. Yes, that's chocolate and bread together as last. Mr. Smith knew what he was doing.

22
Friends with Benefits Restaurant

Friends with Benefits

Rating: 70% Rotten Tomatoes

Cafe Habana

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 17 Prince Street Get DirectionsWebsite: cafehabana.com

FOR THE CASUAL DATE

Nothing says "I want to be more than friends" like a casually chic lunch spot with hot Cuban sandwiches. And if that special friend isn't interested, well, you always have the Mexican Firing Squad cocktail. It involves tequila and, sadly, no Mila Kunis.

23
Made Restaurant

Made

Cupping Room Cafe

Cafe Angelique

FOR THE LATTE DATE

Listening on a date. It's important. It's essential. It requires coffee. Enter this cozy West Village cafe. Order a cupcake, lean back and start taking mental notes. And if Billy Bob starts moving in on your crush, well, cupcakes are great for throwing.

26

200 Cigarettes

FOR THE LATE NIGHT POOL SHARK

We don't know when and we don't know why but one night you will need a pool table and you'll need it until 4am. Enter this East Village dive. Up next, a late night ping pong pub.

31

Sex and the City

Rating: 49% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Raoul's

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 180 Prince Street Get DirectionsWebsite: raouls.comReservations: OpenTable

FOR A LITTLE FRENCH CHARM

This low lit French bistro is full of vintage framed art. Translation: it's painfully charming. On top of that, the East Coast Halibut isn't bad either. Your date didn't stand a chance. (Just leave the streamers at home.)

32
The Wolf of Wall Street Restaurant

The Wolf of Wall Street

Rating: 77% Rotten Tomatoes

Shalimar Diner

Rating: 3.5 YelpAddress: 6368 Austin Street Get Directions

FOR THE MISTRESS BRUNCH

This place is no frills: worn down booths, missing ceiling tiles, an exterior that's worthy of a Denny's. But it's a classic and there's a 99% chance you won't bump into anyone you know. Plus, Leo had some eggs here. That counts for something.

33
Coyote Ugly Restaurant

Coyote Ugly

Rating: 22% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

Coyote Ugly

Rating: 2.5 YelpAddress: 153 First Avenue Get DirectionsWebsite: coyoteuglysaloon.com

FOR A ROWDY NIGHT OUT

Sophistication. This is something that will not be found at Coyote Ugly. But you will find girls dancing on the bar, shots of Wild Turkey and, just maybe, your own Tyra Banks. Disclaimer: that last one is a little harder than the others.

34
Rounders Restaurant

Rounders

Rating: 65% Rotten TomatoesWatch Movie: iTunes

McSorley's Old Ale House

Rating: 4 YelpAddress: 15 East 7th Street Get DirectionsWebsite: mcsorleysnewyork.com

FOR THE HISTORY BUFF

This isn't a dinner spot, unless you like crackers and cheese. But it is the oldest bar in New York and ideal for a casual post-dinner pint of light or dark. This pub is a risky move for a date but you're a betting man.

35

Lanza's

Rating: 3.5 YelpAddress: 168 1st Avenue Get DirectionsWebsite: lanzasrestaurant.com

The Central Bar

FOR THE GAME DAY DATE

If your date wants to add a little ESPN to your one on one time then go with this handsome sports bar. With nice leather booths and a massive oak bar, it looks more like a steakhouse than a sports house. It's ideal for a gameday date assuming your ex won't drop by.

FOR A SLICE OF PIZZA

To be clear: we don't recommend a slice of pizza on a date. But hey, it could happen. Plans change. If so, go with a spot that's been approved by Tobey Maguire (and his dashing red helmet.) Go ahead, toss in a side of Ranch.
