British chef April Bloomfield launched the gastropub craze in New York City when she opened the Spotted Pig back in 2004. The Breslin, Bloomfield's meat-centric sequel in the Ace Hotel, moved the Anglo theme into hunting lodge territory when it opened in 2009 with woodsy knickknacks filling the dark bilevel space. There's often a long wait for a table (like the Spotted Pig, the Breslin does not take reservations), but you can head to the bar for fried lamb-belly scrumpets and a frosty pint of Spotted Pig Bitter. Dishes here are hearty, to say the least, including a gargantuan pig's foot for two that serves a minimum of four. If possible, save room at dessert for British boarding-school treats like the extra-gooey, sticky toffee pudding. Looking for something from the sea instead? Bloomfield also runs the hotel's John Dory Oyster Bar.—Jay Cheshes

Open daily 7 am to midnight.
