Romera, New York City
It's no secret that New Yorkers can be a little crazy sometimes. Thankfully, at the new Romera restaurant, the doctor is in as of today.
Neurologist turned star chef Miguel Sánchez Romera gets inside your brain at his eponymous restaurant in the Dream Downtown hotel with what he calls neurogastronomy. But fear not, his 12-course, $245 tasting menu isn't just foams and mirrors. Romera thinks about how diners experience food and is known for creating multisensory experiences. Here, you'll see that approach in everything from waters infused with greenmarket bounty to a fragrant herb garden that climbs a wall of the dining room. And all that indulgence? Low-cal! Just what the doctor ordered.
