Looking for New York’s coolest eats in one location? You’ll find them at an art fair, of all places. Frieze New York, returning to the city’s Randall’s Island Park in Manhattan this May, has once again curated a can’t-miss collection of food and drink for visitors.
The new additions this year are Dimes, the tiny restaurant from Alissa Wagner and Sabrina De Sousa with the healthy-but-hearty menu, and Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream, the old-school scoop shop with new-school flavors. Parlor Coffee Roasters will be on premises for the first time, too. Chef Chris Bradley, formerly of Untitled and Gramercy Tavern, will helm the restaurant at the Frieze VIP Room. NeueHouse, the membership-only workspace in Manhattan, is hosting the VIP Room restaurant, bar, outdoor patio, and café.
Returning eateries will include:
Marlow & Sons, the Brooklyn restaurant, which will have a seated dining room on site, as well as a grab-and-go counter and bar;
Roberta’s, the Bushwick, Brooklyn, hot spot, which will be on premises offering up its famous pizzas.
