Where to Eat This Weekend: Happy Holidays, Let’s Eat

Need a place to take the family? A place to escape the family? A last-minute reservation or just a strong drink? Don't worry. We've got your back.

This is a weird weekend to be dining out. Everyone out there needs something different. Some of you have family that you need to entertain. Others are getting together with friends you haven’t seen all year. You’ll need drinks (of course), and somewhere warm to curl up.

But don’t worry. If we’ve got anything here at Foobooz World HQ, it’s lists. And so, as this holiday weekend kicks off, that’s what we’re leaving you with — all the lists you could possibly need to find whatever it is you require in a restaurant.

So merry everything, gastronauts. We hope you all get what you wish for. And if you don’t, let’s start things off by finding somewhere to drink off the disappointment.

50 Best Bars

What happens when you gather together the opinions of all the best bartenders, all the best drunks and all the best booze writers you know, put ’em in a hat (or, in this case, a complicated algorithm) and see what pops out? You end up with a list that satisfies no one, pisses off everyone, and is the most accurate accounting of the best bars in this city by a long stretch. Need a place to drink this weekend? Any one of these joints will serve.
