The Best New Dishes To Try in NYC This June

With so many chefs and restaurant owners joining forces and adding new items to the menu, there’s always something new to try in this city. In the food and drink world, a new month marks new dishes – this is our guide to the best to try this month…

Black Seed Bagel - Daniel Humm collaboration

Black Seed

This month’s Black Seed collaboration is especially strong – the bagel shop has partnered with Eleven Madison Park and NoMad chef Daniel Humm. Named after its upcoming outpost at the Ace Hotel, The NoMad bagel is a celery seed bagel with black truffle cream cheese, pickled celery root, pickled shallots and thinly sliced celery. It’s fancy and priced accordingly at $16.50.

Manzo - restaurant


Eataly’s butcher restaurant Manzo welcomes chef Akshay Bhardwaj to serve a popular dish from his Indian restaurant Junoon. Using local ingredients, the pappardelle dish is made with ghost chili khorma, asparagus, and Norwich Meadows Farm scallions. Oh, and you’re eating for a good cause – a portion of the proceeds will go to Grow to Learn of Grow NYC.

The Sosta - Stacy's Summer Primavera

The Sosta

The Italian fast-casual eatery brings in chef-stylist and author Stacy London, celebrating summer with a refreshing pasta dish. Made with gamelli pasta, the “Stacy’s Summer Primavera” includes green beans, watermelon radish, zucchini, basil, oregano, cashew “ricotta” and lemon zest. For dessert – unrelated to the chef collaboration – there’s a special pride gelato, topped with rainbow cookies and sprinkles.

The Doughnut Project

New York’s beloved spots The Doughnut Project and Quality Meats join their forces, offering another playful item to add to your to-eat-list. Inspired by Quality Meats’ staple side dish, the new doughnut is filled with a corn custard filling and topped with brûléed sugar.

Mimi Cheng's Dumplings - bún chả dumplings

Mimi Cheng’s Dumplings

Instead of collaborating with a chef this month, Mimi Cheng’s partners with full-time travel blogger Patrick Janelle – who quit his job at Bon Appétit and pursued his passion – to create a special dumpling. Inspired by a recent trip to Vietnam and the traditional dish bún chả, this month’s dumpling features pasture-raised pork, cellophane noodles, wood ear mushrooms and carrots, while served with chili garlic nuoc cham dipping sauce. Just try it if you have no idea what you’ve just read.
