Impress your crew with an order from the preeminent (and only) Ghanaian restaurant in town for shareable delights like jollof rice, fried whiting, and turkey wings and tails, along with classic soul food sides like mac and cheese, fried yams, and collard greens. And if you see the sometimes-on-the-menu oxtails, make sure to add that to the list. Wash it all down with ginger beer and sorrel.
Dining on authentic Shanghai cooking at your own home is possible — even if you’re not adept at cooking. Yaso Tangbao, which now has three locations in NYC, cooks up signature dishes ideal for kids and adults, like sweet and sour pork ribs, steamed or pan-fried bao buns with various fillings, and of course their namesake, gigantic yaso tangbao: soup-filled dumplings that will warm you from the inside out. Family dinner just got a lot more fun.
This NYC mini-chain is many New Yorkers’ go-to spot for comfy vibes and lots of veggie and health-focused shareable plates that won’t break the bank. Perfect for a post-spin class healthy lunch for you and your workout crew, Westville’s menu lets you choose from their long list of Market Sides — dozens of seasonal vegetables prepared in a variety of ways— and proteins like grilled salmon and skirt steak. And if you do want to indulge in mac and cheese and truffle fries … well, you earned it.
Hosting a Sunday bagel brunch with family, friends, and neighbors is a New York City tradition, and when you can get bagels and all the accessories delivered right to your door it makes it even easier. Black Seed’s bagels come to New York by way of Montreal and are consequently flatter and less chewy — no gigantic, fluffy carb-loaders here. Shmears range from classic veggie to tobiko to horseradish and there’s also a wide variety of sandwiches like a chopped cheese and a bagel with smoked trout, hard boiled egg, arugula, and mustard — as well as seven different types of egg and cheese sandwiches.
Having your neighbors over for a board game night? The best dishes are those easily shared, and chef and co-founder Eden Grinshpan delivers (literally!) with creamy dips, salads, and roasted vegetables served with fluffy pitas.

Seal the deal with some chocolate tahini walnut sea salt cookies and rose turmeric shortbread and at least you’ll be a winning host — even if you aren’t a Trivial Pursuit champion.

No need to brave long waits and shout over noisy fellow diners. Instead, have a romantic night in without lifting a finger. Impress your boo by ordering Italian specialties via Uber Eats from one of the chicest spots in the city, and you can dine on epicurean dishes like tuna carpaccio with artichokes and veal chop with roasted mushrooms. And don’t sleep on the pasta — the pasta alla Norma and gnochetti Sardi are persuasive arguments for never boiling spaghetti again.

If someone in your house is feeling under the weather, order one of the six varieties of ramen like gochujang pork, roasted ginger chicken, or vegan miso. Non-soup dishes include housemade mandu (dumplings with beef, pork, or glass noodles and tofu filling), rib-eye bulgogi, and bibimbap. Be sure to add on a side of Choi’s homemade kimchi, which comes in varieties like the classic Napa cabbage, daikon, and stewed bacon.
