And there’s no better way to embrace the spirit of the season than with boozy holiday drinks. To help spread the joy, I tracked down some of best festive cocktails available now in New York City.

In the past year, thousands of restaurants opened in America—and Bon Appétit scoured the country in a coast-to-coast search to find their favorites. Drumroll, please… America’s Best New Restaurants of 2015 have just been revealed. And if this list doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t know what will.

The top 10 range from high-end city hot spots to casual Southern charmers, but the one thing they have in common is “that certain inexplicable feeling that one gets when dining out,” explains Bon Appétit Restaurant and Drinks Editor Andrew Knowlton. Really, it’s all about the entire experience—food, drinks, service, ambiance, and every delicious detail in between. Check out the full list of breakout spots here (including straight-off-the-menu recipes!) then start planning on your next culinary adventure. #BAhot10

It was another thrilling year for the New York City dining scene, and last night, Time Out New York held their annual industry awards honoring the best new restaurants, bars and chefs. “It’s been an incredibly exciting year for food and drink,” shares Mari Uyehara, TONY’s Food & Drink editor. “Sensational new restaurants opened on Madison Avenue and in the West Village, but also in Bushwick, Flushing and Red Hook. It also brought national superstars, celebrated cookbook authors and daring upstarts to town. Our roster of winners reflects the astonishing range of drinking and dining experiences in New York City right now.”

Taking over the spacious Stephen Weiss Studio, the 2013 Food & Drink Awards paid tribute to the city’s culinary finest in a grand celebration attended by top toques, restauranteurs, mixologists and industry insiders. Before the winners were announced, guests sampled bites from nominated spots, including L’Apicio, Pork Slope, Dear Bushwick and Gran Electrica, and sipped prosecco, Stella Artois and Frederick Wildman cocktails—all while eagerly anticipating the results.

TONY’s food-obsessed readers voted for their faves out of 40 nominees to determine ten winners in the Readers’ Choice categories—top honors included Best New Restaurant (The NoMad), Chef of the Year (Daniel Humm), Best New Italian Spot (Perla), Best New Cocktail Bar (Pouring Ribbons) and Best New Bakery (Ovenly). Additionally, ten Critics’ Picks were presented, in aptly named categories ranging from Best Big-Pimp’ Brooklyn (Blanca) and The New Nordic Wonder (Aska), to The Same Same But Different Award (Pok Pok NY) and The High Rolling Stoner Sushi Award (Chez Sardine). You can check out the full list of this year’s winners here.
