This might surprise you, but we like lists. But what we like even more than lists are lists OF OTHER LISTS. So we made one of those: here's a rundown of our favorite New York lists that we didn't write in 2014 -- some useful, some interesting, and some BOTH. SON.
New York Times Lest you think listing is below the denizens of the Grey Lady’s ivory towers, it’s not -- first of all, they’ve been doing it since 1976, and second, they actually had a couple of good ones this year. But this was our favorite, because we like a good glass of wine, they call out some of our favorite restaurants, and we love a good surprise (unless it involves a clown -- then we hate it).

First We Feast We like this whole series actually, but we like this one because portions of it could theoretically be turned into a pretty outstanding food crawl. Also, bonus mention for the too-long-to-be-a-list-but-still-great guide to where Patrick Bateman would probably eat in 2014.
Eater We’re pretty much always raving about how much we love burgers here, and this is a great compilation of where to get those funky, meaty, dry-aged versions of them that hold a very special place in our beating-slower-than-normal hearts.
Zagat We’re on board with all these up-and-comers, plus, a few years ago we went to the 30 Under 30 party and played Champagne beer pong with Eddie Huang, and he has a TV show based off of his life now.
Supercompressor Our brother site has built a pretty great list of apps to make sure you pretty much don’t have to do anything for yourself ever again. Click it, then sit back and watch the clean laundry roll in.
