Everywhere You Need to Eat in NYC Right Now

The gist: Walk one block over from the bustle of Vanderbilt Avenue in Prospect Heights and you’ll find the oasis that is Leland Eating & Drinking House. As industry veteran Randi Lee’s (Del Posto, Ruschmeyer’s in Montauk) first independent project that debuted just over a year ago, the spot that was formerly known as the Dean Street Tavern space has been transformed into a new neighborhood favorite with plenty of natural light and a modern aesthetic. In addition to the Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, an official takeout program of the lunch menu launches on February 2, and an onsite bakery offering whole loaves of sourdough, baguettes, seeded, and more on February 9.
The food: Mediterranean-inspired cuisine by chef Delfin Jaranilla (Fedora, Quality Eats) featuring nose-to-tail butchery and seasonal ingredients from local farms. Starters include Chicken Jook Porridge with egg, ginger, and scallions; Trout Rillette with fennel, mustard seeds, and potato chips; Anchovy Toast with pickled onion and citrus; Smoked Pollock Fritters with potato and horseradish tzatziki; and Charred Lemon-Skillet Mussels with toast. Mains include a Whole Fried Fish with fennel salad; 24-hour Dry-Aged Roasted Chicken with a salt-citrus brine; and a rendition of Pork & Beans comprised of a Grilled Pork Chop and gigante beans. Baked goods from head baker Angela Reid include Focaccia, Banana Quinoa Oat mini loaves, Zucchini Bread, and more.
