Claro is one of the hottest and most exciting restaurants to open in New York in recent memory, which makes it perfect for impressing that certain someone. In 2018, they were awarded a Michelin star for their take on Oaxacan cuisine mixed with a refinement that's all NYC. The corn for Claro's menu comes from farms that hand-pick the non-GMO heirloom varieties, and the restaurant makes everything by hand, including the masa, cheeses and moles. The meats (chorizo, beef cheek, heritage pork rib) and produce (dandelion, spring onion) are local and organic, and the mezcal list is one of the best in town.
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: Claro's take on Oaxacan cuisine earned it a well-deserved Michelin star in 2018.
- Best for Brooklyn's Best Restaurants Because: It's hyper-focused on a specific regional cuisine of Mexico and it executes everything flawlessly.
- Recommended as Best Restaurants for Spring Because: It's a fresh take on Mexican cuisine in awesome digs with backyard seating.
- Best for Romantic Dining Because: It's one of the latest and greatest hotspots to hit NYC's dining scene.
