#2. Ai Fiori

Michael White's Southern French foray in the Setai hotel is the best new fine dining establishment since he opened Marea on Central Park South in 2009. It's White's most conservative spot, with little oily fish or offal to scare off the squeamish. And despite the recent departure of chef Chris Jaeckle, my meal here last week proved that Ai Fiori's truffle- studded fare is moving ever closer to four-star territory.
