The lowdown

The chef behind Los Angeles breakfast-sandwich destination Eggslut has his first New York restaurant in the Usual. Located in the Nolitan Hotel, the dining room is airy and inflected with a California sensibility. The name of the game in the kitchen is, unsurprisingly, comfort food. The food isn’t totally straightforward, though, and so you’ll find a classic burger and fried chicken with house ranch alongside kimchi spaetzle and octopus with pozole verde.
