Anatoly and Rena Krishtul began fixing ceramics more than twenty years ago and now mend pieces for auction houses, galleries, and collectors. If necessary, they’ll form, fire, glaze, and paint a copy of, say, a figurine’s missing head. Recent projects have ranged from a small candle snuffer with a broken handle ($150, four weeks) to a shattered Han Dynasty horse ($3,500, twelve weeks).

Where can you find the city’s top dog groomer? Last-minute tailor? Beef tongue? We eat, drink, dance, shop, shvitz, and trampoline our way around the city, not to mention poll scores of in-the-know colleagues, hard-partying friends, opinionated family members, and, this year, a team of guest expert bloggers to bring you answers to all of the above questions, and hundreds more, in the form of our annual “Best of New York” issue.
