On the restaurant side, Andrew and Mary Catherine Curren's casual French Arro gets a nod, as does Jesse Herman's Australian-style Thai at Sway. Buzziest of all buzzy new restaurants Qui was already confirmed for the restaurant list.
Qui is also one the magazine's top ten new bars, along with other East Sixth hotspot Whisler's. Right now just the list is online; the full "Where to Eat Now" issue hits the stands on Thursday.
