At Omar's La Ranita, located in Greenwich Village, you'll find what's referred to as new American cuisine with seasonal and local ingredients. And it's not just a restaurant and bar; there's also a members-only dining club.

The man behind Omar's La Ranita is Omar Hernandez, formerly of the Standard hotel and the Lion, so one can assume that this new project will attract more than a few A-list stars.

The interior design is strikingly masculine, with a dark wood floor, leather banquettes, and a long, white marble bar. The atmosphere is tinged with flirtation. Celebrity-regulars include supermodels Marina Linchuk and Irina Shayk, as well as blogger Bryan Boy, who you might spot hanging out with friends during Fashion Week.

Chef Kenny Cuomo, whose résumé includes the excellent Per Se in Columbus Circle, runs the kitchen, preparing new American cuisine with Mediterranean flourishes.

We recommend: Curry striped bass; potatoes with cheddar and Fresno peppers; gnocchi with parmesan; hen of the woods with broccoli rabe and dijon. Another option is the "spontaneous" dégustation menu.

Cuisine: new American/Mediterranean

Atmosphere: trendy

The Crowd: famous models and bloggers, businessmen, people from the fashion world
