This year’s AIA Conference on Architecture will be held in one of the design capitals of the world: New York City. With dozens of iconic buildings and many industry heavyweight firms, the city is a natural locale to celebrate architecture. Every weekday in June, ARCHITECT editors will be counting down the days until we see you in New York with suggestions of places to go and things to see.

Regarded as one of the world’s best food cities, New York has no shortage of restaurants, bakeries, bistros, and bars to choose from. Consider making a reservation at a recent James Beard Design Award–winning haunt. Our favorites include contemporary downtown eatery De Maria; 2017 Design Icon Award winner, Grand Central Oyster Bar and Kitchen; and 2016 winners Bruno Pizza, designed by Demian Repucci Design, and the Whitney Museum’s Untitled, a contemporary American restaurant designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop with Cooper Robertson. —Katharine Keane
