Narcissa, next to The Standard Hotel entrance in the East Village, is a charming neighborhood gem with lush garden patio helmed by Michelin-starred chef John Fraser. The New American menu focuses on local, seasonal ingredients in dishes off the rotisserie like roasted spiced swordfish with pickled green garlic, harissa-glaze braised lamb shoulder with cumin-scented polenta or carrot fries with creamy jalapeno dip. Drink offerings include global wines and house cocktails like the So Pretty Vodka Gimlet with lime, beach plum liqueur and basil.
