Months ago, I was struggling to find recommendations for new, exciting restaurants near Lincoln Center.

Found inside the newly renovated David Geffen Hall, Tatiana comes from the New York-born chef Kwame Onwuachi and features cheffed-up takes on African-diaspora favorites like Jamaican patties (previous card) and braised oxtails. Our critic Pete Wells awarded the restaurant three stars this week.

Inside the Shops at Columbus Circle, you’ll find Bad Roman, a modern Italian restaurant from the team behind Don Angie and Smith & Wollensky. Get the crispy pepperoni cups with ranch and basil, and the truly excellent penne luongo alla Gricia. Finish with the lemon cheesecake.

A lobster that’s been split in half and filled with rice and garlic sits on a white platter next to pinto beans and tortillas.

Away from the hustle and bustle of Broadway, you’ll find El Fish Marisqueria, a new Mexican seafood restaurant on Amsterdam Avenue from the chef Julian Medina, of Toloache fame. The restaurant combines elements of Mexican and Asian cooking to great and delicious effect, like in this langosta Ensenada.
