It's been over a year since we first started worrying about the fate of our favorite NYC haunts that were forced to close their doors in the wake of pandemic shutdowns and faced months of uncertainty. While, fortunately, many of the city's staples made their comeback early on, quite a few beloved bars and restaurants have left us wondering whether they'd ever reopen. Lucky for us (and every out and about New Yorker) these long-awaited hot spots are finally back in full swing. Reunited and it feels so good!
