Estela

This newcomer to the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list is run by chef and owner Ignacio Mattos and wine director and co-owner Thomas Carter. Opened in 2013, their crowded and noisy Mediterranean-inspired bistro on Houston Street serves small tapas-like dishes made with market ingredients and Mediterranean twists. The relaxed vibe and brilliant wine list add to its draw. Served in an unfussy space with wooden floors, unadorned tables and simple furniture, the a la carte menu has fans raving about grapefruit sorbet with yogurt and Campari; a breakfast sandwich with egg, pancetta and avocado; mussel Escabeche on toast (lightly pickled mussels top char-grilled bread with cilantro jus); thick lamb ribs crisp and sticky with honey; and beef tartare with sunchokes.
