And grab some of the city’s best tacos in Williamsburg
Time Out #29 | Tuesday 20 October 2020
Your next restaurant bill may be a bit more expensive
Starting this week, there's another boost to help restaurants stay afloat: they can legally tack on a surcharge to your bill. (A new surcharge that 55 percent of you say you’re willing to pay.) Click through to find out what to look out for on your next bill.

Editors’ essentials
Will Gleason
The Pastéis De Nata from Joey Bats Café may be my favorite dessert in the city. (And appetizer. And entrée) If you don’t often make it downtown, you can now snag the treats at the new Queens Night Market outpost at Rockefeller Center.
Hit up The Lab, a intimate new cocktail lounge accessible through the back of the Nomad speakeasy Patent Pending for an unexpected night out. Try the Odd Love (Rye, Spanish Brandy, Patent Coffee, Cherry, Walnut, Absinthe).
You can stream one of last year’s best plays, Will Arbery’s Heroes of the Fourth Turning, for free on five different nights this week. You just have to reserve your ticket in advance. (No payment’s required, but donations are encouraged.)
