The Spotted Pig, New York. This celebrity Big Apple gastropub – co-owned by Jay-Z, Bono and Mario Batali no less – gets a special mention for its bargain lunch and brunch dishes, the cheapest Michelin-starred eats in the US. A hit with homesick Brits and West Village hipsters, the varied menu of British and Italian dishes includes one of the best blue cheeseburgers in town, a selection of modern Mediterranean-inspired plates and old favourites such as devils on horseback.
