Almost every single day a new establishment braves the Yelper-infested waters of our enormous sea of restaurants. But the fall in particular welcomes a vast list of noteworthy openings, from established emperors to newcomers hoping for their big break. Here's a few spots we'll be clamoring for a reservation at this season.

WHITE GOLD April Bloomfield's next newest offering, Salvation Burger, remains shuttered after a fire, but she's still forging ahead with this new bistro on the Upper West Side. There, she'll be doing whole animal preparations, courtesy of an in-house butcher program—which'll supply burger meat for her other operations—and a gourmet Chopped Cheese sandwich that's already garnered some scuttlebutt. Opening September at 375 Amsterdam Avenue

abcV Shooting off of the famous pea guacamole debate, Jean-Georges Vongerichten debuts an animal-free restaurant alongside his ABC Cocina inside ABC Carpet & Home. Instead of trying to "compensate" for the lack of meat, the chef will instead focus on highlighting the seasonal plant bounty. Opening September at 38 East 19th Street

UNNAMED PIZZA RESTAURANT BY KESTE TEAM Consistently making best of lists in NYC, Keste—the West Village pizzeria by Master Pizzaiolo Roberto Caporuscio—is about to have a younger sibling with a new Financial District restaurant and pizza school that's too new to be named. Together with his daughter and future son-in-law, Caporuscio will offer 20 different types of pizza and teach pizza-making classes to individuals and groups. Opening October at 77 Fulton Street

LEUCA and WESTLIGHT If you've taken a gander at the Williamsburg skyline of late, you may have noticed the incredibly tall building that looks like it's being supported by stilts. That's the William Vale hotel, and it's where chef-restaurateur Andrew Carmellini will be cooking the wood-fired coastal cuisine of Southern Italy (Leuca). Up on the 22nd floor, a rooftop bar (Westlight) with street food bar snacks, cocktails and "rare spirits." Opening October at 111 North 12th Street

RAMEN SHACK Keizo Shimamoto has been hard at work creating interesting ramen all over the city in the past few years, popping up at places like Smorgasburg and elsewhere.

You'll also be able to score the full roster of Shimamoto's proprietary Ramen Burgers. Opening week of September 26th at 13-13 40th Avenue in Long Island City

MAISON PICKLE The unstoppable brunch force Jacob's Pickles open their next great line-maker in the former Ouest space soon. They'll be doing a few riffs on the French Dip, plus cocktails. Opening September at 2315 Broadway

DRUNKEN DUMPLING Fans of xiao long bao take note of this new dumpling heaven by a former Joe's Shanghai chef. They'll have tons of different kinds of dumplings, but it's all about the soup dumpling, including a Stony Mountain Ranch pork version in an hour-boiled pork bone broth, and a Crab Meat Dumpling with hand-picked crab meat in pork bone broth. Opening September 14th at 137 1st Avenue

Expect some of the classic dishes, plus some new innovations now that they'll have a much larger kitchen. Opening October at 235 Park Avenue South

LALO Out of the karaoke ashes of Winnie's rises "hippie Chicano" with the next offering from Chef Gerado Gonzalez of El Rey Coffee Bar and Luncheonette on Stanton Street. Gonzalez will apparently be making his own tortillas and offering a vegan Caesar salad, among other playfully healthful options. Opening October at 104 Bayard Street

PHIL & ANNE'S GOOD TIME LOUNGE Anne Burrell, the spiky-haired chef you'll recognize if you watch anything on the Food Network, is launching her NYC restaurant this fall in Cobble Hill.

Opening September at 196 Smith Street

Proprietor Mak Kwai Pui will be bringing prawn dumplings, baked buns and other dim sum specialities in addition to "dishes appealing to American appetites, including 'high quality beef dishes.'" Opening October at 85 Fourth Avenue at 10th Street
