DINNER (New and Hot)

Lola Traverna (6th Ave). Greek restaurant where you have to have the flaming cheese; it's a must!

DINNER (Classic and hard to book)

Carbone (Noho). Indulgent Italian. Expensive but very special and worth the experience.

Barbuto (Meatpacking District). Where the Kale Salad came from! The Roast chicken and budino are cult favourites.

Charlie Bird (Downtown). Great food and great music. Italian accented New American menu.

Where do we even begin with this!! Okay here we go....

Soho. Most the GREATS have a store here. Celine, Chanel, Loewe, Isabel Marant, Saint Laurent... the list goes on.

Goop (Bond St). Amazing selection of products and brands. Gwyneth lovers heaven.
