It's a quick transition from the lax days of summer to the non-stop schedule of NYFW. Managing a day’s worth of presentations and events can be stressful, but choosing somewhere to grab a bite should not. Consult our map for meals, cocktails and hangouts all over the city, highlighting limited-run pop-ups, classic favorites and brand new spots opening just in time for Fashion Week.
Casa Violeta at The Fat Radish
Fashion favorite Casa Violeta brings tropical vibes to LES, taking over The Fat Radish from September 6th through September 8th. Expect chef Alex Sala’s Italian and Mexican-inspired cuisine as the beachside design transports you to Tulum.
The Fat Radish
Fat Rice & The Ladies’ Room
Chefs Club New York is playing host to two must-try Chicago transplants. First, dig in at Fat Rice, helmed by 2018 James Beard Best Chef: Great Lakes Award winner Abe Conlon. Then, pop into The Ladies’ Room (situated in the private dining room) for speakeasy feels and upscale cocktails.
The Ladies' Room
Regroup from the fashion week chaos at west~bourne, a SoHo spot serving vegetarian eats (and West Coast vibes) all day.
This Roman-inspired trattoria recently opened in NoMad’s Evelyn Hotel. Rustic, authentic Italian dishes are served alongside an extensive wine and cocktail offering.
Brian Loiacono, formerly of Restaurant Daniel and DB Bistro Moderne, helms this new French bistro. The menu ranges from light bistro fare to classics like steak frites, so you can refuel as needed.
Bluebird London lands in NYC at the Time Warner Centre in Columbus Circle just in time for NYFW. They're bringing classics like the Bluebird Martini across the pond.
The New York EDITION
Enjoy a Michelin-starred meal at Clocktower in The New York EDITION. Have a fashion-forward nightcap at the lobby bar, where they serve The Classic, a cocktail paying homage to Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary.
Chinese Tuxedo and Peachy’s
Chinatown hotspot Chinese Tuxedo has always been a draw for its The New York Times two-star rating and former opera house digs. Now, guests can get their cocktail (and Instagram) fix at Peachy’s, the downstairs bar that's complete with a two-part beverage menu and maximalist decor (think: neon pink signs against Gucci wallpaper).
Playboy Club New York
Close out NYFW at the city’s newest spot: Playboy Club New York. Located just north of Hudson Yards, the iconic brand’s multi-concept venue will host its opening party on Wednesday, September 12.
