Where to Eat and Drink During New York Fashion Week

September 04, 2018

Are you in town for New York Fashion Week (5-13 Sep) and wanting a slice of the stylista action? Simply nab a copy of the LUXE New York guide, then join industry insiders at one of these fashion-favoured wine n’ dine spots.

With runway shows slated for as early as 9am during this season’s schedule, you can bet your Louboutin’s that brunch is a non-negotiable part of any fashionista’s agenda. For prime people watching, diet-derailing baked goodies and an invigorating cup of Joe, Parisian bistro Lafayette ticks all the boxes.

If you’re looking to secure something for a little later in the day, it’s worth booking ahead for a perch at Dante, a buzzing Greenwich Village tapas bar that’s as famed for its tasty tidbits as for its stylish clientele. Choose from sourdough flatbreads and seafood pasta to flip-fresh fish, paired perfectly with one of the signature Negronis –considered among the best in town.

Casa Apicii is conveniently located but a stili’s toss away from Spring Studios and serves seasonal Mediterranean plates that draw foodies and fashionistas alike. If time’s on your side, take drinks upstairs at cosy Bar Fortuna before slinking down into the intimate 60-seat salon of gold velvet chairs and leather banquettes. Insta-snappers at the ready...

Of course, no Fashion Week frolic would be complete without a visit to perennial favourite The Polo Bar. Repping Ralph Lauren’s equestrian, East Coast chic, this dapper clubhouse is the go-to for hearty American cuisine and classic cocktails. While the decor sways sporty you’ll need to frock up for the occasion.
