At the Pebble Bar at Rock Center you can hobnob with fellow fashionistas why sipping on a sultry cocktail called Sins City while noshing on deviled eggs with chicken brittle and mushroom tart flambee.

At the stylish Nine Orchard Hotel step into chef Ignacio Mattos’ stunning cocktail bar called The Swan Room (top) with its vaulted ceilings and opulent, Old World charm.

See and be seen at 425, Jean-Georges’ new uptown escape. Start with Golden Osetra Caviar and Sauteed Langoustines before turning to land and sea options like steamed black bass and a Wagyu NY Strip.

Head higher at Manhatta, the sexy sky-high restaurant with panoramic views sixty stories above the city. Here cocktails come with names like Body Language and Mistakes Were Made. Aren’t they always.

Cucina Alba in the shadow of the High Line offers a stunning backdrop after a runway show bites from Chef Adam Leonti like black truffle agnolotti and a glass of wine from a 48-page wine list.
