My 'to do list' for NYC trip next week - Page 2

Holland and Holland is closed?  I never had a chance to see it (although I know Saks carries some of their stuff); is the Beretta store worth seeing for the hunting and sporting inspired clothings, etc?
Yes, definitely check it out. It's right next to the Etro store, so take a look there too.

Don't waste your one lunch at Barney's. If you're determined to dine in a clothing store then go downstairs at Nicole Fahri. BUT, I agree with arvi; La Goulue is ground zero for the ladies who lunch. If $35 for a plate of pasta disturbs you then try my personal favorite..Nosidam...just a little bit up Madison. While around there, drop into Hermes and look at the belts. Beretta is worth a quick look. Have a ball.

There's lots of eye candy at Fred's (restaurant at Barneys). It's not the best food (think bird sized portions for their clientele) but I always stop in when I can...I agree that there are better lunch options if you are only here for a day.

Fred's at Barneys is like a hotel dining room..much better to eat at street level..Cafe Nosidam is great and much less snooty that La Goulue..also you can try Nello a few blocks uo from Barneys Another random thought:i don't advise a trip to Bloomingdales, but there is a new store that has opened nearby(60th & 3d ave)..Phils 1908...he carries a great line of suits,jackets & shirts all very much in the neopolitan style..his prices won't slay you like Kiton,Borrelli,ecc.

For lunch, you must try Aureole, across the street around the corner from Barneys. It has the best value. 4 courses tasting menu $35, $55 with matching wine. Or 3 courses prix fixe $20, $35 with wine, available after 2pm.

La Goulue it is....thanks for the tip, guys. From what I read, I hope I'm ok in diesel jeans, striped banana republic shirt, attolini suit jacket.

You may get an evil look from the person who greets you at the door.

Hmm, is that at lunch for Aureole? The Las Vegas branch has increased their prices to $69 for a 3 course meal and $99 for a 5 course tasting menu...

Yes, both of them are lunch menus. Here's $35 4-course tasting lunch menu: Hawaiian King Prawn ceviche,chayote squash,and green apple ***** Diver scallop 'a la nage', spaghetti squash and wood ears ***** Duo of veal tenderloin and cheeks, hedgehogs and risotto ***** AUREOLE DESSERTS The prices you cited must be for dinner menu.

Ahh, the Royal Shave at Art of Shaving is a great NY experience.  You literally look younger afterwards.
After the Royal Shave you should walk over to GCT and have a cocktail at the Campbell Apartment--if you like vintage dressy places. (I've seen nice looking women--probably from CT--there).

Yes, you are probably correct. Campbell Apt is highly overrated (dare I say tacky?) and has had several complaints of poor service, etc..... But it is very, VERY popular with the B&T crowd, in particular CT with its easy access from Grand Central. I'd avoid it.

Ah....sounds like it had better be the whole Attolini suit on Tuesday, for my culinary and imbibing adventures, rather than just the jacket with jeans. Mental note: carry store shopping bag at all times, so as not to be mistaken for a Bergdorf or Barneys employee. Hope I can find Lexington Bar and Books-- looking forward to cigars (one in a bar, one while strolling central park) in NYC.

Just look GOOD in your suit, and you can avoid being mistaken.

Arvi Is Via Quadronno between Madison and Fifth - it's very narrow, with a bar on your left as you enter, with a seating area at the back, with excellent sandwiches, mostly on a ham/cheese theme? If so, I concur in your view that it's a great espresso bar. One of the nice things about New York is that it can blend the American service culture with the best that Europe has to offer, so it can in a way be better than the European original. There is a French cafe on Lexington called Payard, that is similar, with wonderful chocolates. Lunch at Aureole looks like a steal. La Goulue is good for people watching. You might want to try Le Bilbouquet as well. There is also a restaurant on Lexinton called Orsay, which is good. I have heard it called Div-Orsay, because of the large number of blonde upper East side divorcees who lunch there.
