    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...

    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).

    (Lint Brush @ 02 Nov. 2004, 7:01) Ahh, the Royal Shave at Art of Shaving is a great NY experience. You literally look younger afterwards.

    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. [​IMG]

    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.

    I suggest not taking too many photos. Unless one has a classic rangefinder or twin lens. But be strategic.

    People always leave a bad impression constantly snapping away with small digital cameras.

    I can't believe no mention of stopping by the Alan Flusser Custom shop? For heaven's sake, stop by, have a drink and say hello to Mark Rykkien, who is managing the shop for Alan. AF is there often, you should really meet him in person. They are friendly, cordial gentlemen.

    And no sartorial visit to NYC is complete without a visit to the Polo Mansion at 72nd & Madison. Love him or hate him, Ralph Lauren has created a visual masterpiece at the Rhinelander Mansion. Make a stop there and al least look around at the architecture. It's new but beautiful.

    Forgot to mention that. I definitely want to stop by Alan Flusser, and I'd hoped to pass the RL Mansion while strolling down Madison Avenue. This is shaping up to be a great 2.5 days in the city, thanks to your advice.

    Now, if I can just keep the spending under control.....

    There is life below 23rd Street.
    The prices are lower and the women are hotter.

    Amen Shirtmaven... Though the prices in SoHo sure rival Madison anymore. I barely go above 23rd, except to Barney's and to drewl at Chrome Hearts. To each their own.

    HAHA.... the prices are lower.... and --- on average --- the women are indeed hotter (the address of nearly every model just haaaappens to be below 23rd... hmmm.... I'm moving...) Foxx, send me a pm if you'd like some company for that drink and cigar at Bar and Books, or wherever else, for that matter. I have some appointments Tuesday, but nothing too time consuming. Ooooh, and for a nice meal (dinner, ideally) try Barbaluc on 65th between Lex and Park. The people there are great, any veal special incredible, and the selection of wines is absurd. Oh, and if you'd like me to let them know you'll be coming by, um, I guess, send me a pm. [​IMG] In fact, I'm heading over there in a few for dinner. [​IMG]
