Girls wknd in Manhattan - restaurant/nightlife suggestions?

Thank you everybody! Santina is one I had pinned as well; thinking of trying it for lunch during our trip. The Dream hotel will be one of our night life stops at some point in the weekend; hence why I thought Tao would be a good choice since its right in a club and beside the Dream.
Easter Sunday brunch suggestions sound awesome! Keep the ideas rolling!

Girls wknd in Manhattan - restaurant/nightlife suggestions?

Thank you! This is super helpful.
What would you suggest for a Thurs night - ABC Cocina or LES - Beauty & Essex + perhaps Birds and Bubbles?
Fri night - we're meeting friends for dinner and they are taking care of the plans.
And for Sat - the only reason I thought Tao might be good is proximity to night life...
Any suggestions for a MUST HAVE Sunday brunch (keeping in mind it will be Easter Sunday too)?
Thx!

Girls wknd in Manhattan - restaurant/nightlife suggestions?

Thank you, Toro was one of the ones we were looking at. And sorry I should have clarified, dinner would be around 10-10:30pm. Any thoughts on the following:
-Tao Downtown
-ABC Cocina
-Beauty & Essex
Would this fit the bill for a "lively/fun" place for a girls night out?

Girls wknd in Manhattan - restaurant/nightlife suggestions?

We are a group of four best friends, mid-30's professional ladies meeting in NYC for a reunion weekend in April - kindly hoping you can help me in picking some great restaurants that we can dine at for late dinners (closer to 9-10pm)that are lively and are close by to lounges/areas we can dance and drink. We are staying in Chelsea, and are open to any suggestions! In past trips we've tried places like The Darby, Catch, Carbone, STK...Thanks in advance :)

Girls reunion wknd - need resto & nightlife recd'ns pls!

I should mention I've been to NYC several times, and some of the places we've already tried include: Spice Market, Buddakan, and La Esquina. We're looking for something similar in vibe, but perhaps new and happening right now?
Also - some of the other ladies aren't so well acquainted with NYC, so what would you suggest are must-try "restaurants of the moment"?

Girls reunion wknd - need resto & nightlife recd'ns pls!

We're a group of 4 mid-30ish ladies, professionals, and best friends reuniting in NYC for a girls weekend in April; we'll be staying in the Meatpacking District and are looking for some suggestions on happening/hot restaurants and lounges/bars/clubs for Friday and Saturday night. Something upscale and sophisticated as we're looking to treat ourselves. Thanks in advance :)

Dining and nightlife recommendations for downtown Chicago?

We've been to Chicago several times and are a early 30's professional couple looking to check out some new, happening restaurants that have a lively crowd and possible after-dinner scene. We don't mind spending for a nice evening out. Also any new or happening bar/lounge suggestions would be appreciated. We will be in town Sat-Tues.

I tried to open the Beauty & Essex site and it doesn't go beyond its logo; is it a bar? Can we get in there late (after midnight) just for drinks?

Need "beautiful place with good crowd" like Buddakan for out-of-town guest

I'm looking for some similar suggestions too -- we've been to Buddakan in the past though, and really enjoyed Spice Market and STK which have a similar vibe.

Thanks for replies so far. In the beginning stages of planning, but I've booked a 10:45pm dinner at Babbo and a 10:30 dinner at ABC Kitchen (that's all that these two places had available); a brunch at Stanton Social and still thinking about where to place Kin Shop in the itinerary - either a lunch or dinner?

Any thoughts? What are good places to hit up after dinner at Babbo or ABC? Thanks!

Food carts and street food festivals

Thanks so much for the info so far, we'll be in NYC towards the latter half of June.

I got a reservation at ABC Kitchen for 10:30 on a Friday night and I also have a lunch reso too -- what would you suggest is better? Is ABC Kitchen a place to hang out after dinner and is it lively?

How about Kin Shop? How is that at night (ambiance/atmosphere)?

Food carts and street food festivals

We're from Toronto and will be in NYC next month, and are looking to visit some amazing food carts or street vendors/markets that occur during the warmer months. Is Hestor Street fair or the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market worthwhile? We've been to the Halal cart at 53rd and 6th. Thanks in advance.

Dining and nightlife recommendations for Manhattan?

Last time we were in NYC, was back in September. I've booked lunch at ABC Kitchen and a dinner at Stanton Social. Thoughts?

We have a Scarpetta in Toronto now, any other suggestions? They don't necessarily have to be in Chelsea or Meatpacking, that's just where we've enjoyed the nightlife in prior trips.

Thanks in advance.

Just to get a sense of places we've been to in past trips (lunch/dinner/brunch), we've visited STK, La Esquina, Buddakan, Bar Americain, Balthazar, etc.

Any help would be appreciated?
