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.

Night spots after dinner @ Babbo and ABC Kitchen?

From out of town visiting for the wknd.....We have reservations on Thurs & Fri night at ABC Kitchen & Babbo (10pm reso's), and are wondering what would be a hip, lounge-y type place to check out after dinner at these restaurants; anything nearby? Thanks

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?

Best farmers market for tourists?

Haha fair enough -- in terms of restaurants, we ate at Saam (at the Bazaar/SLS Hotel), Gjelina's, Pizzeria Mozza, and Cleo's. At the farmer's market, we tried mexican food at Loteria and at the Sunday market, we ate several different things - tacos, samosas, and Afghani food. All were delicious!

Thank you for all the recommendations - we got a chance to check out the Farmer's Market at 3rd/Fairfax and also the Sunday Hollywood farmer's market - and both were wonderful! Thanks again.

Please help: deciding on resto's for dinner - FRI & SAT - first time in LA

Thank you so much for the recommendation for Saam! We had an incredible dinner on Saturday night and the food and service was out of this world. We enjoyed a very lively night at the Bazaar afterwards.
We also enjoyed meals at Pizzeria Mozza, Gjelina, and Cleo's. Thank you again for all the recommendations, you guys rock!
