Restaurant Mirazur at Spring Place at 6 Saint Johns Lane

For three nights only, the cuisine of Mirazur is on display at Spring Place during a special Fashion Week pop-up. The French restaurant has three Michelin stars and was named the best restaurant of 2019 by the World’s Best Restaurant list, so this culinary event featuring Chef Mauro Colagreco is a must-do. Dinners are taking place on February 10, 11, and 12 during the residency. Reserve your spot here.

Anna Sui’s exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design is closing at the end of the month, and a special Fashion Week event is an ideal time to experience the whimsical world of Sui first-hand. On February 11, Sui will join fashion journalist Tim Blanks for a conversation on all things fashion at the museum, an event that serves as the perfect complement to the 100 looks from Sui’s archive currently on display in The World of Anna Sui. Tickets available here.

Balthazar at 80 Spring Street

Balthazar, Keith McNally’s French brasserie in SoHo, has hosted numerous Fashion Week events in its day: it’s the usual post-show spot for Victoria Beckham when she shows during NYFW, and was the scene for Calvin Klein’s starry perfume launch in 2018. The New York establishment is a frequent haunt of editors, stylists, and models, but you’re just as likely to find locals dining alongside these fashion heavyweights at any given time.

The Polo Bar at 1 East 55th Street

What better way to celebrate fashion week than dining at an iconic designer’s restaurant? Ralph Lauren’s midtown staple The Polo Bar seamlessly combines style and fine dining. The menu is filled with classic picks like shrimp cocktail, pigs in a blanket, and the legendary Polo Bar Burger. If you have an uptown fashion show on your agenda, the Polo Bar is an ideal next stop.

The elegant Jacques Bar at the Lowell Hotel attracts the stylish uptown set–and is conveniently away from the crowds downtown. For previous New York Fashion Weeks, Jacques Bar created designer-inspired cocktails, like the Coco, which pays homage to Coco Chanel, and the Majorelle Garden Iced Tea, in honor of Yves Saint Laurent, for an extra special way to celebrate the most stylish week on the New York social calendar.
