Stylish Dining: Fashion Plates to Wear and to Eat
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

Starting this week, coinciding with Gotham's famed Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, 21 ever-so-chic Upper West Side restaurants are offering their "Fashion Plate" deals on meals.  There is a wide range of eateries participating, some with jaw-dropping, over-the-top menus -- places you've always wanted to try, but were hesitant. There are also deals for Fashion Week staff, and other, more affordable eateries where the crews working Fashion Week can get a delicious take-out meal to be eaten on the fly, with a deep discount. (That program is called Crew Cuts and it's for the staff of Fashion Week, who survive for eight days on air and take-out.) But Fashion Plate restaurants are open to all.

"The Lincoln Square community loves playing host to visitors from around the city and the world -- and our restaurants are always eager to offer special deals. Whether you have tickets to watch the runway shows,  Fashion Plate is a fun and tasty way to celebrate," noted Monica Blum, president of the Lincoln Square Business Improvement District, which has spearheaded this program since its inception.

Fashion Plate Prix Fixe is open to all (just get yourself a reservation first, so you can be assured you get into your favorite places) for lunch, dinner, and brunches during Fashion Week.  Some of New York City's newest hotspots, including Boulud Sud and The Leopard (in the old Café des Artistes spot) are participating. Many restaurants are offering outstanding menu options, such as Atlantic Grill's three-course prix-fixe lunch and dinner, for $24.07 and $35.00 respectively;  A Voce's $29.00 three-course prix fixe lunch. I wrote up A Voce's ice creams, sorbets, and gelatos this summer, after having had a wonderful meal there, so I can vouch for the cuisine -- top notch!
