Take a quick break between shows to grab a bite at The Lobster Place, located right across the street from Milk Studios in the Meatpacking District. Sit back and let the chef create a customized “entrust the chef” menu from the market’s daily selection or opt for a Nigiri & Maki Omakase ($35) or a Traditioanl Omakase Tasting ($65). Of course, you can also pick up some take away sushi if you’re in a hurry. If you have more time, how about sitting at the raw bar and enjoying some seasonal oysters with a glass of bubbly? Finally, if you’re a fan of poke, try their classic Steelhead Salmon Poke Bowl (fresh salmon, hijiki, edamame, fresh herbs, FishGuys poke sauce, and tobiko) — available for take away.
You don’t have to walk far to enjoy Scarpetta’s delicious Italian food. Located in the heart of the Meatpacking District, it’s a great place to stop in and refuel. Their new fall menu includes the Ricotta Cappellacci, prepared with honshemjii mushrooms and black truffle. Non-pasta eaters can also enjoy a variety of items including halibut, organic chicken, Ceci bean soup, and Stracciatella with butternut squash, celeiac, apple, and truffle vinaigrette. Of course, if you need a drink, they have some pretty tasty cocktails. Our favorites include the Invecchiato Negroni and the Rose All Day (Mt Gay Black Barrel, peach, lillet rose, and rose). Buon appetito!

Click on NYFW Most Fashionable Dishes Guide to see which places made the list. A few highlights include the Corn Husk Meringue at Cosme, the pizza from Emily, and the entire dessert menu at Per Se (because, it’s Per Se, after all). Fashion Week just got even more exciting!
Pop into Margaux at The Marlton in between shows and enjoy lunch at this Instagram-worthy hot spot (seriously, their seasonal vegetable mashes don’t even need a filter). This boutique property is located in the heart of Greenwich Village and was built in 1900. It’s filled with warm, Parisian-style influences — including an iconic skylight in the restaurant’s solarium. Chef Michael Reardon is constantly changing the menu to make sure you get the best experience, but you can never go wrong sharing a cheese plate. Snack on beet chips or cauliflower custard before working your way to the main course. Warning: you may want to keep you phone out in case you spot a celebrity this week.
If you’re really running late and only have time for a quick bite, then make your way to Maman. They’ve teamed up with Erin McKenna’s Bakery to create a delicious gluten-free Banana Chocolate Marble Teacake. It’s soft yet slightly dense thanks to its simple ingredients of ripe bananas, agave, and garbanzo and fava bean flour. Pair a slice ($3.95) with a strong cup of coffee in the morning or an Almond Matcha Latte in the afternoon. It’s a great little snack that’s not only gluten-free but vegan, soy-free, and kosher. Stock up on a whole loaf or stop by one of their many locations while you’re running around town.
