Whether you're a part of the action or not, Fashion Week practically takes over New York City twice a year. There are street-style photographers outside your favorite coffee shop and too much traffic basically everywhere. Restaurants and bars seem to be dominated with leggy models and an influx of show-going celebrities. It's a little like Christmastime in the city, except instead of Santa Claus we have Diane Von Furstenberg, and instead of a sleigh full of reindeer there are Ubers and black cars and SUVs — oh my!
While there are the usual suspects of restaurants, bars, hotels, and nightclubs that are sure to be on the fashion pack's agenda and Instagram feeds this week, we decided to go in search of a few more under-the-radar picks that are editor-approved and super chic.
