The Best Store/Restaurant Combinations Around the Country
Fred's has REALLY good food. And it's INSIDE of Barneys. Can you think of anything better than a delicious salad to go with your new pair of designer shoes? Nah. Also note that you can't get a better turkey club on the Upper East Side.
If you haven't had a signature popover from Neiman Marcus, you're missing out on a delicious thing. It's buttery and perfect. Everything else on the menu is great (I practically grew up inside of a Neiman Marcus restaurant, so my opinion really counts here) and you'll lunch alongside the ladies. Chic ones.
1450 Ala Moana Blvd, Honolulu, 808-951-3428
400 North Park Ctr, Dallas, 214-891-1209
2442 E. Sunrise Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, 954-396-4520
When I'm in Dallas, I stop by Forty Five Ten to try on every single Celine shoe. Then at the T Room, I'll have the Green Goddess Salad with chicken, a tortilla soup and the biscotti plate. I probably won't buy a Celine shoe, but I'm almost just as happy having a nice lunch.
4510 McKinney, Dallas, 214-559-2332
Holy deviled eggs and egg shaped chairs! I have dreams about them. And the space makes you feel like you're Blair Waldorf for an afternoon. Or maybe Blair Waldorf starring in Alice in Wonderland. This is my favorite place in the country to eat lunch.
The 7th Floor at Bergdorf Goodman, 5th Avenue at 58th Street, 212-872-8977
Say hello to César Vega, your friendly neighborhood barista at American Two Shot, an awesome new store in Nolita. It's my favorite place to stop and say hi to friends, buy at least three new vintage tees and get a PERFECT coffee with the PERFECT cookie. You'll probably find me here at least once a week, so come say hi.
135 Grand St, NYC, 212-925-3403
Chi-town! My hometown! At the cafe you can get farm-to-table-to-go along with your fashion. The clothing selection may be from Paris and Italy, but lunch is all local.
15 East Huron Street, Chicago, 312-587-1000
It's where Cher Horowitz gets her most sophisticated ensembles—and where every single celebrity goes to get the best smoothies. LA is so all about the very healthy power lunch.
420 Broadway Street, Santa Monica, 310-395-6252
