11 Best Bars & Restaurants To Eat & Drink During New York Fashion Week

Like clockwork, New York Fashion Week is once again here to test your ability to balance logistics and have fun. Newbies, seasoned editors, and front-row celebrities will meet on the sidewalk for a jam-packed week of shows, dinners, and afterparties—and it's going to get overwhelming fast. Luckily, nothing gives you the energy to keep going like a tried-and-true coffee shop recommendation to recharge your batteries with a coffee between shows or a late-night restaurant until the sun rises. Ahead, NYLON editors and writers shared their favorite NYC bars, restaurants, and more to make this NYFW the best yet.


Grab a stand and a seafood platter (make sure you get the scallops) at this Shaun Hergatt spot. It's located in the Dominick Hotel, where many models stay during NYFW, providing great people-watching. — Chelsea Peng, editor-in-chief

246 Spring Street, New York, NY 10013

Stone Street Cafe

Stone Street Café on Broome St is one of the few downtown places I've found where you can actually find a table to meet and work with friends after 4 p.m. Their pastries are good, the ambiance is cozy, and the location is very convenient for when you need to kill an hour or two before dinner. — Laura Pitcher, beauty writer

379 Broome Street, New York, NY 10013


Pastis is great all year round, but especially when you need to refuel after a day of non-stop shows. The magical combination of crispy fries and a martini melts away all the fashion week woes you're carrying around. — Layla Halabian, culture editor

52 Gansevoort Street, New York, NY 10014

The public hotel

Sometimes you need something a coffee shop can't guarantee: Wi-Fi and a place to sit. Luckily, you can do it in style at the Public Hotel, which is my favorite place for a quick decompression. With hospitable staff and ample balcony-style seating, it's the perfect elevated stop to relax and refill on coffee – or descend into a cosmos! Sophia June, cultural writer

The Mulberry Tree

Sometimes all you want to do after a day of shows is dance a little with the girls. Mulberry is my favorite place for a nightcap – and I can always count on this cocktail bar to deliver fabulous disco hits. — Kelly Reed, Senior Social Strategist

Lower Level, 240 Mulberry St, New York, NY 10012


Honestly, after a day of shows (or anytime), I just want some banchan and a bunch of kebabs, which they do really well here. You could also do some celebrity spotting. — CP

Jac is linked

Two words: Caprese martinis. Not only does Jac's unique drink represent the pinnacle of the deeply innovative savory cocktail moment, but its garnish of cherry tomatoes and mozzarella balls also makes it the perfect little snack to cheer me up. — S.J.

26 Bond Street, New York, NY 10012

BCD Tofu House

The fact that this place is open until 1 a.m. (5 a.m. Friday and Saturday!) makes it a must-visit spot for late night dining. But their sundubu-jjigae is worth coming back to anytime, any day. —LP

5 West 32nd Street, New York, NY 10001


Taking 10 minutes to sip a cortado can save your life during a hectic week of running around town. I love coming to Abraço for its rich, well-sourced coffee – and, weather permitting, to do a little people watching. —L.H.

81 E 7th St, New York, NY 10003

excuse my French

Whether it's a leisurely dinner for myself or a table for eight, I know I can always count on Pardon My French for the tastiest meal in a cozy corner of the bar. The cocktails and the wine selection are fortunately just as delicious as their Parisian-style dishes. — KR

103 Avenue B, New York, NY 10009

Blue Bottle Coffee

When a bodega coffee just isn't enough, I like to treat myself to Blue Bottle for a truly exceptional cup of coffee that keeps me pumped between shows. My favorite? Samra Origins, a unique collaboration mix from the Weeknd. -SJ
