I'm taking my mother and sister to NYC in a month and I'd like to take them out to some nice, if possible somewhat trendy restaurants (not $100 a person but stylish, like I could wear Manolos or Gucci and look in place). We'll probably go to Babbo just because the last time I was in NYC I went there and loved it. Not sure its trendy but the food was fantastic. I'm looking for a few other options as well. Lunch places around the Upper East Side would be great as well because we'll be staying around there. Is Pastis still a cool place to go? And was it featured in Sex & the City? My sister would love to go if it was (we'll be making a trip to the Magnolia bakery b/c I heard that was in SATC, haha). A friend in NYC claims that Pastis is still trendy, but I thought it wasn't anymore. Which Prada is the best in NYC? Since I got her a Prada bag my sister is a little Prada addict. I've only been to the store in the Upper East Side, is the Soho store better? Any plays out that people recommend? Thanks ladies! I so love NYC!
