  • 5F, Bergdorf Goodman

    754 Fifth Ave., 212-558-1855

    It seems a little obvious to direct smart shoppers toward a department store, but Bergdorf’s fifth floor has an excellent selection of pretty dresses from well-knowns like Diane Von Furstenberg, M.Missoni, and Vera Wang, as well as smaller labels like Nanette Lepore, Milly, and Iisli (there’s also vintage from What Goes Around Comes Around). Most of it is under $400; right now, there’s a jungle-green cotton eyelet dress from Tracy Reese ($275), a black-and-gray bubble dress from Cynthia Steffe ($330), and a gauzy ballet pink-and-black tulle slip dress from Jill Stuart ($299).

Where can you find the city’s top dog groomer? Last-minute tailor? Beef tongue? We eat, drink, dance, shop, shvitz, and trampoline our way around the city, not to mention poll scores of in-the-know colleagues, hard-partying friends, opinionated family members, and, this year, a team of guest expert bloggers to bring you answers to all of the above questions, and hundreds more, in the form of our annual “Best of New York” issue.
