Best Bras

    416 Amsterdam Ave., 212-875-9168

    The saleswomen here size you up visually, then send you into the dressing room with options. They hover while you try them on, critique your technique (hooking the strap too tightly is very common), and keep bringing styles until you’ve got one that fits. There are workaday bras from brands like DKNY as well as meant-to-impress styles from names like Betsey Johnson, whose hot pink bra is comparably priced ($40) and better quality than anything at Victoria’s Secret.

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.
