Who's the best new chef? What new boutique grows in Brooklyn? Who sells the sexiest lingerie? These are not questions one takes lightly. But after countless hours of research (as well as an exhausting regimen of shopping, spa treatments, burger tastings, and rounds of golf), the results are in.

Late-night noshing, neighborhood trattorias, real pit barbecue, and oysters that are as romantic as advertised: Stay hungry.

Shopping
Want to join the club-chair craze? Fancy a pair of cashmere sweats? New scuba gear? Where to buy what your heart desires.

Nightlife
After-hours parties, new jazz joints, Brooklyn bar-hopping, a clubgoers' Website -- if you're still staying home, you have no excuse.

Kids
Child-friendly restaurants, beautiful handmade toys, the highest of art classes: Parental guidance provided.

Beauty & Fitness
Getting trimmed, toned, waxed, clipped, polished, shaved, stretched, blown dry, and otherwise primped to your peak potential.

Services
Wildflowers, waiters for hire, cashmere reweavers, criminal-defense lawyers: Everybody needs somebody.
