FEATURES
The Best of New York
If you can make it here -- yeah, you know the drill. But how do you define making it? Carnegie Hall, or CBGB? Le Bernardin, or Pizza 33? This year, we've selected winners in most categories at both the high and the low end -- so your budget won't be an obstacle to the pursuit of excellence. Food Our favorites -- from braised beef cheeks to the quintessential slice of pizza margherita. Shopping The best sources for what you seek, whether it's the perfect pair of jeans, a set of original Eames chairs, or a warm winter coat (for your dog). Nightlife Good-bye, Rudy, hello, party. At hot spots like Luxx, Splash Bar, and Bungalow 8, the party's just getting started. Fun and Games From candy stores to Ping-Pong parlors, for the young and the young at heart. Beauty Have a milk-and-honey pedicure, a lava-stone massage, or (why not?) an entire day of beauty -- our picks of spas and salons that will make you glad you did. Services It's time you got that passport renewed, wallpaper hung, closet reorganized, jacket restyled: These folks will do the job -- with skill that's anything but ordinary.

THE CRITICS
Movies
BY PETER RAINER
Time Out is a small film that asks big questions; Showtime is more clichéd than comedic
