- Stone Spa
125 Fourth Avenue, 212-254-3045
There’s nothing pretentious about the new Stone Spa. In fact, the Maya mud treatment ($85) is do-it-yourself. Go in alone, or with a friend, to the mud room, slather yourself with the nourishing earth, then enter the herbal steam and bake. For those who prefer full-service, wraps include an antioxidant pomegranate body mask ($155) and a cocoa-bean treatment for cellulite ($155). And, of course, there’s the signature stone massage ($125). In the summer, you can have treatments in the beautiful garden out back.

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.
