- Simon Salon
874 Lexington Avenue, 212-717-2060
Every time Catherine Deneuve is in town, Paris-trained Simon Sabag does her hair. Who can argue with that? Indeed, a trip to his salon is like leaving Manhattan behind for a very short, restorative trip to the seizième. His daily blow-dry regulars (including Jean Doumanian) often come with bodyguards—the jewelry, of course—but his blonde highlights, applied with a knife, are the work of an old master.

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.
