When you’re shopping for sheets, the philosophy is simple: Buy the best you can afford—you’re going to spend a third of your life wrapped up in them. For ultrapersonal service, high-quality fabrics, and incredibly elegant offerings, try Archipelago, a fourteen-year-old company that opened its first retail showroom last year in Tribeca. There are more than 170 fabrics to choose from, ranging from solids to textured prints—and everything is custom-made to your specifications. Paralyzed by choice? Archipelago makes house calls ($250) to recommend styles for your space. Prices range from $120 for a 154-thread-count Italian-cotton flat or fitted sheet to $2,400 for a deluxe duvet cover.

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.
