Welcome To The Coco Club

the-coco-club-game-room-1510339515

Leaning in to the old adage that time is the greatest luxury, Chanel has created the Coco Club—a new space in New York for fans to unwind and pamper themselves, and to promote its new Boy∙Friend watch collection.
This Sunday, the luxury brand will be taking over the SoHo location of The Wing (a women-only work and social space) redesigning the already bright and feminine rooms in the French house’s traditional minimalist aesthetic. Luxe cream and black furniture adorned with the label’s interlocking “CC” logo are juxtaposed with vintage picture frames and trinkets, as well as the neon pink photo booths where guests will have their portraits taken for their club “passports.”

The 100 Best Restaurants In America, According To OpenTable

landscape-1480781422-hbz-best-restaurants-index
OpenTable, the dining reservation service, has just released its list of the 100 best restaurants in America for 2016. The company analyzed more than 10 million reviews of more than 24,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and came up with this list of "honorees." New York took top honors, with 13 honorees on the list, followed by California, with 12, and Virginia, with seven. In contrast to other "best of" lists, such as the World's 50 Best Restaurants Awards, this list is not ranked. And while established restaurants make up the majority of winners, several places that opened in 2016, such as Chicago's Oriole, made the list. American and French cuisines are the most popular, but...

PHOTO: VIA @STUFFBENEATS.
In a city of never-ending menus and food trends, it can be hard to figure out the next best brunch spot, lunchtime haunt, or recipe to master. However, all those hours you spend sifting through the world of Instagram can actually result in more than just ogling of some serious #foodporn. In fact, it may be the best way to uncover new foodie finds. There's no doubt we're always looking to expand our palette and our ideas. And sometimes, the most interesting part of discovering the next best food shots are the stories behind the 'gram: While some folks dedicate their entire lives to the culinary craft, others simply have a passion for anything involving a kitchen, or put their focus...

A Doughnut Crawl Through New York

Photo: Courtesy of Dough
It’s never been too hard to find a good doughnut in New York. There are the old stalwarts, like the famous Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, where they have been serving up classic glazed, sprinkled, and filled doughnuts of your dreams for decades. There are also more inventive doughnuts on the scene right now, like Doughnut Plant’s new savory yeast doughnuts and Dough’s hibiscus or gin and tonic flavors. On the complete other end of the spectrum from this humble snack’s beginnings, Manila Social Club has its $100, 24-karat gold leaf doughnut glazed with Cristal champagne icing, which became a social media sensation practically overnight. Here, some of our favorite doughnut spots around the city, for...

Norma's Inside the Parker Meridien
"Norma's is ridiculously expensive, even by NYC standards, but justified by the friendliest servers, the attention to detail and the oversized portions that will last you from brunch til dinner. It's a small thing, but I appreciate the huge kettles the tea comes in—nothing worse than a tiny cup that requires asking for refills every five minutes just to get your caffeine fix." —Alexandra Tunell, Digital Beauty Editor

NYC’s Coolest New Restaurant Is Hidden In The Back Of An East Village Bar

landscape-1459199785-e7a8934
Upon entering The Garret, the East Village bar designed to look like your coolest friend's living room, it's hard to imagine how the space could be improved upon (the pink neon sign in the doorway says "No Bad Days," after all). But, if you walk the length of the bar, past the velvet booths and a cozy seating area (keep an eye out for vintage copies of BAZAAR on the bookshelf), you'll find yourself standing in front of a thick curtain, behind which lies a short hallway and an Alice in Wonderland-style wooden door. Ring the doorbell, and instead of Wonderland, enter Dinnertable. The brainchild of culinary power couple Scott Tacinelli and Angie Rito (both formerly of Quality Branded spots like Quality Italian...
