Fashionable Lunch Saturday Newbury St

Recommend a fashionbly tasty lunch for a visitor of the NYC fashion police.

  1. Hm, is that a command? Do they care about food or just about people watching? If the former, if it's open for lunch on Saturdays, Boston Public at Louis Boston (the address is Berkeley St. but it's at the corner of Newbury). Pino Maffeo used to cook w/ Patricia Yeo at AZ, I believe. Sort of a rarified, Asian-inflected steakhouse. Bouchee's also a decent choice, w/ streetside patio.

      if you don't care about the food, and just the fashion, you could have lunch on the patio at armani cafe.

      piattini has its fans here too.

      other than the above suggestions, newbury st. is a culinary wasteland.

        "Hm, is that a command?" I'm LMAO.

        I'd second Boston Public at Louis Boston and add Sonsie.

          I'd vote for Piattini or Bouchee but generally agree that Newbury, while full of eye candy is a dearth of food options. I'd seriously advise against Sonsie. My last 2 visits (there will be no more) were terrible. The produce was dull, and the service was inattentive and just all-around terrible.

        2. Piattini, Stephanie's, Armani Cafe, Louis Cafe, Sonsie...all on Newbury Street

            Cafe Louis had become Restaurant L (2004?), and is now Boston Public Meat.
