Bar URBO: Like certain outfits, select cocktails are classic, none more so than the the old fashioned. To celebrate the time tested conversation piece, the bar will offer the select drink for $12 through September 11, and offers a full menu of casual fare like mini lamb burgers for those looking to escape the Times Square scene for awhile. (212-542-8950)

Betony: In honor of Fashion Week, the restaurant is bringing back its special Coco Chanel cocktail for guests in need of a tasty spritz. The Champagne based drink includes a mint leave garnish rolled gently in Chanel No. 5, and can be paired with the restaurant's special Fashion Week dessert: a strawberry sweet inspired by the red outlines of Christian Louboutins. (212-465-2400)

Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya: For $50, guests can enjoy a five-course menu designed specifically for Fashion Week attendees. Special dishes include pork chop with honey chili sauce and mochi ice cream, with a glass of sake and yuzu-hi available for an additional $15. (212-466-0404)

David Burke fabrick: Instead of wearing food unintentionally, guests can opt for a dessert crafted after the Hermès Birkin bag. Known as the "Burke-n'-Bag" Executive Pastry Chef Zac Young's edible accessory is made out of chocolate hazelnut and accompanied by a raspberry ganache and scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. (212-302-3838)

Gran/Eléctrica​: Brooklyn fashionistas can rejoice in the continued popularity of hipsterness here with a $45 five course menu, not to mention a sweet backyard garden.
