The subterranean lounge in the Carlton Hotel, Salon Millesime has a cool vibe. The vintage-glam spot serves small plates (you can also order from the upstairs restaurant that has a tasty seafood-inspired menu) and cocktails while grooving to a DJ or live music. It’s the perfect destination for date night and libations with friends.

I attended a birthday celebration for my girl Michelle’s sister, and we did it up in true Sip, Chat, Chow fashion.

Now that French patiserrie Ladurée has opened its doors in NYC we can expect an abundance of couture confections. Ladurée unveiled limited-edition Halloween macarons, available October 21, with a bold orange passion fruit flavor for a cool $20 for 6 macarons.

The NYC location is a sweet jewel box of French pastries, chocolates, ice cream and macarons.

Ladurée New York- 864 Madison Avenue (between 70th and 71st streets) / 646-558-3157

Tom Colicchio delivers waterfront dining starring locally sourced food at Riverpark. It’s located in a barren area that’s out of the way but it’s worth the trip.

The beautiful view of the East River really sets the tone for the elegant, modern and warm atmosphere. This beauty runs throughout all elements including the food.  Riverpark has a romantic feel but it’s also good for big groups. The noise level is low so you can actually have a conversation.

The New American Menu  delivers innovative dishes with Mediterranean influences and locally sourced ingredients- some from their very own Farm out front.

We had brunch outside on the charming terrace and it was wonderful. We brunched on unique and expertly prepared dishes that went beyond standard omelets and french toast.
