Yes, you guessed it, it’s that time of the year...again. Magazines have put out their long awaited September covers and fashionistas are waiting in anticipation for the most important month in the sartorial calendar.
Going against popular belief, fashion week doesn’t mean you have to starve. Quite the contrary. All four fashion week cities are bursting with a la mode eateries all waiting for you to snap that perfect pic for the gram. We have created our list of the top spots to be seen this September.
It's time for New Yorkers to wake up. Super chic has found its way to the concrete streets of New York City, in the heart of SoHo. Celebrated chef Daniel Rose, the brainchild behind Paris' La Bourse et La Vie restaurant, is now the magical maestro behind one of New York's best new kitchens, opened alongside business partner Stephen Starr, and it seems that when French cuisine is done right, it has the potential to be the It order anytime, anywhere, making it traditional, treasured and timeless. This is essentially your invitation to experience Chef Rose's intimate vision of French cuisine using American-grown ingredients - expect colourful and aromatic compositions served in an exceptionally aesthetic manner. Interiors were designed by Roman and Williams, having captured the charm of French bistros and urban chalets (à la plush seating and rustic elegance) without compromising on the classic NYC industrial feeling with its exposed brick walls, cast-iron chandeliers and the natural sunlight that dances across the parquet flooring by day is gracefully replaced by candlelight after sunset.

La Bodega Negra in SoHo could be the setting of a noir film. Dark, classy, and with a hint of mystery, this edgy Mexican Restaurant serves dishes full of flavour and spice as well as handcrafted tequila cocktails. Although the building's architecture is in the Tudor style, the food is unique to London's cold climate and recalls the heat of Central America. If you like trying new flavours or testing your spice tolerance, the house made habanero, chipotle, and cascabel hot sauces pair well with any dish. Do not let La Bodega Negra's exterior prevent you from stepping indoors and sampling some of London's best Mexican cuisine.

La Bottega Del Vino
Mood lighting and rustic interiors define the aesthetic of La Bottega del Vino. Small and intimate inside, the wine list is extensive and the menu carefully curated and delicious. With only a few tables, the atmosphere is ameliorated by the camaraderie and convivial nature between staff and diners alike. Choose a few antipasti from the menu to share and, perhaps, follow it up with the delicious octopus. La Bottega Del Vino also puts on a very Milanese aperitif, with a heated outdoor seating area and a wonderful glass of wine, of course.
