Healthy Manhattan Restaurants for NYFW (& All Year)

New York Fashion Week is here again! Whether you are a visiting editor in town for the shows, or a local fashionista with a packed schedule - a girl (or guy!)’s gotta eat. While there is always plenty of booze at the week’s poshest parties; one cannot subsist on canapés alone and cocktail garnish does not count as your daily veggies.

It’s always a challenge to eat well during a week this hectic. So for Guest of a Guest this season, I rounded up my picks for the best healthy and hip restaurants in Manhattan, all guaranteed to satisfy picky palettes, discerning eyes and slim waistlines alike.

Check out my map for over 40 cafes and restaurants ranging from fresh grab on-the-go snacks, to chic-eats worth making a reservation. So even if you’re not in fashion at all, but share a taste for the light and trendy; these farm-to-table/local and seasonal/paleo/veggie-friendly locations are worth a visit any time of year.

YELLOW Casual cafes best for brunch, lunch or a snack to go
BLUE Chic eats worthy of an evening of good food and good friends
