We call them “Dinner Tops” – what to wear for a dinner with friend, co workers, hubby or significant other.   Every’s girls closet should have a least one, “grab and go”, to wear over a great pair of black pants, kitten heels or pumps, statement earrings and a chic clutch.  Effortless dressing at its best. What they have in common is a bit of allure and night time appeal.  I never leave on a holiday without at least one of these in my suitcase, they are wonderful for travel.  Scroll down to see the restaurant that our friends recommend to wear them.

Waverly Inn is always a fave too!!  This had 2 votes for favorites.
Le Coq Rico  very delicious and good for groups.  Great concept of an all bird menu, locally sourced.
Waverly inn is one of my FAV spots in NYC
