  • The Polo Bar
    1 E. 55th St., 212-207-8562, Midtown, Manhattan
    The New York Post's Page Six has breathlessly chronicled the big names sinking into leather booths at Ralph Lauren's Polo Bar since it opened last month: Jerry Seinfeld, Barbara Walters, Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Gay Talese, Harvey Weinstein, Diane von Furstenberg, Barry Diller, Kelly Ripa, Jon Bon Jovi, Lee Radziwill and Andy Cohen, to name check just a dozen. Since there are 132 seats, regular people can get in too. Reservations are necessary and dressing well is encouraged, perhaps off the racks from Lauren's flagship store around the corner. The mahogany-detailed, equestrian-themed dining room exemplifies the type of idealized American lifestyle found in his magazine spreads. The menu also documents American food classics, such as the corned beef with melted swiss on marble rye, filet mignon and roast chicken with mashed potatoes.
