Not that people still shop Donna Karan like they used to, but regardless, this is a nice little hidden gem upstairs inside the DKNY shop on Madison Avenue and unless you are willing to endure the cost, not to mention the wait, at Fred’s at the top of Barney’s, this is really one of the best things going in terms of affordable nourishment amidst the posh midtown shopping scene.

Everything is organic, vegetarian and delicious. From her incredible Peach smoothie to the veggie burger salad or sandwich- in either form it’s way good. But easy good. Nothing you couldn’t source from a Whole Foods and whip up yourself in about 10 minutes, but that’s also tough to do when you are knee deep in your dressing room, surrounded by shopping bags and you get the growlies. Are you gonna run back home and whip up lunch? No. No you’re not. So for an in-store beacon of convenience,  I highly recommend this oasis as a great pit stop during a grueling NYC shopping spree.
