With today's Groupon, $25 gets you $50 at Fashion 40 Lounge, located at 202 W 40th Street (between 7th and 8th Ave.) in the Fashion District. Fashion 40 is like a David Bowie song sung by a perfectly cooked Maine lobster that's been stuffed in a Prada handbag and carried by a stunning lifeguard; no matter what you like, something about it will be awesome. From the ‘Late Night Lounge’ on Friday and Saturday to the jazz nights and fashion shows, if it can happen and it's cool, it will probably happen at Fashion 40. There's also an ‘After Work Party’ on Friday—and we're not just talking about dollar drafts.
Fashion 40 serves Northern Italian cuisine, and Northern Italians would rather you die than eat a bad meal. Try the smoked salmon with capers, red onions, and tasty cream cheese and dill spread or the bow-tie pasta primavera sautéed with winter vegetables. The kitchen is open Monday to Friday from 4 p.m. to midnight, at which point the Italian kitchen staff makes the non-Italian kitchen staff practice their Italian-ness by performing scenes from Goodfellas. Stick around for a celebrity bellini: 10 cane rum and peach schnapps topped with champagne. For you divas, try the diva: Absolut 100 vodka, x-rated passion fruit liqueur, rum, grenadine, lime juice, and 7UP.
