Scarpetta
Dinner // Scarpetta
The tastiest spaghetti outside of Rome is at this likeable spot in the Meatpacking District, where a small, nondescript entrance belies a spacious, swanky interior. Try the Sicilian spiced duck breast with orange and root vegetables.

Shop at MoMA
Afternoon // Shop at MoMA
Peruse all manner of glossy design books and objects at MoMA’s Design and Bookstore on West 53rd Street. The MoMA Design Store across the street showcases a higher-end range of design objects, jewelry, furniture and light fixtures.

New Museum and Armani/Ristorante
Morning // New Museum
With an edifice resembling a control tower, the New Museum is “emitting signals picked up everywhere in the world,” says special exhibitions director Massimiliano Gioni.

Lunch // Armani/Ristorante
Start your exploration of Giorgio Armani’s brash new Fifth Avenue flagship store with lunch at the top-floor hideaway eatery, where you can fortify yourself with shrimp cakes and a pistachio semifreddo.
