London’s Nota Bene Destination Review is a very pricey ($455 for 10 issues a year) publication which alternates reviews of exotic resorts and fashionable cities, focusing on one in each issue.

The Financial Times recently asked the Nota Bene editors to quiz the concierges of five top Manhattan hotels (the Mandarin Oriental, the Carlyle, The Mercer, the Four Seasons, and 60 Thompson) on what they consider to be the finest, most exquisite places to shop, drink, and eat in New York.

The results:

Hottest new restaurant: Spice Market

Really good lounge bar: Temple Bar; Pravda; Stone Rose; Circa Tabac; Soho House

Cocktail hour: Sanctum at the Tribeca Grand; Schiller’s Liquor Bar; Ritz-Carlton on Central Park South

Sunday brunch: Prune; 9th Street Market; Pastis

New Boutique: Bagutta Life; Resurrection; Steven Alan on Franklin; Scoop

The new “Kate Spade”: Marc Jacobs; Rafe on Bleecker Street

Stylish shoes: Geraldine; Milena; Sigerson Morrison; Hollywould; Michel Perry; Christian Louboutin on Madison; Jeffrey in the Meatpacking District
