Midtown East, Manhattan, New York City
When on vacation, you just have to be gluttonous -- especially in New York City, arguably the food capital of America. The New York Palace boasts Gilt, a glamorous two Michelin-starred restaurant. Scenes from Gossip Girl are often shot here. And when they're not shooting, guests and locals visit the restaurant to feast on dishes like venison with huckleberries and squash, and foie gras.
