Have a taste for luxury on a shoestring budget? A stroll down Madison Avenue affords you a gaze into its famed whimsical holiday installations (complete with equally awe-inspiring fashion) for zilch. Editors' pick: Baz Luhrman's 'Baz-Dazzled' Windows at Barneys New York.
If you like your Christmas decor in spades, head down to Rolf's, which is decorated with an explosion of lights, ornaments, and poinsettias. We tend to order a glass of mulled wine and some homemade schnitzel. View the menu and hours at rolfsnyc.com.
