Marathon shopping through the grand department stores of Fifth Avenue can be a full-day adventure. The only thing to distract you from emptying out your wallets on potential purchases is the growling of your stomach that sets in somewhere between shoes and cosmetics. Never fear, Fifth Avenue has got you covered, with gourmet restaurants stationed only an escalator ride away. In rain, sleet, or snow, you can dine and shop without having to step foot onto the streets at these five restaurants.
