8 AM: Wake Up at Birch Coffee
With multiple locations across the city, the brew maestros of this coffee joint are never too far away. "I've been a regular since the beginning," says the former and perhaps future first daughter, who frequents the Flatiron outpost. (21 E 27th Street)
9 AM: Carb Load at Tompkins Square Bagels
"Gentrification Bagels is what they should call it," says the co-creator and star of Comedy Central's 'Broad City' about where she recommends tourists grab a New York-style breakfast. "It's made for the post-NYU, grew-up-in-suburbia rich kids who now live in the East Village and think they're roughing it. But they're so f—ing good, it's scary." (165 Avenue A)
10 AM: Break a Sweat at SLT
"SLT is the workout that will get you an insane six-pack," says the Sports Illustrated model of the high-cardio, Pilates-inspired class that now has studios all across the city. Emmy Rossum and Sofia Vergara also sweat it out on their strengthening machines.
12 PM: Lunch at Lure Fishbar
"I don't usually 'lunch' as a verb," says the New York Real Housewife, "but when I do it is at Soho House, Fred's at Barneys in Chelsea or Lure Fishbar in SoHo." The spacious seafood restaurant, which has an upscale yacht-like interior, also boasts $1 oysters at happy hour and a lively bar scene at night. (142 Mercer Street). Unless — and only if you are in the mood to wait — put your name in at L.A.'s beloved sushi export Sugarfish, which opened in Flatiron, and hope for the best. (33 E 20th St.)
2 PM: Get Fitted at Jay Kos
"Jay [Kos] has a truly unique style," says Showtime's 'Ray Donovan' star about the uber-cool tailor and suitmaker in Nolita. "He somehow manages to blend classical dandy with contemporary cool, then throws in a little pimp daddy for good measure." Rapper Andre 3000, comedian Jay Pharoah and Lyor Cohen all are decked out by him as well. (239 Mott Street)
"I loved that you could go to a deli at three in the morning in New York, and it's filled with people."
- Louis C.K.
5 PM: Wander Around the West Village
"There's comedy clubs, there's restaurants, there's good people, there's young people. There's the right amount of noise but a good amount of silence," says the host of Comedy Central's 'The Daily Show' about turning happy hour into an unpredictable (and trendy) adventure.
7:30 PM: Dine on French Fare at Le Turtle
"Carlos Quirarte and Taavo Somer really squared their talents to create a stunningly elegant space that isn't alienating," says the actor of the French modern restaurant on the Lower East Side where he likes to dine with wife Jennifer Aniston. "Plus, they somehow mastered an insane, shockingly healthy French menu." (177 Chrystie Street)

9:30 PM: Check Out a Play at the Public Theater
"It was always my dream to work at The Public when I was a grad student at NYU," recalls the star of NBC's 'This Is Us' and FX's 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story' of the landmark downtown venue at Astor Place. "I'd see numerous productions there, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning 'TopDog/UnderDog' starring Jeffrey Wright and Don Cheadle by Suzan-Lori Parks. I've now had the chance to work at the Public on several occasions, and it always feels like coming home. The work that Oskar Eustis and his team continue to put out year after year embraces diversity, intelligence and humanity. When I have the time, there's always something wonderful to see." (425 Lafayette Street)
12 AM: Order a Midnight Snack at Katz's Deli
"I loved that you could go to a deli at three in the morning in New York, and it's filled with people," says the creator-star of FX's 'Louie' and web series 'Horace and Pete,' who began his love affair with Manhattan when he settled there in 1989. The SoHo diner is open 24 hours on Fridays and Saturdays and though the line can wrap around the corner during the wee hours, the bustling hangout (also the site of Meg Ryan's fake orgasm scene in 'When Harry Met Sally') is a prime spot for late-night people watching. (205 E Houston Street)
