BEST PLACE TO OVERSTAY YOUR 19-MINUTE PARKING LIMIT (2004)
La Grande Orange
Fill your stomach and your grocery bag at La Grande Orange, and then -- if no one's busted you for breaking the 19-minute rule -- take a stroll around the complex that began with Postino, one of the city's most popular wine bars. Make sure you visit Petit Chateau, a trendy mom's dream of a baby shop, and take a peek inside Paper Joy, for invites and note cards. If you're really feeling bold, cross Campbell Avenue and check out Anna Sophia, a boutique offering everything from sparkly jewelry to oversize sparklers.
Trust us, it's worth the dirty looks you'll get when you skulk back to the car.
