Like this, but inside and surrounded by things you can't afford

Reliable sources who don't obsess over food all day long have informed us that New York Fashion Week will kick off tomorrow with Fashion's Night Out. Surprisingly, given the industry's storied aversion to ingesting solids, the event will feature numerous food-related promotions. Perhaps the most ambitious is the Hester Street Fair's plan to take over an entire floor of Henri Bendel.

From 3 until 11 p.m., you'll be able to find basically everything you would at the Hester Street Fair's regular location, but surrounded by handbags and baubles that cost more than the national debt of certain third-world countries.

The menu is as follows:
