There's nothing quite like dining while you shop.

From places that are destinations in their own right to the spots that are there for you when you're approaching hangry in the check-out line, the city has no shortage options for grabbing a bite while shopping.

While some of the greats in this genre are gone (R.I.P, Le Train Bleu, the dining car restaurant formerly inside Bloomingdale's), there are still plenty of classic places that offer that ladies-who-lunch vibe, as well as more modern spins like abcV. Here's a look at some of your options.

Shopping for furniture -- all that measuring and

Shopping for furniture -- all that measuring and visualizing and debating -- can get exhausting. If you're there for dinner rather than breakfast, make a reservation at Jean-Georges Vongerichten's market-forward restaurant, remarkably popular with even non-furniture shoppers. The seasonal menu includes dishes like farro, chickpea and white bean soup ($15); Skuna Bay salmon with red cabbage, mustard and apple ($33); and kasha and bow tie pasta with veal meatballs ($17).

Cafe SFA at Saks Fifth Avenue

Right beside the temptations of the Eighth floor
Right beside the temptations of the Eighth floor shoe department stands Cafe SFA, with excellent views of St. Patrick's Cathedral and a staunch ladies-who-lunch vibe.

Stella 34 Trattoria at Macy's

Open for lunch and dinner, this Italian restaurant

Open for lunch and dinner, this Italian restaurant has a reputation for going above and beyond New Yorkers' expectations for a restaurant located on the sixth floor of the world's largest department store and tourist magnet. Start with small plates like the crudo, with salmon, pistachio crema, blood orange, basil, taggiasca olive and candied pistachio ($10) or the Carciofini, comprised of baby artichoke and robiola cheese atop olive focaccia, with preserved lemon and basil ($10). Then dive into some Neapolitan pizza -- like the luxurious Contadino, with sun-dried bell pepper pesto, spicy lamb sausage, artichoke, ricotta, arugula, pecorino and preserved lemon ($18) or pasta, like the squid ink-soaked briney classic Chitarra, with clams, tomato, garlic, anchovy, chili, lemon zest, bottarga and bread crumbs ($24). You wouldn't expect to find this kind of food -- or an Italian-styled aperitivo hour, or the killer view of the Empire State Building -- behind the bedding section at Macy's, but it's there waiting for you and your shopping bags.

Flip at Bloomingdale's

Venture into the Bloomingdale's basement for the ultimate

Venture into the Bloomingdale's basement for the ultimate shopping fuel: burgers and mac and cheese. You could swing a healthier route, with salads like the seared-tuna Nicoise ($23), but indulgent crab mac with truffle butter ($17) -- or a create your own mac option starting at $12 -- is hard to resist when filling your Big Brown Bags. Build your own burger, starting with patties like the beef and portobello mushroom blend ($13) or the exotic lamb-Merguez sausage blend ($16) and accessorize with a wide section of breads, sauces, cheeses and, of course, fries. A tip for sweet-toothed Bloomies shopper: If you want dessert, but don't want to feel super guilty, head over to Forty Carrots for the famous frozen yogurt.
