‘You’ve Got Mail’ (1998)

Cafe Lalo, 201 W. 83rd St., 212-496-6031
Satisfy your sweet tooth at this Upper West Side coffeeshop and dessert bar. The self-proclaimed “most famous café in NYC” was featured as the backdrop for a chance meeting between Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan’s characters. Open into the wee hours of the morning, the European décor and quiet ambiance make a perfect setting for a first date.

‘The Devil Wears Prada’ (2006)

Craft Restaurant, 43 E. 19th St., 212-780-0880
Andy has dinner at the Tom Colicchio restaurant with her father, who expresses concerns about her career/living situation, and she gets an emergency call from her overbearing boss, Miranda. If you go to sample the star chef’s greenmarket fare, hopefully your boss doesn’t interrupt.

‘The Muppets Take Manhattan(1984)

Sardi’s, 234 W. 44th St., 212-221-8440
Sardi’s has been a favorite in the city for the past 90 years, so much so that the Italian restaurant managed to snag a central role in “The Muppets Take Manhattan.” Who could forget the scene where Kermit replaces Liza Minnelli’s picture with his own green face, much to her own chagrin? You can enjoy a piece of childhood nostalgia by visiting Sardi’s for classic dishes like steak tartar and cannelloni au gratin.

‘Saturday Night Fever’ (1977)

Lenny’s Pizza, 1969 86th St., Brooklyn, 718-946-1292
There’s always been a debate as to where you can find the best New York pizza, and it looks like Lenny’s Pizza might have a leg up on the competition after gaining national exposure in the classic disco film. The way Tony chows down on two slices as he strolls on 86th Street makes it hard to imagine there’s a better tasting pizza in the city. You can still relive your memories from the ’70s at Lenny’s in Bensonhurst.

‘Friends With Benefits’ (2011)

Pershing Square Cafe, 90 E. 42nd St., 212-286-9600
Jaime and Dylan agree to “start over” with their relationship at this east side-meets-west side eatery, parked right across from Grand Central, which boasts “the busiest and best breakfast in New York.”

‘Wall Street’ (1987)

21 Club, 21 W. 52nd St., 212-582-7200
The 21 Club, where greedy moneygrubber Gordon Gekko and his apprentice Bud Fox would meet in “Wall Street,” once functioned as a Prohibition-era speakeasy. Visit for true meat-and-potato dishes  — before you know it, you’ll be discussing some of the finer things in life.

The classic

‘When Harry Met Sally’ (1989)

Katz’s Delicatessen, 205 E. Houston St., 212-254-2246
Houston Street eatery Katz’s Deli has been a favorite of native New Yorkers since the early 20th century, but it wasn’t until 1989 that the rest of the world caught a glimpse of the revered restaurant for the first time. A classic in every sense of the word, Katz has a wide selection of traditional diner favorites from burgers to pastrami sandwiches. If you’re ever wondering what to order, just look to the table next to you and say, “I’ll have what she’s having.”
