When it comes to pampering, Southern ladies have always had the edge on their society sisters up North. That's because, Sugar, the sensational Greenhouse Spa is based in Dallas, not some gritty city north of the Mason-Dixon line. Until recently, that is, when the Greenhouse took pity on its Park Avenue clientele and opened a swank version on 57th Street in Manhattan. Blond oak paneling, frosted glass shoji doors, and plump white cushions create a cool Zen interior. And instead of the Texas original's chauffeur and pink-uniformed maids, you get a plugged-in concierge and luncheon courtesy of caterer du jour Key Winstead.

As you decompress in one of 15 spa rooms, an industrious staffer will steam the wrinkles out of your Armani and polish your Pradas. During the Tibetan Rejuvenation, a vitalizing quickie for power shoppers, a therapist places a soothing mask over puffy eyes and rubs coconut-anise essential oil, followed by heated river rocks, on tired feet. You can get a laser peel with a dermatologist or the gentle Floral Facial, with rose water-based Chantecaille creams and fresh rose petals in a moisturizing mask. $85-$300. 127 E. 57th Street, New York, NY 10022; 212-644-4449.
