'Sex and the City' Still Influencing Food Trends 20 Years Later

'Sex and the City' Still Influencing Food Trends 20 Years Later

It's been 20 years since the first episode of Sex and the City made its television debut on June 6, 1998, and we can’t help but marvel at the ways this show is still impacting the way we eat and drink. The four characters and their aspirational Manhattan lives influenced women from the late ‘90s to the mid 2000s all the way to today in terms of what to wear, what to eat, and where to go in New York City.

Save for Jimmy Choos, nothing is more identified with Sex and the City than a cosmopolitan. The pink drink of choice for all of the show’s women inspired generations of fans to order a cosmo so they could feel like Manhattan’s fab four. Nowadays, the show still influences restaurants and bars to create drinks inspired by the characters. At the Grand Hyatt New York, guests can order the “Mr. Big,” a cocktail made from Ketel One, Cointreau, lime, guava juice, and orange bitters.

Sweetie, these strong female leads practically invented brunch. In every episode — even if they were on vacation, Charlotte, Miranda, Carrie, and Samantha shared a late-morning meal. Charlotte usually ordered something healthy, Miranda got something with starch, Carrie always chose eggs, and Samantha would have coffee to start. Their ambitious weekend brunches have inspired scores of ladies to spend the workweek perusing guides for the best brunches to hit up on weekends with their girl gangs — even 20 years after the show’s first episode.

Because of the six-season series, lines formed out the door for New York restaurants like Sushi Samba, Tao, Il Cantinori, and Magnolia Bakery after scenes were filmed there. Steve Abrams, the owner of Magnolia Bakery, told the New York Post that his sales quadrupled after a scene was filmed with Carrie and Miranda snacking on pink frosted cupcakes outside their Bleecker Street location. “There were no lines [out the door] before Sex and the City … [then the shop was suddenly doing] 2 or 3 million in sales,” he said. The beloved bakeshop later created a specialty cupcake for Sarah Jessica Parker’s iconic character­ called the “Carrie,” a vanilla cake with pink pastel buttercream and a daisy on top.

According to People, on June 6, in honor of Sex and the City’s 20th anniversary, Magnolia Bakery will give away 50 of their Carrie cupcakes for free at all locations between 12 and 1 p.m. Since its guest appearance on the show, the bakeshop has expanded to Chicago, Boston, and Los Angeles, and many people still recognize it from the series.

Whether you’re a Carrie, a Miranda, a Charlotte, a Samantha, or even a Stanford, you’ll appreciate this list of the best food and drinks in New York!


Is a Third Sex and the City Movie on the Way? Here Are the Facts

Rumors of a third Sex and the City film have been swirling ever since the second one was released. The stars have intermittently stoked the fire throughout the years, hinting that it's coming . . . maybe. Though the second film debuted to less-than-satisfactory reviews in 2010, events from the past two years still point to a revival starring Parker, Kristin Davis, and the whole gang that might be in the works. Let's review everything leading up to Parker's recent comments.

In 2014, Davis posted an interesting message to Parker, accompanied by a picture of the two at the premiere of Sex and the City 2:

As the world silently combusted, Parker replied:

Willie Garson, aka Stanford, weighed in on the rumors with E!: "I actually emailed young Ms. Parker and I haven't heard back yet, but what is going on?" As for whether he would want to be involved with a third film, he said, "I would do it till I'm 90."

Later in 2014, Jennifer Hudson also added fuel to rumors during an interview with Dish Nation. "Somebody just came to me talking about that," she said. "So if it's in the talks, it might happen. So look for it."

In May 2015, Parker posted this picture on Instagram:

Though she was talking about her shoe collection, we (understandably) thought the picture might be about a new SATC movie. Parker finally commented on the misunderstanding in an interview with Cosmopolitan, saying:

"Oh my god. When I posted that picture and people were in a rage at me, I was shocked. They were convinced I had been taunting them. I'm not that clever! And to what end would I relish dangling this idea and then saying there's no movie? I'm still finding people and being like, 'No @BoobityBopBeep! Why would I hurt you?' I've never been a mean girl."

While promoting her new HBO series in October 2016, Divorce, Parker reignited rumors. When asked about another movie, she told the hosts of CBS's Sunday Morning: "I will say that the idea, it rests in the butler's pantry. Not on the table, but somebody is holding it fairly nearby."

Until it's officially confirmed, we're skeptical. Stay tuned for more news about the potential sequel, and let us know if you would be excited to see it or if you're hoping it doesn't happen. In the meantime, take our Sex and the City quiz and relive the show's funniest moments!
