A sticky-fingered woman from Chile funded her dream Big Apple getaway with credit cards she lifted from a patron at a Midtown restaurant — to the tune of $19,000, cops said Thursday.

Amalia Venegas Briones, 31, stole another woman’s wallet at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse on Sixth Avenue near Rockefeller Center on Jan. 22, cops said.

Venegas Briones was arrested Tuesday and is facing charges of grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.

She allegedly used the plastic inside the wallet to rack up charges at Saks Fifth Avenue, J. Crew, and Louis Vuitton. She also made purchases at Connolly’s Pub on East 47th Street and at a Manhattan nail and hair salon, cops said.

She hadn’t been arraigned as of Thursday afternoon, officials said.
