Welcome to my New York City series, “N Y C-eries!” I’m sharing all about my favorite spots in New York City through this travel series, and this one is one of my favorite posts! Here, I’m sharing about my favorite restaurant in New York City, the Bergdorf Goodman Cafe. I also am sharing about the new cafe addition to Bergdorf Goodman, Palette by Ashley Longshore. Dining at Bergdorf Goodman is an experience that will make you feel like you own the place, and take you away from the hustle and bustle of Fifth Avenue, and seat you above Central Park to create a rich and relaxing dining experience.
Since opening its doors in 1901, Bergdorf Goodman has blessed the fashion industry with a unique spin on luxury fashion, the fashion social scene, and the most treasurable shopping experiences of a lifetime. Along with each and every floor draped ceiling to floor in designs and pieces most of us can only imagine our closets being filled with, Bergdorf Goodman is also home to one of the most tasteful and eye-candy worthy restaurants in New York City, the Bergdorf Goodman Cafe. Located on the seventh floor of BG, the cafe is my favorite place to dine in NYC. The cafe offers menus for lunch, tea, cocktails, and dinner, and overlooks its neighbors, The Plaza Hotel and Central Park.
Kelly Wearstler, an interior designer from Los Angeles, gracefully decorated the BG Cafe in light blue and cool green, with hand painted wallpaper and exquisite seating. The BG menus feature some of New York fashion icons’ favorites, such as the champagne topped cocktail, The Passionista, the famous Gotham Salad, white chocolate bread pudding, and so much more.
This year, for Christmas, I was gifted the Bergdorf Goodman Cookbook, featuring an array of BG classics and staples, and many that have been on and off the menu from time to time. You can purchase the cookbook in Bergdorf Goodman, or online here: https://www.amazon.com/Bergdorf-Goodman-Cookbook/dp/0062318551/ref=asc_df_0062318551/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312029893875&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16812346616277148398&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9060042&hvtargid=pla-583530792370&psc=1.
I absolutely can not wait to get back to New York City and dine at the Bergdorf Goodman cafe! If you’re visiting New York, I HIGHLY recommend a post-shopping lunch at BG!!
A recent addition to Bergdorf Goodman is the Ashley Longshore “Palette” cafe on the beauty level (bottom floor) of Bergdorf Goodman. Ashley Longshore is a New Orleans, LA artist, who is currently the artist in residence at BG. Palette opened in June of 2018, serving brunch, lunch, and cocktails for seating of 50.
This cafe is the most unique brunch stop ever. The artwork that covers the walls is hilarious, incredible, and one-of-a-kind! Though it is very small and can be crowded, the cafe is one that is sure to capture the most fun photos and give you a look at art you don’t see everyday!
I visited Palette this past October and would love to go back! I highly recommend checking it out if you are visiting Bergdorf Goodman!!
