I realize I have been a married woman for almost six months, but I know how much you all love reading about my bridal excursions in New York before my wedding. Travel back in time, if you will, to September 2019 for brunch at Butter, and tea at Tiffany’s Blue Box Cafe!
As you all know by now, Butter is one of my favorite restaurants in New York City. It’s owned by my favorite Iron Chef, Alex Guarnaschelli. The decor is stunning, and the food is simply some of the best I’ve ever had. On our last day in the city, we met up with some friends, and headed over to Butter for their amazing brunch. The brunch buffet is $40.00 a person, but the amount of food they put out is amazing. Trust me when I say, you will get your money’s worth.
The selection of brunch items include scrambled eggs, potato cakes, applewood smoked bacon, salad, fennel sausage, fruits, breads, pastries, cured salmon, home fries, spinach, plus the chef’s choice selection, which is usually steak. See what I mean? You can try and eat as much as you want, but one thing is for certain. The food is fresh and delicious. As much as we wanted to stuff ourselves, we had to show restraint. We had another special place to go to a few hours later.
Whenever you are in New York City, please make sure you give Butter a try. Whether you go for brunch or dinner, you will love it. The food and service are top notch. You will see why it’s one of my favorite restaurants!
So, we have all seen the movie, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, right? If you haven’t, you should. A couple of years ago, the Tiffany and Company flagship store in New York decided to open the Blue Box Cafe. Shoppers could finally dine at Tiffany’s. It was an instant hit, and it is probably one of the hardest reservations to get in the city! Through a roundabout way, my husband and I were able to get in!
After letting our earlier brunch settle, it was time for our tea at Tiffany’s. It was awesome! The place was fully booked, and it was easy to see why. We ordered the Breakfast at Tiffany, which was your traditional afternoon tea service. It was a beautiful presentation of tea sandwiches, pastries and scones. The tea was also outstanding. Everything is served on Tiffany plates and tea cups.
If you can get into the Blue Box Cafe, do so. But again, I wish you good luck. You just may need it to get into this immensely popular restaurant. Bon appetite!
