NEW YORK – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

I suppose that the title of my blog post, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, is a little misleading because it turned out to be Dinner at Tiffany’s, or more accurately, Dinner at the Blue Box Cafe at Tiffany’s. The Cafe honors the romance of the 1961 film starring Audrey Hepburn. Tiffany’s was the romantic setting where the lovely Audrey Hepburn went each morning with a pastry and cup of coffee to have breakfast as she window-shopped. You might add Breakfast at Tiffany’s to your movie viewing list if you’ve missed it. Moon River and its lilting melody will have a new meaning for you!

Birthday

I recently took my girlfriend out for her birthday. Her choice for dinner was The Blue Box Cafe located on the top floor of the building that houses the famed Tiffany store.

Tiffany & Co.

Not having been to Tiffany’s before, I enjoyed each room’s large spaces; needless to say, the jewelry really shone! As you may know, Tiffany & Co. is renowned for its exquisite jewelry collection. The beauty of their pieces lies not only in their impeccable craftsmanship but also in the quality of the gemstones used. Brilliant diamonds, rare sapphires, and vibrant emeralds are sourced from the most trusted suppliers, ensuring the highest-quality stones.

Tiffany Blue

So we then went to The Blue Box Cafe, and I seriously didn’t know what to expect. The Blue Box Cafe by Daniel Boulud is a more modern take on Tiffany’s dining experience. It has a seasonally inspired menu, including Breakfast at Tiffany’s Afternoon Tea and an all-day à la carte selection. Peter Marino designed the cafe with a private dining area, café, and bar. It also features custom art installations and the signature Tiffany shade of blue.



Talking about Tiffany’s signature shade of blue, let’s check it out.

Salade de Saison

So, what did I decide to order?

I began with the bread (so yum!), a Salad De Saison with fresh seasoned vegetables, and a ginger-lemon vinaigrette dressing I requested on the side.

Valaille Rotie

Next, I ordered Volaille Rotie, chicken breast served with Tunisian couscous, Mediterranean vegetables, and harissa (which I also 🙂 asked for on the side).

And lastly, a cup of black American coffee.

Holly and Paul

I recommend eating at The Blue Box Cafe as an experience. I wasn’t keen on how they prepared the chicken, but the meal was delightful.

Let’s not forget a visit to the 5th floor to visit an Audrey Hepburn immersive exhibit to take us back to the days of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Audrey’s challenges as a country girl who moved to New York and is living the life of a downtown beatnik. If you can see the film, you’ll be enchanted by the chemistry between Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. They play Holly and Paul, respectively. Their onscreen romance is both playful and challenging as they navigate the complexities of love and relationships. Ultimately, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a timeless tale of love and self-discovery that has captured the hearts of generations of moviegoers.
