Brunch at Bergdorf Goodman’s BG Restaurant
Brunch at Bergdorf Goodman should be one of your bucket list places to go in NYC. I can’t help but sometimes think a lot of the made-popular-by-movies/shi-shi places are over-hyped but I’ve been to BG Restaurant once for my birthday and recently for my friend/cousin/fashionista extraordinaire’s birthday (Hi Heba!) and it has never failed to satisfy. Both elegant and delicious. Plan in advance though for a reservation — it’s not always easy to get a table for brunch!!
Sun-dried tomato gnocchi
Special: Fruits with waffle, scrambled eggs
Carmelized white chocolate bread pudding
Warm brown butter almond cake
Recommend: The seared sea scallops (I didn’t realize I liked scallops until this place!) and the brown butter almond cake.
Plus, it’s always fun to peruse all the lovely Chanel bags I can’t afford right after.
Occasion: Celebrating Heba’s existence
(Out of three stars)
Ambiance: *** (Classy and elegant. A good balance of formal as you would expect from Bergdorf Goodman, but still light. Plus monogrammed BG chairs FTW)
Service: *** (very attentive staff)
Would I go back?: Yes to impress.
