Tiffany & Co's Blue Box Café To Reopen With Chef Daniel Boulud

Tiffany & Co. is nothing if not iconic; its signature blue boxes conceal jeweled delights that enchant the likes of the fictional Holly Golightly. Shopping at such an elegant store works up quite the appetite, and luckily, not far from the counters of delicate rings, brooches, and gleaming cufflinks is the Blue Box Café, which features delights of a completely different sort. And starting May 22, these memorable, fashionable, and Instagrammable Tiffany and Co. dining experiences will be crafted by Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud, according to The New York Times

The entire 10-story building was designed by architect Peter Marino, who selected artist Molly Hatch to design the ceramic artwork adorning the café's interior. Complete with a bounty of blue gift boxes hanging from the ceiling, the Blue Box Café will have breakfast and tea service and begin accepting reservations on May 15. But what about the menu?

Boulud was inspired by the classic 1961 film when creating the menu

Boulud's menu is French-inspired, appropriate for the luxury jewelry company, which was acquired by Paris-based LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton for the sum of roughly $16 billion two years ago. For breakfast service, Blue Box will feature three items, the most popular of which is sure to be Breakfast at Tiffany's, featuring oeuf à la coque, or scrambled eggs served in the eggshell, along with caviar, a croissant, and café au lait. For Tiffany's fans who prefer to dine later than socialite Holly Golightly's accustomed morning-after-the-night-before repast, Boulud has also dreamed up heavenly afternoon tea selections.

Afternoon tea will feature in-house pastries, along with a selection of savory sandwiches, accompanied by a custom Tiffany tea blend. The Blue Box Café will also offer an all-day seasonal menu with selections like a Wagyu burger and lobster salad. The newly reopened cafe will have a private dining area as well as a bar. If previous reviews of Blue Box Café are any indication, reservations for breakfast and tea service are hot tickets and will require booking well in advance of dining.
