Continuing with the theme of comfort food, do you have restaurants you return to time and time again? I must be a creature of habit as I have favorites that I love and return to again and again. One of those favorites is the restaurant on the seventh floor of Bergdorf Goodman in New York. The store is a regular stop for me on any visit to the City. I love to visit Carmen at the Chanel make up counter for a refresh on my look, there is the amazing shoe salon, and the restaurant. Note when you have a small and narrow foot, there is no better place to visit than the second floor of BG. This is also a favorite place to meet a friend for lunch. What better than a cozy restaurant where you can chat, laugh and generally catch up on everything happening.
The restaurant on the seventh floor is conveniently located with a wonderful view overlooking Central Park. I’ve been fortunate enough to have lunch in the prized whisper chairs and been there when it was so busy I was just happy to eat at the bar. The service and menu are excellent. The croque monsieur is a perennial favorite. Who doesn’t love a toasted ham sandwich covered in a cheese bechamel sauce? The greens that accompany the sandwich are the perfect complement to the meal. Other repeat favorites include the tomato bisque soup, the butternut squash soup, and the lobster mac-n-cheese. I’m usually full before I get to desert but have indulged in a serving of cookies. The menu also has several figure friendly options if you prefer. One thing that I love is that the portions are such that I don’t feel bad about opting for something like the lobster man-n-cheese.
The next time you are in the City, stop by and enjoy the restaurant on 7.
