Daniel Boulud is returning to his roots with his latest venture, and it has a sparkling twist. He’s now at the helm of the reimagined Tiffany & Co Blue Box Café, which is officially open in one of New York’s most iconic neighbourhoods.
Boulud, who is Michelin-starred, will offer a seasonally-inspired daytime menu, which includes breakfast and tea. His menu comes as Tiffany reopens the Blue Box Café, complete with a private dining area and bar with art installations.
Of course, the collaboration is a coming together of two iconic names, Tiffany & Co. for their jewelry, blue boxes and connection to the book and movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Chef Daniel Boulud, who brings his delicious takes on French cuisines to iconic eateries in New York City, Toronto and beyond.
The restaurant is officially opening to the public beginning May 22nd and will be nothing short of Instagrammable, chock-full of the fashionable Tiffany blue hue that has become famous across the globe.
Of course, Boulud was inspired by the timeless 1961 film, starring Audrey Hepburn and written by novelist Truman Capote (who also wrote the original book), when creating the menu. There’s even an item on the menu named after it, and the Breakfast at Tiffany’s,
For breakfast service, Blue Box will feature three items, the most popular of which is sure to be Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which showcases oeuf à la coque, or scrambled eggs served in the eggshell, along with caviar, a croissant, and café au lait. For a lunchtime treat inspired by the main character, socialite Holly Golightly, diners can opt for a selection of tea (including a custom Tiffany tea blend) alongside pastries made in-house, sandwiches, a wagyu burger and lobster salad.
Just as the last iteration required, the new, LMVH-acquired version will likely require reservations well in advance of the actual desired dining date.
The Blue Box Café is located on the 6th floor of the Tiffany location at 727 5th Avenue in New York.
