Upstairs/Downstairs at Bergdorf Goodman


Every August, after traipsing the endless isles of the New York Gift Show, my gift to self is a leisurely stroll through Bergdorf Goodman and a lovely lunch at BG, the 7th floor dining room designed by Kelly Wearstler.  The soothing robin's egg blue and apple green color scheme mirror the green park/blue sky palette of the Central Park view.  This is a year-round oasis.

The salads are tantalizing; this lobster, crab and pink grapefruit concoction was simply délicieux!  And the Rosé Château d’Esclans “Whispering Angel” from Provence was the perfect accompaniment.

As always, the window displays DELIGHT – the Fall 2011 fashions are artfully poised between yards and yards of zipper garlands.  Inside, the most exquisite jewelry in the dreamiest of rooms dazzles and delights, then up up up to Shoes! Fashion! Lingerie! The coup of this jaunt being a Kiki de Montparnasse bra at 70% off!

Stay tuned for Papillon’s Uptown/Downtown short list coming soon…
