Lunch at NYC'S BG

I love decor, delicious food and a fabulous interior, so it's no wonder I was smitten with BG in NYC's Bergdorf GoodmanPretty Pink Tulips suggested lunch at BG to our group that attended the Nate Berkus show together, read here and here. Since our visit in August, I've squeezed in a visit or two!

Kelly Wearstler worked her magic in this spot and it drips of fabulousness! Love the interior...it's chic, elegant and sophisticated...it's simply stunning! To eat at BG is too not only experience an attentive waitstaff, to indulge your palette, take peaks of Central Park via your window seat, but it is to enjoy KWID's interior design. 

You know you're in for a treat just from the view outside BG...
Inside the restaurant...
What are some of your favorite elements of this space? Have you experienced BG?

Yes have been its actually quite good (I remember the lobster pasta..yum) and its very pretty reminds me of an old fashioned european social salon/ladies lunch club...and of course the views are amazing. Love the pictures you took....its beautiful and whimsical at the same time!

I love BG (and Bergdorf's in general) - my sister and I meet there occasionally (when we're not meeting at the museum). I always have the same salad - I really need to branch out!!

Signé Kelly Wearstler indeed. I really like those Pope Chairs, how I enjoy them! One thing I notice in every design by KW is the presence of an abstract metallic sculpture with Ard Decó flavor, the one in this restaurant is interesting, so is the matching chandellier. Bet you had decó intoxitation in BG. Thanks for sharing your pics Barbara, they are fabulous! Xo

I'm so glad you enjoyed it that day and have returned several times! NYC is full of fabulous restaurants, but BG is always my favorite spot for lunch. When Spring arrives, we need to meet there again!;)

Gorgeous! I love the yellow chairs and all the fabulous light fixtures!

Karen@StrictlySimpleStyle said...

I don't care how delicious the food is, if there isn't ambiance then I won't return to a restaurant. I can see why you loved BG. The corner with the diamond detail on the walls is fab-u-lous.

The Buzz said...

That lunch was such fun - the company was fantastic and so was the ambience. I'm with Q, I always have the BG salad so I promise to try something new the next time I'm there.

That looks like an amazing experience! I would love to eat there! I love everything about the designs, especially the seating and the gorgeous ceiling light fixture! Thanks for sharing. :) Kelly Wearstler never disappoints!

Style Attic said...

Being on the west coast I have not been to BG, but if I make it to New York you have given me reason to visit and have lunch there!! I love every single thing about the interior. Black and white, pops of yellow and lime, oh yes I love it all!!! KS

Marianne (Style For Living) said...

Oh, my goodness. I'm going to have to go there when I visit NY next time. I love every little bit of it!

M.A.the2nd said...

Lisa ... I LOVE it all!!!! So gorgeous and I especially adore the oversized chairs in blue and also the white chairs with the stylized backs and yellow leather! What did you all have for lunch? Can you post the menu? Maybe one day you could go to lunch with all the girls, take your laptop and we could do a skype sessions so I would feel like I was there!!!!

Beautiful post as always
hugs

My daughter and I just had lunch there over Thanksgiving, and it was such a treat...gorgeous decor!!

Heavenly Housewife said...

This restaurant was actually featured in Taschen's NY. I remember looking at some pictures and admiring those beautiful cacoon-like chairs. Stunning. But daaahling, what did you eat? Is the food as fab as the surrounds?

I remember when she first did this restaurant - I loved it like the first time I saw the Viceroy in LA 8-9 years ago. I love the color combinations, the elements - I haven't lunched here but I picture myself sipping champagne have lunch with friends. Love it. Lucky for you - you live near the city.

Beautiful Space. Thanks for showing images of it empty. Can't imagine the chairs being comfy but they sure are eye candy. Thanks for showing me where to lunch like the ladies!
