In another case of life imitating art, classic movie fans can now literally have “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
Those wishing to follow in Audrey Hepburn’s high-heeled footsteps from the 1961 romantic comedy can book a table for breakfast — or lunch — at the famed jeweler’s Fifth Ave. store in New York City.
Aptly named The Blue Box Café because of the signature robin egg blue decor, the dining area will open its doors to customers on Friday.
Wannabe Holly Golightlys can twirl their pearls over sophisticated bites such as croissants, avocado toast, truffled eggs and smoked salmon bagels with schmear. The menu will change seasonally and lunch comes at a set price of $39 for a starter and main course, according to Vanity Fair.
The café is “yet another reason to visit our new fourth floor, and we hope it will draw customers up to experience the artfully composed home of Tiffany’s new luxury home and accessories collection of elevated everyday objects,” Richard Moore, the vice president creative director overseeing the project,” told Vanity Fair.
“Design of the space began from the idea of immersion in Tiffany — not only the feeling of being inside a blue box, but surrounded by Tiffany hospitality,” he added.
In the opening scene of the beloved Blake Edwards film, Hepburn can be seen pulling up in a taxi in front of Tiffany & Co., before looking in the windows and then strolling home to her apartment.
