From street food to stylish gastronomic haunts, New York City is brimming with fresh flavours worth discovering. Here are the places to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Tiffany & Co. Blue Box
Breakfast at Tiffany's? Yes, please. Tiffany & Co. has just opened the first Blue Box Cafe, sitting pretty on the fourth floor of the jeweller's flagship store in New York. Serving the iconic coffee and croissant — from the cinematic creation that is Breakfast at Tiffany's featuring Audrey Hepburn — along with a separate breakfast and lunch menu, expect to dine amid the maison's signature Tiffany blue hue, marble and a view of Central Park.
The Supermoon Bakehouse is New York's latest buzz-worthy food fix. With treats including the banana split croissant and the black sesame triple black donut, this bakery has a legion of instagram fans and lines outside the door, which Buro 24/7 Singapore's Editor-in-Chief Norman Tan discover. Be sure to discover the super Supermoon Bakehouse tucked away on 120 Rivington Street on the Lower East Side.
The popular celebrity go-to brunch spot — think Kanye West, Taylor Swift and Brad Pitt — is known for serving signature breakfast dishes including french toast, eggs benedict and buttermilk pancakes. Sarabeth's is located in five locations around the city and also serves lunch, dinner, dessert and brunch.
