Description: Sophistication on the Seventh Floor of Bergdorf Goodman with afternoon into evening Central Park views. BG is a modern interpretation of the aristocratic social salon. Like a Park Avenue residence from the age of cosmopolitan glamour. Well-appointed and bright, the drawing room atmosphere is an intimate conversational setting for lunch, tea and early supper or cocktails. The light and sparkling menu is a modern take on classic New York fare.

Traveled to NYC with my mom and daughter. A friend who lives in Manhattan recommended BG Cafe. We made a reservation for High Tea. The view of Central Park was beautiful. The service, atmosphere and food quality superb. Definitely a highlight of our NYC trips.

On my previous visit to NYC I made a reservation to dine at this restaurant. When I arrived I told the host that I was from out of town and not familiar with the cuisine. He sat me in one of the two tables that had high backed chairs with a wonderful view overlooking Grand Army plaza. For lunch I... More

The Crab sandwich was THE BEST I have ever had. It is done right, fresh and so much crab. I would have just done lunch here every day had I known that this place was this good. I had tuna there and several other places in NY while I was there, and this place had the best seasoned fresh clean... More

The BG Restaurant was a pleasant experience for us. We wanted something light to eat while shopping, and decided to take a chance on the BG. It is located on the 7th floor of Bergdorf Goodman near Central Park. It is beautifully decorated with an old-school charm. Even though there were many diners, we felt we were in an intimate... More

I was looking for somewhere different to host a business lunch and this fitted the bill perfectly. The restaurant is on the 7th floor and overlooks Central Park. The store has an up market feel to it and that is replicated in the restaurant. It has a light and airy feel to it. The menu is varied and should cater... More

There is Breakfast at Tiffany's and Lunch at Bergdorf's! It is such a whimsically decorated place. had a wonderful "ladies' lunch" here with an old friend. It was the perfect location to feel completely in the heart of NYC! Had a divine kale and chick pea soup. They easily accommodated my request to change up the recipe and it was... More

Very good food, with lots of choices on the menu. Good service despite the fact that the restaurant was jam packed. Cute decor, and a fun place to sit and watch people while resting and enjoying a nice meal.
