the ins and outs of breakfast at tiffany's
the day is finally here! yes, that's right, i'm sharing all of the details from my fabulous morning having breakfast with andrea at the blue box café back in february! oh yeah, you heard that correctly...february.
so disregarding my blatant laziness on posting this, i wanted to be sure i walked you all through how to get reservations at the coveted restaurant and how to channel your inner holly golightly all at the same time! for starters, the reservations. of course andrea and i had an advantage because we live in nyc so we had very little obstacles to plan around but we knew we wanted to get there right as the restaurant opened. reservations are all done on their website and open up at 9am, 30 days before. so naturally i set my alarm for 8:55am (just like signing up for classes in college) and refreshed the page until 9am. thankfully the 10am reservation slot popped up and i snatched it faster than a 70% off tv during a black friday sale! and while there is technically a waitlist if all of the slots are full, the probability that something will open up is slim because the tables are so limited. so if you're not from nyc but know you'll be planning a visit, mark your calendar for reservations 30 days in advance!
once we secured the reservations, it was onto the most important part: finding the most holly-approved outfit! while i may have passed on the statement necklace and tiara, i was sure to add a little sparkle in my earrings and wore my everyday tiffany ring to go with my classic little black dress. while my outfit may have been perfect for holly herself, it was most definitely not perfect for the weather that day as the temperatures were around 20 degrees with 12mph winds...so you can imagine how excited we were to actually get inside!
once we ran to the opening doors and headed up in the elevator, the doors opened and around the corner was a beacon of tiffany blue decorations and we knew we were in the right place. the menu consisted of three options: a set breakfast ($29), lunch selection ($39), and a tea option ($49) with a few à la carte options. we instantly gravitated towards the breakfast option because duh! the food was fresh and light so i didn't feel stuffed: perfectly leaving room for the blue box cake for dessert!
to be honest though, the cake looked better than it tasted but so worth the $35 for the photos...gotta do it for the gram! we truly only took a few bites of the cake and shared the remaining slices with the fabulous ladies at the table next to us who were on vacation from london!
