While in New York, Chic Hunters really enjoyed the ambience and the food at the Kelly Wearstler-designed BG restaurant on the seventh floor of luxury emporium Bergdorf Goodman. BG has all the hallmarks of a Wearstler project: think Hollywood Regency. There are robin's egg blue chairs, high back cocoon-like seats in a subtle shade of yellow, glamorous spindly lighting fixtures, and the walls are covered in hand-painted wall paper. The food at BG is divine especially the beef au poivre, the tuna tartar, the crab salad etc. Expect to bump into live versions of Bergdorf Blondes with their Birkins and Verdura jewels lunching at BG.
After lunch, just outside the restaurant is the mini Kelly Wearster boutique filled with glamorous home accessories. Chic Hunters loves the gold and silver starburst tabletop accessories and the turquoise eggs. However, the pieces do not come cheap.
