"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".

Vanity Fair reports that Tiffany & Co. has finally copped to the unbelievably obvious tie-in they could make to the iconic film Breakfast at Tiffany's, starring the late beloved actress Audrey Hepburn. The simple menu - which will change and evolve through the seasons - is a refined take on signature NY dishes, reinvented to be uniquely Tiffany. That fantasy can now come a reality, as a new restaurant has opened at the flagship NY store.
The Blue Box Cafe is Tiffany's first restaurant, timed to the release of the brand's line of "everyday objects", including a $350 gold vermeil insane straw and a $1,500 sterling-silver "coffee can". "The space is experimental and experiential - a window into the new Tiffany".
Breakfast and lunch are $29 and $39 respectively, with two courses each, according to Eater.com, which reviewed the menu. High tea, featuring a variety of hot tea options and a spread of finger sandwiches, is $49.
Twitter is already lining up. The fourth floor is also home to Tiffany's Home and Accessories collection, which recently launched an "Everyday Objects" collection featuring a $1,500 silver coffee can, $250 straw, and $95 china paper cups.
Blue Box opens to the public Friday, Nov. 10 and will be open during regular store hours (10 a.m.to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m.to 6 p.m. on Sunday) - so you cannot only have breakfast and lunch at Tiffany's, but an early dinner, too. "I want to sit there and feel like Holly Golightly, finding love, enjoying my life and enjoying NY".
