Tiffany & Co. has finally unveiled a renovation at its flagship store on Fifth Ave in New York and it includes the company’s first-ever dining stop called The Blue Box Café. While the film (and novel’s) protagonist Holly Golightly snacks on her breakfast pastry outside the famous shop, visitors can now head inside the luxury retailer to relax and enjoy some food. The store has unveiled its fully renovated floor, which will offer more than access to a snack: it is also home to the high-end company’s new luxury home and accessories collection of “elevated everyday objects” – which includes such items as a $1500 paper clip bookmark – and a baby boutique, silver hollowware, a selection of vintage books curated by Assouline and a Tiffany fragrance laboratory.

“Both the café and redesign of the Home & Accessories floor reflect a modern luxury experience,” said Reed Krakoff, chief artistic officer of Tiffany & Co in a statement. “The space is experimental and experiential – a window into the new Tiffany.”

The interior is filled with the famous “Tiffany Blue” – the colour of the boxes used to keep its incredibly expensive jewellery. According to the company: “the striking interior décor incorporates industrial details that evoke Tiffany’s craftsmanship and heritage. Playful and unexpected touches sit harmoniously alongside elegant finishes like herringbone marble and amazonite stone”.

So once you’re inside the beautiful café, you can get some food with high-quality and regionally-sourced ingredients. The menu is described as simple and will change through the seasons, but the dishes will be “a refined take on signature New York dishes”.
