David Burke at Bloomingdales: after shopping fuel

Dear Food Diary:
There’s nothing better than finishing a great shopping day with great food. I guess I work close enough, that making the trek up for lunch isn’t so bad either. There’s always room in my closet for more shopping, just like there’s room in my tummy for yummy food.


FOR LUNCH
Carrying all those shopping bags and walking all over the store justifies splurging on calories and ordering a satisfying meal.

Lobster bisque is extra creamy, it has some shrimp mixed into it and a bit of sweetness from the apple essence. This could be a meal itself. The Chefster’s Asiago Truffle Fries are exactly like the description. Salty, crunchy, fragrant and very addicting.

Big Pretzel Panini has a soft pretzel bread filled with chicken, melted cheddar cheese, bacon, tomato and grain mustard. It’s so big I always have to share it.

Everything I love about soft pretzels but enhanced. I don’t know if I want bread for my paninis anymore, this is a tough one. 


FOR DINNER
Though I’ve never went for their regular dinner, I’ve been to a couple of their special Beverage Series nights. From their first beverage series to my favorite riesling collection and a couple in between, food has always been solid and generous. The prices have gone from a steal of $39 to about $50. But even if you don’t get a seat at these one night events, they offer a $30 prix fixe dinner every night (3 courses)
