The Duchess Dines . . .

BG @ Bergdorf Goodman, 21 Club, Bar Americain

Yesterday the Duchess completed an eating marathon. It all started with a post-shoe-and-fur-shopping nosh with the Empress at BG @ Bergdorf Goodman. Deviled eggs, roasted mushroom tart, champagne. It's lucky for the Duchess that the champagne came after the shopping spree (during which she was surprisingly restrained) and not after (still lusting after those Silvia Fiorentina shoes that she passed over).

BG, on Bergdorf's 7th floor, was decorated by the one of the queens of the Los Angeles decorating scene, Kelly Wearstler. It has a more glamorous vibe and a more restrained color palette than Ms. Wearstler-designed California-based restaurants (a la Whist at The Viceroy in Santa Monica).

After a frolic and detour with the Empress down to Chelsea (see today's "The Duchess Observes"), the Duchess headed back uptown to grab dinner with an old friend at Bar Americain. En route she was distracted by 21 Club, and popped in for a sip or two.

The Duchess finally braced herself for the bitter cold and made her way over to Bar Americain for a later dinner of Kentucky ham salad (nothing but the best for the Duchess!) and a bourbon praline profiterole for dessert. Very yummy.
