Speaking of Reasonable

BG is great lunch in a pinch. The women are happy because they're already there. The men are happy because the women are happy. Take the escalator to the 7th floor, eyes open, and when you sit, sit with your back to the window... the view is even better.

Two young ladies sitting next to us must have worked nearby. Looked great but spoke with a haughty inflection and paid with a gift certificate courtesy of a well-heeled client I presume. Couple tables over old partners dressed impeccably. Good conversation and looked like they'd been there before. Again and again. The gentleman wore tweed, tortoise shell spectacles and a repp tie that seemed to have some substance. They seemed to have some substance. I'd like for us to be that old couple someday.

FIRST LUNCH I EVER HAD WITH MY WIFE WAS AT BERGDORF (SHE WAS A YOUNG FASHION EDITOR IN TOWN FOR A SHOOT) WE HAD SPLIT PEA SOUP AND SHARED DEVILED EGGS. HEAVEN. I FELL IN LOVE.
