I had a lovely luncheon at Cafe SFA the other day, the restaurant tucked into the corner of the shoe department at Saks Fifth Avenue. It’s actually quite a sprawling place, with bar-side seating at the front, a big open dining room and a seated balcony with views across midtown. The decor is kept simple – clean and mod enough to appeal to the Saks’ contemporary level shoppers and employees who dine their daily, but classic and comfortable enough for the loyal “ladies who lunch” crowd.
The food is equally simple yet decadent in taste. I had a salad, something with shrimp that I can’t recall the name of but it was absolutely scrumptious. My lunch dates had salads too, all equally tasty. At $25+ for a salad, Cafe SFA won’t become an everyday type deal, but it’s an excellent choice to keep in your backet pocket for future lunch appointments.
TIP: On your way out, stop by Charbonnel & Walker, the department store’s decadent chocolate cafe. One pink champagne truffle is the icing on the cake, only better.
