BG Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Real ladies who lunch consider a number of factors before choosing a place for their favorite meal. They like their dining room tables spacious---the better to accommodate overstuffed handbags---and, with precious furs to entrust, their restaurant staffs should be attentive to a fault. BG, the restaurant on the seventh floor of Bergdorf Goodman, covers these bases and more. A quiet aerie overlooking Central Park, the place is awash in muted yellows and greens befitting a classic Park Avenue six. The menu plays it equally safe. Appetizers include various chef’s salad riffs, with crisp, gently-cooked vegetables in wafer thin sheets. The entrées, mostly upscale comfort food, include pan-roasted chicken with tarragon sauce and sliced duck breast with haricots verts. For the more extravagant shopper there’s a fine lobster napoleon with chanterelles. You won’t find many surprises---unpleasant or otherwise---just classics well done. Think of BG as the Martha Stewart of in-store dining: classy, conservative and unflappable.
