NM Cafe Restaurant Review

: If you want to take a break from shopping and desire something a bit classier than the food court, you can’t do much better than this handsome, contemporary café inside Neiman Marcus. The waterfall-laden patio is a particularly nice place to recharge with a glass of wine or cocktail, paired with a well-composed salad or relatively healthy plate of salmon. Soups are generally worth sampling, and lighter favorites include a lightly dressed crab salad with apple wood-smoked bacon and papaya; and Little Gem lettuce layered with seared ahi, artichokes, fingerling potatoes and kalamata olives in a lemon vinaigrette. After picking at a salad, you might feel you’ve earned a treat, like flourless chocolate cake. Presentations, which often include edible flowers, are what you might expect from this venerable, elegant retailer.
