Tiffany & Co. (Instagram) has ushered in a new era of opulence as they proudly introduce the region’s first-ever Blue Box Café. Situated within the confines of Dubai Mall’s Grand Atrium, this establishment is an emblem of the house’s distinction as a foremost luxury lifestyle jeweler.
The café’s interior resonates with the ambiance of the renowned Blue Box Café, housed within Tiffany & Co.’s iconic Fifth Avenue store – The Landmark. Featuring a 41-seat dining area, the floor is bedecked with bespoke concrete tiles adorned with whimsical multicolor accents conceived by Peter Marino. A striking centerpiece, reminiscent of a chandelier, suspends Tiffany Blue boxes above custom-designed furniture, including cast glass tables and Tiffany blue striped chairs embellished with exclusive monograms. The decorative scheme is further elevated by plate wall art and the “What Matters” painting from Richard Prince’s “Tiffany” series, set against fabric-clad accent walls in Tiffany Blue shades.
The café’s exterior carries forward Tiffany’s legacy of crafting captivating window displays. Passersby are enticed to marvel at the enchanting window exhibits featuring exquisite high jewelry creations or even peer through the glass frames into the café itself. This timeless allure of Tiffany’s window displays is immortalized in the iconic film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” where the lead character, Holly Golightly, is bewitched by the flagship store’s Fifth Avenue window display in New York.
The Blue Box Café entices the palate with a French-inspired twist on New York classics. Developed in partnership with the RIKAS Hospitality Group and inspired by Tiffany & Co.’s New York heritage, the menu presents three signature culinary experiences for an elevated daytime dining affair: the effortlessly chic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” a magical “Afternoon Tea at Tiffany’s,” and a sumptuous all-day dining experience infused with delicate French nuances.
Every delectable dish is presented on exquisite Tiffany T True dinnerware in the signature Tiffany Blue hue. Drawing inspiration from the Tiffany T True jewelry collection, this home collection features a sleek T motif, a hallmark of the House. Crafted from Limoges porcelain, each piece is graced with a golden hand-painted geometric interpretation of the Tiffany T True motif on the rims. From freshly baked croissants and viennoiseries to the iconic “Café Tiffany” Black Angus Tenderloin, guests embark on a culinary journey that’s distinctly Tiffany.
The Blue Box Café joins a prestigious collection of UAE’s most distinguished award-winning restaurants and cafes, all curated by the RIKAS Hospitality Group.
