Burke in the Box
The dual-concept restaurant opened in 2005 and spans the 59th Street frontage of the world-famous Bloomingdale's department store and offers a stylish, full service Burke Bar Cafe on one side and a convenient Burke in the Box eat-in/take-out concept on the other.
Chef Jose Lavariega oversees the kitchen, where sandwiches, award-winning burgers, salads and small plates highlight the menus. Apres-shopping lunchtime favorites include Grilled Fish Tacos and a Large Chicken Market Salad replete with bacon lardons, beets, goat cheese and walnuts. "Knife and Fork" sandwiches and more traditional sandwich selections run the gamut here, as do sliders and the burger that the New York State Beef Council said was the best burger in the city - the Juicy Burker. More traditional dinner choices trend towards classic Burke Group cuisine, such as Wild Mushroom Risotto, Steak Frites and BBQ Miso Salmon.
This fashionable, newly renovated location also services all sorts of catering needs. Whether for vast social functions or small corporate meetings, the inspired cuisine is available to go for events of any kind, and the staff can manage every detail, down to supplying plates, forks and napkins. The team here specializes in offering Chef Burke's signature whimsical style and trail-blazing flavors for each and every order, for pick up or delivery.
Bringing together delicious, affordable fare, top-notch service and a festive atmosphere, David Burke at Bloomingdale's satisfies the cravings of the city's most discerning shoppers, visitors, and residents.
