Breakfast at Sotheby's
It's not the most obvious place to have breakfast at, since Sotheby's is an auction room, not a restaurant. But our friend's research led us to New Bond Street 34, London, UK. He had arranged a table for five, in this unique setting.
What a joy it was, to see the rich come in and out, debating with their financial advisers. After all, £ 704,000 priced painting is not an impulsive buy.
So we enjoyed the latte macchiatos, the velvety smoked salmon and buttery soft scrambled eggs on toast. The honey glazed home made granola, covered in rich Greek yogurt and topped with day fresh apple puree was a true delight. After all, whiping your mouth corners with a snow white logo embroidered Sotheby's napkin is a very delicate experience.
It doesn't always have to be breakfast at Tiffany's. Breakfast at Sotheby's was as satisfying and maybe a touch more interesting.
