Now you can really have Breakfast at Tiffany's

Speaking of luxury, your morning joe at Tiffany's will cost you far more than Holly Golightly's street-cart fare.

The eatery - dubbed The Blue Box Cafe - is part of the fourth-floor renovations at 727 Fifth Ave., which incorporates "nearly 15-foot-high light chains, created by the Paris-based duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec" as well as a portrait of Charles Lewis Tiffany that "was commissioned and rendered with 8,000 painted screws", according to a news release. The restaurant will be decked out in Tiffany's signature blue.

"Both the café and redesign of the home and accessories floor reflect a modern luxury experience", Reed Krakoff, Tiffany's chief artistic officer, said in a statement. That fantasy can now come a reality, as a new restaurant has opened at the flagship NY store.

Breakfast at Tiffany's is based on the Truman Capote novella about a country girl who moves to NY and joins high society. Servers in bow ties and crisp white shirts glide around the tiny jewel-box-like space carrying precious, modernist color-blocked china - and admonishing anyone they believe has ventured past the (actual) velvet rope ahead of their turn.

If you're after a little more than just breakfast, cakes and patisserie start at $36 (£27), while the Fifth Avenue Salad comes topped with lobster and afternoon tea is an obvious highlight.

Week 11's best top-10 showdown?
It sounds illogical, but the story of the CFP selection committee's second rankings never was going to be the top four (or five). It would also help if nobody among Oklahoma, TCU, Miami and Wisconsin won their conference championship.

Breakfast is a flat $29 per person and $39 at lunch - botincluding a starter and main course.

Twitter is already lining up.

Despite the popular association with eating breakfast at Tiffany's, the Blue Box Cafe is the store's first foray into dining.

The store says the new café will help Tiffany's shoppers feel right at home during the busy holiday season, but in case anyone wants to take some of that cozy luxuriousness to-go, there's always Tiffany's newly launched upscale home and accessories line, which features such finery as a $350 straw or a $9,000 ball of yarn.
