Looking to don your Hepburn shades, pearls, and dine in luxury? Breakfast at Tiffany’s will soon be a reality for Orange County residents and visitors! The new South Coast Plaza location will be opening this year, and it provides a beautiful feast for the eyes and the stomach.
Tiffany’s New and Improved South Coast Plaza Location
After Tiffany & Co. launched their first Blue Box Cafe in 2017 on Fifth Avenue in New York City, diners everywhere have been wondering when the elegant dining experience would come to a city near them. California residents can rejoice, because that day has finally arrived.
Tiffany & Co. is moving into a new South Coast Plaza space, which will double the size of it’s current store. They’re also adding the Blue Box Cafe which has been a mega-hit since it’s opening in NYC in 2017.
What Can Diners Expect from the Experience?
With elegant turquoise-and-white decor, and seating for 45, the diner promises a soothing and elegant experience for visitors. It’s menu will be similar to the Fifth Avenue location.
Per RobbReport, “Diners can expect a haul of American classics—chopped salads, club sandwiches and the likes—that showcase the finest locally sourced ingredients. Initially, the cafe will adhere to the local Covid-19 restrictions and offer limited indoor dining. Orange County restaurants were recently given the green light to reopen at 25-percent capacity indoors. However, Tiffany & Co. plans to run full services starting next spring.”
When Will the Cafe Open?
The OCRegister reports that the store will open in December. Per the OCR, “The entire Tiffany’s space in Costa Mesa will be 12,000 square feet with design features that include furniture in its signature blue hue, a Wheat Leaf wall crafted in carved stone, a custom chandelier made of hand-cast crystal, hand-embroidered murals and a portrait of Tiffany’s founder, Charles Lewis Tiffany, created by Orange County artist Andrew Myers.”
A Huge Year for Tiffany & Co
In November of 2019, Tiffany & Co. announced that it was going to be acquired by luxury mega-brand LVMH, owner of the Louis Vuitton, Hennessy, Bulgari, and Christian Dior brands. However, the deal was put on ice as the companies battled it out over terms of the acquisition.
Now, it appears that they’ve reached an agreement. USA Today reports, “‘We are as convinced as ever of the formidable potential of the Tiffany brand and believe that LVMH is the right home for Tiffany and its employees during this exciting next chapter,’ said LVMH president and CEO Bernard Arnault in a statement.
The buyout has been approved by the boards of both companies, and it’s expected to close early next year.
The two companies will settle pending litigation in Delaware Chancery Court. Tiffany had sued LVMH asking the court to make the luxury goods company abide by the merger agreement.”
But Wait, There’s More!
There will also be a special celebration to mark the first permanent west coast Tiffany’s diner. They will be previewing their Tiffany T1 bangle and ring in 18-carat rose gold with baguette diamonds for a limited time to celebrate the opening.
We can’t wait to enjoy the classic Tiffany & Co. elegance, combined with Orange County’s local flavors and atmosphere.
