David Burke at Bloomingdale's
Chef David Burke studied at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America before earning a glowing reputation as chef at the River Café and later the Park Avenue Café. He would parlay those experiences into his own entrepreneurial success, opening the celebrated davidburke & donatella on 61st Street in 2003, and then taking over the 59th Street façade of the iconic Bloomingdale's department store. David's intent in opening his eatery in Bloomingdale's was to fuse different sensibilities. On one side, the Burke Bar Café offers an accessible but slightly more elegant dining experience. Alternatively, shoppers in a hurry can step over to the other side of the historical frontage. There, a streamlined, more cafeteria-like mood prevails at Burke in the Box, which swaddles the award-winning cuisine in snazzy takeout boxes. The menus at both establishments change regularly and abound with American fare updated by exciting twists, such as crispy fish tacos with pineapple-guacamole salsa or mac 'n' cheese infused with bacon and lobster.
