Perched on the ninth floor of Barney’s store, Fred’s is one of the perfect lunch spots in the city. While you eat a delicious meal, you can watch the ladies, dressed in Chanel and Prada, with all their shopping bags taking their lunch break from their busy shopping day and some suited men, who came for a quick lunch.

You have few random tourists with the family, sharing a pizza while they ask their kids to behave.

That day, my mom, sis and I represented the ultimate shopaholics, at a well deserved break from our mission. While we sipped our bubbles to celebrate our “hard work”, I shared a winter salad with my mom and ate my eggs benedict… come on it is Sunday and I have to have my eggs benedict fix ;)

She had the Marsala sauce veal; it was very tasty but the portion was too large…

My sister, started with the lobster bisque followed by a burger. You know the kind of burger that looks juicy and yummy.
The only low point? Their crispy bacon, it had no smoky taste, actually no taste at all!!!!

The star dishes of the restaurant seemed to be the pizza and the french fries. I guess i will need to taste them next time :) .

The service was correct, not exceptional. It would have been better if our waiter didn’t disappear all the time. The crowd was composed of professional shoppers like us and some families…

Overall, with the risk of repeating myself, Fred’s at Barney’s is one of the best spots for lunch while you shop in upper east side NY!!!!
