Blingy Bites! Swarovski's Crystal Cafe Is Perfect For Some Holiday Sparkles

swarovski-cafe-kristall-big
The holidays are all about sparkles, so color us amped when it comes to the newest offering to the chic eat scene in SoHo. Leave it to the Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED boutique to debut Café Kristall, a jewel box of a restaurant on street level, plus a shimmering lounge downstairs. With famed chef Kurt Gutenbrunner on board—the mastermind behind Michelin-starred Wallsé, plus Cafe Sabarsky and Blaue Gans—you know the menu will be Austrian at its finest. Look for Weisswurst with sweet mustard and warm pretzel, Wiener Schnitzel with parsely potatoes, lingonberries, and cucumber salad, and, of course, Apple Strudel. The decor is perfekt (that's German for perfect!) for a present buying break—the thousands of Swarovski crystals dotting the walls, plus sparkly ottomans, cascading sculptures, and drinks like the Lavender Amethyst Martini make for one white Christmas. We dare you to walk out without buying more than just food.
Café Kristall, At the Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED Store; 70 Mercer Street (at Broome Street); 212-274-1500.
