Menu: a la Carte

Inside Phillip Johnson's famed Lipstick Building, the Lipstick Café is a stylish café that caters to both the midtown business crowd as well as the sophisticated tourist stopping in for a brief respite from city shopping and museum going. Serving delicious and reasonably priced breakfast and lunch fare in the scaled-down, yet simple signature style of Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the Lipstick Café offers a wonderful alternative to the usual midtown hustle and bustle.

Monday through Friday, from 7 am to 3 pm, one can sit and enjoy fresh homemade croissants, brioches and muffins. Or try the buttery jelly doughnut, filled with a rich blackberry jam. Served with rich café au lait or espresso, this makes for an easy breakfast or quick early afternoon snack. From 11:45 to 3:00, lunch is served with offerings such as Seared Duck Breast Salad with Baby Greens & Tamarind Dressing, Spicy Shrimp with a Thai Salad of Rice Vermicelli, Grapefruit, Mint & Coriander and Goat Cheese, Roasted Tomato & Basil Galette. There is also a variety of sandwiches that are as easy to eat in the Café as they are at one's desk -- if need be. Choose from such options as Seared Lamb Loin on Sesame Roll with Basil Mayonnaise, Watercress & Tomato Salsa, Basil Egg
