'Breakfast at Tiffany's' Served Up By Tru!

Holly Golightly would be jealous.
Tru gave 312DD the scoop on its brilliant collaboration with the Tiffany's location on the Mag Mile over the weekend.
Executive Chef Anthony Martin cooked a four-course "Breakfast at Tiffany's" feast at the store Saturday morning.

After being greeted at the door with mimosas before the store opened, the three out-of-town guests (who won the breakfast as part of an all-Chicago auction package at last year's Naples Winter Wine Festival) shopped around the downstairs cases before being escorted to a private table set up in the second-story window overlooking the Mag Mile.
Working out of the store's back kitchen, Martin prepared a delicious menu inspired by the store's famous jewelry collection.

Guests noshed on silver-pressed egg cups (in the signature Tiffany box, of course) filled with slow-cooked scrambled eggs, creme fraiche and California sturgeon caviar; buttermilk biscuits in Karabuta pork sausage gravy and smothered in gold leaf; green apple smoked Scottish salmon with Champagne dill sauce, garnished with salmon roe; and for dessert, a myriad of fruit, carved into jewel-like pieces and topped with whipped cream.
