Fred's is perched all the way up on the ninth floor, and remains a destination for ladies (or women) who lunch as well the men who love (or walk) them. The food is not your typical department-store grub, the menu a mix of Italian (pizza, pasta, and more), salads, and deli food. The man behind the food is Mark Strausman, who once cooked for Frédy Girardet, the gifted and undersung nouvelle-cuisine power player. Strausman also makes some of the city's best bagels. Old-guard Michelin discipline shows in his painstakingly made “Straussie’s,” available in plain, poppy, and everything flavors, Sundays only, and only in the refined, teacup-clinking department-store setting. The overachieving bagels boast an unmistakably dark, uniform bake. All available source material suggest that their size is akin to what you’d find on the Lower East Side 100 years ago, so the burnished-surface-area-to-crumb ratio makes for a bagel unlike any in town.


Delivery is available outside of the normal boundaries for a surcharge.
