David Burke’s bustling street-level restaurants are popular in-store dining stops at Bloomingdale’s, but seasoned shoppers opt for the scenic route through housewares up the stairs to genteel Le Train Bleu. The long, narrow room is a replica of the 1870s French dining car from which it takes its name; starched linens cover two rows of tables; and walls and ceiling are padded with forest-green velvet accented with dark wood panels and round-cornered windows. The store’s signature brown bags can even be stashed in overhead metal storage racks. The menu ranges from updates on continental classics (Croque Monsieur, Steak Frites, Salade Nicoise) to simple new American fare (chopped salads, Maryland crab cakes, roasted Long Island duck).Brunch
