Bergdorf Goodman's new seventh-floor restaurant, BG. Plus, the next winter hat, a sweater for him worth stealing back, how to pack heat...


The Best Bet
With her bold, colorful designs for homes, stores, and boutique hotels like Avalon and Estrella, decorator Kelly Wearstler has nudged her native Los Angeles toward a luxe playfulness that’s equal parts historic reference and sleek modernism. For Bergdorf Goodman’s new seventh-floor restaurant, BG (her East Coast debut), Wearstler “wanted to create a sense of going from one room to the next in someone’s home.” She painted the space in cool blues and greens with black accents and added hand-painted de Gournay chinoiserie wallpaper and low-slung eighteenth-century-style chairs for post-shopping comfort (754 Fifth Ave., at 58th St.; 212-872-8977).
