Around Town: Cafe Luxembourg in ‘When Harry Met Sally’ – New York City

Lux 10

When Harry Met Sally (1989) is one of the greatest romantic comedies ever made. It’s effortless, hilarious, and filled with lots of restaurant scenes. Nora Ephron is a romantic comedy wizard and I can’t get enough of her work. During the film, Harry, Sally, and their two best friends go out to dinner at Cafe Luxembourg on the Upper West Side. In this scene, emotions are realized and relationships have changed. A very funny interaction between all of the characters takes place before they have even ordered their food.

Cafe Luxembourg, which opened in 1983, has a low-key vibe that made for an enjoyable breakfast. I ordered fresh squeezed orange juice, hot chocolate, and the Classic French Toast with fresh berries,‏ honey butter, and Vermont maple syrup. The French Toast was incredibly soft, and you just can’t go wrong with real syrup. This charming restaurant was a perfect backdrop for this double date, and it’s a must-visit for all you Nora Ephron/When Harry met Sally fans!
