Eat a Neiman Marcus popover

The food at any of Neiman’s tearooms is always more than fine, but the real reason to go is the pre-meal popovers. Crispy and flaky outside, warm and eggy inside, the puffy pastries are served with Neiman’s signature strawberry butter and a tiny cup of chicken consomme almost as soon as you sit down. There’s no real way to look couth while eviscerating your popover and getting crumbs all over yourself and the pristine white tablecloth, so don’t even try. Just give the judgmentally clean ladies lunching at the next table a good glare. Tip: sweet-talk your server into giving you an entire pot of the consomme.  Photography courtesy of Neiman Marcus
