For a quiet oasis removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, enjoy a traditional afternoon tea at The Plaza Hotel’s Palm Court. Thanks to a renovation in 2013, the Palm Court features lush garden elements such as swaying palm trees, potted plants and an oval trellised bar anchoring the room. You can leisurely sip a Grand Lapsang Souchong, one of the Plaza’s finest and lightest teas. The tea is complemented perfectly by warm seasonal scones with Double Devonshire Cream, lemon curd and preserves. Other menu staples include caramel and chocolate sea salt macaroons, along with savory items such as roasted chicken salad and slow-roasted turkey with cranberry-mustard aioli.
