Afternoon Tea
The iconic Palm Court at The Plaza hotel with a complete renovation helmed by Master Architect Thierry Despont. The Palm Court showcases classic American savory menus from morning to evening, while Despont has brought the grand feeling of Central Park indoors, creating an ambiance that feels warm, private and glamorous. Bespoke furnishings provide a relaxed, yet elegant setting well-suited for either a professional breakfast meeting or an evening of cocktails crafted by mixologist Brian Van Flandern. Afternoon Tea truly shines with custom tableware and china, a tea list with worldly depth, and of course, a bit of Eloise too. Pastry Chef Matthew Lambie creates unique dessert experiences that effortlessly combine both classic and modern elements, while staying true to the Palm Court grandeur. This elegant room marked with its stained glass dome and impressive height adds a touch of old New York to a very polished and modern sense of hospitality.

My medium rare steak was underdone. There were only 3 other tables dining and food was delivered quickly, but waited a long time to get wAitress attention for drinks and bill.

The Palm Court is beautiful, classy, and while the tea and champagne and food were delicious, they were not worth the insane price that was charged. The service seemed condescending when I asked for tap water (they chuckled a bit as if I couldn’t afford better), and didn’t take the time to explain the menu or teas as if we were supposed to know everything when we got there. After paying the bill, my boyfriend and I got up to leave and one of the waiters come rushing after me and shouts, “ma’am, did you pay your bill?!” since I am a younger woman and I’m assuming he thought we were doing some sort of dine and dash cause we couldn’t afford it? I don’t really know, he wasn’t even one of the men waiting on us. Everyone in the restaurant turned around and looked at me and it was embarrassing and rude the way he went about it. Nice way to exit from a $300 bill. Will not be going back.
