Afternoon Tea - St. Regis
After reading all of the suggestions on this board, my wife and I went to afternoon tea at the St. Regis. We were hoping for a full experience: great tea, wonderful service, good nibbles, and we were not disappointed.
The cost is reasonably high - $45 per person - but you get several courses of food (a savory tart, some finger sandwiches, delicious scones and spreads, and petit fours) and an excellent tea suggestion. Service was very formal -- and could have been slightly more attentive -- but this was really a terrifc way to spend a relaxing Saturday afternoon.
