"tea party" type place in nyc ?

ofcourseitquacks Jul 6, 2007 02:25 AM

Anyone know of anywhere kosher in nyc that might do something like an old fashioned tea ? My girls are big enough now that I'd love to share that sort of thing with them, but I haven't heard of anything like that. Looking for some place that maybe has desserts or little finger sandwhiches, possibly with leaving a pot of tea or cocoa at the table. Suggestions ?

    OK...this is a stretch--not high tea, but it meets some of your qualifications. Have you already taken them to Chocolate by the Bald Man? Yes, it's a chain, definitely not a teacup-and-pinky place -- other negatives are it's touristy, expensive, has occasionally very bad service; positives are it's kosher (at least, that's what I read) there's dessert, hot cocoa,& sandwiches that can be cut into squares. Though I prefer the chocolate at City Bakery, I liked the cocoa fine though it's very sweet stuff. Our ten-year-old (boy) loved it when it first opened. I'm assuming if you call ahead they might be able to do something different for you.
    Here's the link.

        Everything but the ham is kosher. :-)

        Seriously, the chocolate is kosher, but the restaurants are not.

      it does not have that classic country inn look
      but it has, tea, desserts, and people watching.

      My Most Favorite Dessert Co
      120 W 45TH St NYC (212) 997-5130

      another tea & finger food idea could
      be any place that sells good sushi.

      probably any time to take your kids out
      and don't order from the kids menu is a
      great way to still expand their pallet.

          I don't know if there is a kosher equivalent to a white gloves mother/daughter "high tea"
          in the Five Boroughs.
