  1. For an interesting, and, somewhat historic option, you might try The Russian Tea Room ( They do a "High Tea" and a "Children's Tea" there, and though I am no expert in these things, I thought it was actually very nice. I went out of curiosity with a fellow tea loving friend of mine, and had a great time. Somewhat pricey, but not off-puttingly so. It's a very interesting space, and a definite memory maker, I would think, for two young ladies.

      I second the Russian Tea Room, particularly as they do a specific Children's Tea. There's also the Plaza (your girls will like the Eloise aspect).
