Afternoon Tea | Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 0 No tags Permalink 0

We’re back at The Ritz-Carlton Central Park for afternoon tea ^_^

It’s been awhile since my last visit

….but I can always count on their spicy chai (pictured at top). Comes with cream and sugar in the pot, so velvety and warming. Let’s get start with the savories!

There’s egg salad with black truffles on pain de mie…

…and chicken salad with tarragon on seven-grain. 

A mini lobster and caviar roll with yuzu aioli. Brioche bun!

Rosemary ham with dijon and pickles on a warm cheddar scone.

Cucumber and dill with greek yogurt crème fraîche on pumpernickel.

The signature Ritz scones. Warm and giant scone dotted in plump raisins and baked with a crackling sugar crust.

Best devoured with clotted cream and preserves.

Let’s take a break with a new pot of tea. This is “T” Blend, a combination of Ceylon, Darjeeling, and Jasmine. 

And then onto the sweets!

There are custard cream puffs…

…and layered almond and raspberry cakes. 

Little tarts in chocolate…

…and banana.

And single-bite red velvet cakes topped with a whipped cream cheese frosting.

Till next time ^_^
