Afternoon Tea at Bergdorf Goodman

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 1 No tags Permalink 0

Afternoon tea on the 7th floor of Bergdorf’s ^-^

Tea here always beautiful and lively, and now it’s extra busy because tea at the Plaza is closed for renovations. Best time to visit is Monday at 3pm, right as service starts.

Compare and contrast with my last afternoon tea post from Bergdorf’s. It’s been awhile.

We’re drinking Nuit à Versailles Tea from Dammann Frères, a sencha base with bergamot and orange blossoms.

Let’s begin with smoked salmon…

…and a savory tart of prosciutto, mozzarella, and tomatoes…

…followed by sesame and ham. 

There’s a chicken salad with parsley…

…and turkey with cranberries.

A good egg salad makes me so happy…

…as does cucumber and cream cheese. Simple things!

Scones are dotted with cranberries and…

…served with clotted cream and Bonne Maman preserves. 

Macarons (in strawberry and pistachio) and…

…petit fours are outsourced.

While salted caramel tarts…

…fluffy coconut-lemon cakes…

…and dark chocolate bites with whipped ganache are made in-house ^-^
