More on this soon, but afternoon tea at Pembroke Room inside The Lowell is magical. Many NYC tea spots are in large hotels or individual restaurants, but Lowell is a small landmarked hotel on 63rd St. It was built in 1927, and the waiters that serve tea here have done it for years. Tradition. And such finesse. The tea room is secluded on the 2nd floor, an opulent gem. I can’t picture any other place quite like this.
Drinking the house-blend tea – a combination of Ceylon, Darjeeling, and Jasmine teas. Tiny lobster salad sandwiches, salmon and caviar pinwheels, perfect deviled quail eggs, three types of sweet scones, petit fours and bergamot-infused chocolate cones.
