I had a few days to check through my photo files. I came across my afternoon tea at The Lowell Hotel from November of last year, and realized I forgot to work on the post for you! Being the sole person who works on this blog, and having a full time job as well, sometimes things fall through the cracks! I am so sorry! As you know I love attending Afternoon Teas in the city. There are so many hotels that offer this service, and it is a very nice way to spend an afternoon. I was joined by the lovely Marta from the super fabulous website Baker's and Artists for some tea and sandwiches. The above photo was the gorgeous flower display in the lobby!
The Lowell is located East 63rd Street and Madison Avenue. It is a really lovely boutique hotel which offers suburb customer service. Your tea is held in the Pembroke Room, how relaxing does this look? I really love those chairs!!
Everything here is very elegant and you feel like you are stepping back in time.
The lovely tray of sandwiches and desserts. When Marta and I get together. there are always lots of photographs being taken.
Maine Lobster Salad, Cucumber and Watercress, Deviled Quail Egg Salad, Scottish Smoked Salmon with
Dilled Crème Fraiche, and Smoked Turkey with Arugula and Homemade Mayonnaise.
The scones were very good and unlimited which I have never seen before at any tea. They were served warm with your choice of selections below. Devonshire cream is my favorite!
How wonderful does this look?
I took some of the macarons home along with the petit fours for my Mom to taste.
I thought the afternoon tea here was very delightful. The cost of the afternoon tea varies from $44.00 to $79.00 per person. The Lowell serves in The Pembroke Room breakfast, afternoon tea, pre-theater dinner 5pm to 7pm, brunch 1130am to 230pm on Saturday and Sundays. The setting here is so extraordinary and you really can relax and enjoy the atmosphere. A great place to celebrate a birthday as well with their afternoon tea, such a memorable time.
