The quintessential New York experience of Afternoon Tea originated in 19th Century Britain, and became a favorite custom among high society in Russia and Europe. It evolved as a mini meal to stem the hunger and anticipation of dinner; which typically occurred at 8 pm for the upper class. Afternoon Tea is traditionally composed of sandwiches (usually cut delicately into 'fingers'), scones with clotted cream and jam, sweet pastries and cakes.
Ideal for a pre-theatre treat, an outing with friends, or a special occasion, Afternoon Tea at The Russian Tea Room is an enchanting, transporting experience.
Classic, Vegetarian, Gluten-free and Children’s Menus available.
