Cuppa Tea Luv?
We had a little Cheap and Chic get-together last night and since I'm fighting a cold, I ordered a cup of tea. We were at an Irish place so I thought they'd make a decent cup. Sadly, it was cold, weak and -- served in a coffee cup! Horrors! Serious tea drinkers will understand my displeasure.
This made me think of one of my favorite places in The City ... Tea and Sympathy on Greenwich Ave. They know how to brew great cup of tea and they have a great menu. Most lunch dishes are under $10 unless you want to treat yourself to High Tea. It is all terribly British. They offer catering, tea over the Internet and have a store next door - A Salt and Battery.
