New York City: The Palm Court
Feel like Eloise in The Palm Court at the legendary Plaza Hotel, where afternoon tea has been served for more than 100 years. Chef and Food Network star Geoffrey Zakarian is the culinary director for this elegant meal that features custom tableware and Bernardaud china made exclusively for The Plaza. The spread includes lox and bagels with pickled cucumber, cream cheese and house-cured pickles, as well as deviled organic egg salad with dill pickle relish. One thing that has changed since tea service began? Vegan and gluten-free menus are now available for tea lovers with dietary restrictions.
