I love these high-back whisper chairs, so when making reservations for two, I make sure to request them. These by the window have views out to Central Park, but we sat further inside where the blue whisper chairs are. The room is light and airy with lovely details that elevates the tea service experience.
It was solidly good, although when the three-tiered tray was dropped off at our table, I had to ask the server to describe what was on the trays.
Somewhere along the line, the server not describing what is being served has become a pet peeve of mine.
These dainty, two-bite tea sandwiches are excellent. Tasty, fresh, and at six per person, plenty to keep you full.
On the second tier, scones. One per person, which is a great portion size. I love the extra touch with the BG logo on the butter cover. I knocked off a star since I don't like jarred preserves.
Four little sweets per person and they were good, but nothing was spectacular.
At $38 per person, this is a great afternoon tea experience. It's one of my favorites and is number six on my list.
