The menu is extensive and boasts a breakfast for champions, but the highlight is the tea. From sandwiches and savories to scones to pastries and sweets, a meal at The Palm Court at The Plaza is a must. The Peekytoe Crab Salad with Green Apple, Cucumber, Black-Truffle Oil, Grain-Mustard Aioli, and Pretzel Crostini is not to be missed—nor is the Foie Gras Torchon with Sweet-and-Sour Shallots, Cracked Hazelnuts, Fig Jam, and Toasted Brioche. And don’t forget to try the teas: 25 loose-leaf Palais de Thés selections, including eight Grand Cru selections.
Our thoughts? Sweeten an afternoon of skating at Wollman Rink in Central Park with a pot of peppermint tea and a salted-caramel ganache tart. (Maybe a glass of Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial Rosé…) Be sure to say, “Hello!” to Eloise for us!
