Tea time

NY, NJ and CT

No one does afternoon tea like the British—there's just something so posh and civilized about it. But since a bridal shower tea party in London probably isn't in the cards, here's the next best thing: afternoon tea at The London NYC. The menu ($40 per person), put together by Michelin chef Gordon Ramsay and his staff, is served on a tiered stand and includes finger sandwiches like egg and cress, scones with chantilly creme, pastries like opera cake, and tea. The tea parties can be held in one of the hotel's several chic, sophisticated dining spaces, including their more casual restaurant, MAZE (pictured), their formal dining room, Gordon Ramsay at The London, or their second floor private event area. The London NYC is located at 151 West 54th Street; call Sanda at 212-468-8709 to reserve space for a private event. —Lauren Matthews, editor, Brides New York
