One of my favorite places in NYC is Tea & Sympathy on Greenwich Avenue (not to be confused with Greenwich Street) in the West Village. I have been going to this haven for British ex-pats and Britophiles for a long time. My favorite thing to get is the afternoon tea for one with finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam and assorted cakes. It is truly a special treat. It used to be very hard to get seated here with a long wait, but these days when I come, I’m seated right away. On this latest visit with a friend, I got scones with clotted cream and they were deliciously wonderful, as always.
Of course, I got tea in these adorable tea pots.
My friend ordered the shepherd’s pie and enjoyed it very much.
