The Plaza - Gluten Free Tea
Something my mom and I always do when she visits me is go to high tea. Ever since I studied abroad in London we have been obsessed with tea and and all the cute mini sandwiches that come with it. But being Gluten Free makes it hard for me to find accommodating places, let alone a scone which is the best part of the whole thing. But good news is that people realize how much of a demand GF items are now a days so they have started to offer special menu's for people like me.
The Palm Court at the Plaza has THE BEST tea in New York. They offer the whole deal scones, sandwiches, cheesecake the exact same menu as regular tea which is amazing so you don't lose any of the special pieces that make up a high tea. Plus this place offer Eloise Tea at the Plaza for little girls complete with pink cotton candy and mini tea pot, just adorable.
If you can only go to tea at one place in the city no matter GF or not I highly recommend the Palm Court to make any tea a very special occasion. Just make sure to make reservations since they fill up fast even a month in advance. But if you can't get in to the Plaza or not your vibe, take a look at my other GF tea recommendations for the city.
