The new gourmet market and cafe that opened with a bang, Gastronomie 491, recently launched Afternoon Tea. Their afternoon tea prix fixe includes a choice of eight different Le Palais des Thes tea, a selection of tea sandwiches, petite quiche, and mini pastries all for just $24. Mini pastries include a selection of croissants, scones, cookies, and Richart chocolates, of which Gastronomie 491 is the exclusive purveyor of their chocolates and macarons in New York. Afternoon tea will be served from 3-5pm daily and teas and menu items will also be available a la carte.
There will also now be live classical music on Saturdays from The Hopkins Entertainment Group during afternoon tea from 3-4:30pm. The group formed at Juliard in 2010 and plays music from Bach up to modern composers on cello and violin. Why do the British have to have all the fun? Join in on afternoon tea!
