One of the most beautiful dining rooms in New York is located in the Carlyle Hotel. All the velvet, carpeting, and padded walls make it very quiet and the deep colors make it feel warm and relaxing. We started our meal with oysters and pâté, our favorite foods. And we ended the meal with some English Breakfast tea, our favorite beverage.
After our brunch our walking slowed from New York City pace to what we thought could be called Texas pace, nice and slow.
The hotel has a formal tea service, but the menu also lists more simple tea options. If your visiting the city and you've completely exhausted yourself, pop into the Carlyle Hotel.
