The iconic atrium at the Plaza returns after six months of renovation with a focus on breakfast and afternoon tea. Helmed by Iron Chef alum Geoffrey Zakarian (Town, Country), the revamped restaurant features a larger indoor garden below its soaring stained-glass dome, including oversize potted greens, ceiling-high palm trees and an ivy-covered trellis. Hints of Zakarian’s Armenian-American upbringing come forward on the menu—see Middle Eastern–inspired dishes like shakshuka, a Tunisian-Israeli breakfast of pita bread and poached eggs doused in a spicy, cumin-tomato sauce. Afternoon tea service, a collaboration with Palais des Thés, features leaves from across the globe such as London Early Grey (bergamot, cornflower), Geisha green tea (cherry blossom) and Mekong black tea (pear, mint). A tribute to the hotel’s literary heroine, the Eloise tea includes a collection of childhood-favorite sandwiches and savories like bite-size grilled cheeses, chocolate mousse and even cotton candy.
