Mother's Day High Tea at Oscar Wilde

icon-location-pin Flatiron

Treat your mom like the queen she is during high tea at this Prohibition-style bar. In honor of Mother's Day, the price is only $30 per head for a delicious spread including rosemary olive oil scones with honey butter and apple marmalade and an array of finger sandwiches: cucumber and cream cheese; pimento cheese; smoked salmon with dill and crème fraiche; and smoked ham, Swiss cheese and Dijon aioli. Desserts follow while you sip your choice of SerendipiTeas. If the tea isn't strong enough for mom, order a “Gutter & Stars” signature cocktail (gin, elderflower liqueur, lavender bitters and sparkling wine) for an additional $12.

Time Out says

Treat Mom to a spa day!
