The red booths and dark timber give even the most casual tea here a rather luxe French-style vibe. The best seat in the house is by the window to people-watch, while sipping arguably the best hot chocolate in town. If you’ve just hit the jackpot, splurge on the $450 Iranian oscietra caviar. Otherwise, stick to the excellent Croq’ Ferdinand – as lab of toast topped with gruyère cheese, Parma ham and mornay sauce – and a Nordic platter of wondrous lyric hand salty-sweet salmon, creamy salmon mousse and thick, fleshy cuts of herring, all served with chives, cream and fat globules of salmon roe. Our eggs Benedict was fatally flawed though by a thoroughly overcooked poached egg.
