New York Afternoon Tea at The Grand Lobby
Longing for a getaway? Leisure travel might still be a distant possibility, but those with an appetite for adventure can visit The Grand Lobby at Raffles Hotel Singapore for an afternoon in America. The newly launched New York Afternoon Tea ($78) features a three-tiered curation of finger food inspired by the Big Apple.
Tuck into a Reuben sandwich, dainty lobster roll, and smoked salmon bagel, and enjoy a sweet selection of pastries – New York cheesecake, red velvet cupcake, carrot cake, and more. True to theme, a selection of three classic cocktails ($20) – the Manhattan, Cosmopolitan, and Bronx – are also available. And to top it all off, the afternoon tea is served at The Grand Lobby, a stunning space framed by ornate Victorian columns and mouldings. The New York Afternoon Tea is a limited period offering, and the hotel already has plans for an upcoming thematic menu to transport diners to another part of the world.
SAVE SPACE FOR Scones, baked lovingly in-house, and served plain and studded with raisins. These buttery treats are good as it is, but even better when slathered with the accompanying rose petal jam bursting with sweet, floral notes.
