NYC Holidays II: Shelter from the Snow

December 28, 2010

Here are some recommendations for pretty & romantic places to have tea or coffee to warm up in the snowy city.  Take your mom or girlfriend, and bask in New York’s beautiful design here:

1. Saks Fifth Avenue: You can enjoy their post-holiday sale and take a lunch break for a soup, and then a sweet break for hot chocolate on the 6th floor.

2. MOMA: Enjoy Drawing and Abstract Expressionism, and take a break for tea or hot chocolate at their modern comfort cafeteria.

3. The Pierre: My grandma loved having tea at The Plaza Hotel, and now I’ve continued the tradition but at a different iconic New York hotel:  The Pierre.  Afterwards, walk to The Frick to see the European Masters.

3. The Met Balcony: Sip tea at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s indoor balcony, where you can feel transported to another period, and climate, as classical music serenades you amidst dramatic columns.  Current exhibits include Khubilai Khan (thru Jan 2nd),  John Gossart’s Renaissance, and The Roman Mosaic.
