Exquisiteness and Opulence in New York A celebrated gem for more than 90 years, the Russian Tea Room is an over-the-top New York City experience that evokes glamour and sophistication. The iconic venue impresses with a 24-carat gold ceiling, stylish red leather booths and plush furnishings, and extensive artwork with gilded frames adorning the walls. Afternoon tea is served daily, with a variety of options including children’s, vegetarian and gluten-free. In addition to munching on delectable tea sandwiches (including turkey with truffle croque monsieur, smoked sturgeon with dill and shrimp salad with remoulade) and decadent desserts (assorted seasonal scones, petits fours and cupcakes), sample assorted caviars on blinis served by attentive servers donned in black tails. In addition to an incredible loose-leaf tea selection, guests can partake in a glass of bubbly or even one of 40+ varieties of vodka. Who knows? You might even spot a few celebrities while you’re socializing over Formosa oolong or rooibos chai. Actors, writers and politicians have been gathering here since 1927. And here’s a fun fact: Not only did Dustin Hoffman film a “Tootsie” scene here, Madonna once worked in the coat room before fame hit.
