Afternoon Tea
Our $89 prix fixe tea service offered Wednesday through Sunday.

Lady Mendl's is an unconventionally chic tea salon housed within a Georgian brownstone in the Gramercy Park neighborhood of Manhattan. An opulent five-course tea is served in an eclectic and whimsical parlor by a doting staff. Patrons sip tea from hand culled vintage Wedgwood teacups as they nibble dainty finger sandwiches and house baked scones.

***WE DO NOT OFFER VEGAN OR GLUTEN FREE OPTIONS.
CHILDREN UNDER 12 ARE NOT PERMITTED.***

Please note that our entrance is only accessible via a staircase of 10 steps. We do not have an elevator.

    Lady Mendl’s afternoon tea was an exquisite experience. From the beautiful setting to the lovely hostess, our attentive and delightful waiters and the delicious food, we can’t say enough. It is not going to be an inexpensive outing but my sister and I look at an experience like this as a reasonably priced New York City experience- like a show or an event. It’s 5 courses with a tea pairing with each. An absolutely delightful afternoon.

    Lovely tea experience, attentive staff, delicious food and teas. When busy, the place is a little loud but can still converse. The scones are really good. Next time, will try tea pairing. Go treat yourselves.

    Lovely ambiance and great service. I just wish the menu had more variety since there were mostly vegan and vegetarian options.

    I brought my mum and sister in from out of town and it was their favourite part of the visit! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience, the team is lovely.
