Strut into the stunningly beautiful Baccarat Hotel New York, conveniently located right off of Fifth Avenue, and head upstairs to their Grand Salon, where you can partake in their holiday afternoon tea service. Here, among the dazzling crystal chandeliers, velvet, silk and fur-clad seating, and festive red accents, their high tea service will transport you to the royal households and palaces around the world that inspired it. The Joyeaux Noël starts at $125 per person, and comes with a full tea tray of sandwiches and savory items, as well as sweets and freshly baked scones. You can indulge in the included lobster and cavia, balik salmon, foie gras torchon, and jamon de fromage on the savory side, along with the chocolate praline, petit gateau fromage blanc & raspberry, tarte au citron and choux diplomate on the sweet side. Additions like champagne, wine, cocktails and mocktails can be added to the experience for an additional charge. Six select tea blends are available to choose from, in partnership with premier tea masters, to enhance the experience.

If you want to share the experience with a younger soul, they also offer La Petit Prince, a children’s tea service. Inspired by the children’s novels, The Little Prince, the tea also includes select savories and sweets, geared more towards children, like mini donuts, pan de mie sandwiches, and petit linzer cookies, to name a few. The children’s service is available for $70 per person, or $90 a person if you opt to add in their hot chocolate.

Whatever you do, don’t forget to stop and smell the roses…aka take a look around at all the hotel has to offer. The interior itself is a masterpiece, and even if you’re coming for the tea, looking around at the design is as equally enchanting.
