Inspired by the Vanderbilt tradition of sharing afternoon tea with guests, The Dining Room’s unique take on this elegant experience features Newby Teas, renowned as one of the world’s finest tea purveyors. Tea is served with such delights as fresh-baked scones with clotted cream, honey, and preserves, artfully prepared sweet and savory canapés, and finely cut tea sandwiches. To further enhance this welcome moment of leisure, indulge in a carefully crafted tea-infused cocktail, Mimosa, or Kir Royale.
