15. Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon
Located at 56 Irving Place, you will find two townhouses without the hint of either rooms to rent or a tea salon behind their doors. But when you open the door and enter the parlor, you will find The Inn at Irving Place and Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon. Afternoon Tea from Wednesday through Friday from 1 pm to 4 pm, and on the weekends from Noon to 5 pm is held in this Victorian setting and served on Wedgwood china. Reservations are preferred, and no children under the age of 12 admitted.
