I headed to New York City yesterday, or as it’s known to us East Coasters, “The City.” I spent the day with my fabulous California girl Sunny! We walked from her Tudor City hideaway to the very chic “Sanctuary T Restaurant” located in Soho. It was quite a brisk day in the city with temps hovering around 30 degrees, warming ourselves in a cozy tea lounge was exactly what the day called for!
Sanctuary T is really lovely, cozy and not a doily in sight! They offer a full menu for breakfast, lunch, dinner as well as wine and tea infused cocktails. The menu is also themed with “tea” infused, health conscious choices. After much internal debate, I settled on the smokey steak salad with the lapsang vinaigrette – DELISH! I finished my brunch with a cup of Toasted Almond tea and the uber yummy house made peanut butter ice cream sandwich. Their tea menu is extensive and it was such a tough decision. However, the toasted almond came highly recommended. The smell was so fragrant and the infused leaves beautiful, it really worked well as a dessert tea. I regretfully left the restaurant empty handed of a tea purchase.
If ever in Soho and need a respite from the busy streets of NYC, grab a bite and a cup of tea at Sanctuary T!
