Tea Time in New York: Two E Bar and Lounge at The Pierre, New York

The Pierre, New YorkWe’re a little giddy over the $100 million renovation of The Pierre, the Fifth Avenue flagship of Taj Hotels, which we reported in June. The guestrooms have gotten a marvelous makeover. What’s more– the Central Park luxury hotel has opened Two E, a bar and lounge designed by Alexandra Champalimaud with custom furniture and a central bronze bar. Curious about the name? It’s derived from the hotel’s address at 2 East 61st Street. In addition to light fare and classic cocktails, guests can partake in either “traditional” ($55) or “sweet” ($45) afternoon tea service every day from 3-5 p.m. Dive into a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked ginger scones with Devonshire cream and Meyer lemon curd, and pastries like the Banana Rum Opera Cake. Sweet Tea Service ($45) skips the savory snacks. Coffee addicts will be pleased to learn that there’s also a Coffee Bar serving French press coffees, espresso and cappuccino.
