The Palm Court

At last I have gone to The Palm Court that is situated at the lobby of The Plaza Hotel to have afternoon tea ( or should I say high tea!) As many of you may have already known, it is famous for its part  in the final scene of The Great Gatsby (1974) when the awkward encounterance between Nick, Jordan, Daisy, and Tom takes place.

Fast forward to 2013, here I am sitting next to a palm tree having tea. The decor is the same as I remember from the film. Rich and classy. Although it has become a more touristic spot, it has not lost its true New Yorker glam from the earlier eras.

Make sure you book a table early if you want to have afternoon tea here during your visit.
