I’ve been to NYL a couple of times now and whether it’s just a few cocktails or brunch, it always seems to be a little bit special. The venue is the epitome of New York glamour and as someone that’s obsessed with all things big apple it’s just the perfect place to while away a few hours. So, when i was invited to try out the new New York style afternoon tea the venue are now offering – it was a big fat yes.
We chose to visit the venue on a Sunday afternoon – cos who doesn’t love a Sunday funday. To make our experience extra special, we were given goodie bags on arrival containing NYL branded mugs and, much to my delight, Liverpool Gin miniatures. The New York afternoon tea comes with Crosby coffee or a pot of tea or you can upgrade to cocktails or prosecco.
Food wise, the afternoon tea features an American take on the traditional sandwiches featuring pastrami and mustard, mini smoked salmon bagels and open mozzarella and sundried tomato – a nice little selection. You could find traditional scones, jam and cream on the top tier, but the middle section was a colourful display of rainbow donuts, Liverpool gin jelly, salted caramel popcorn brownies and a super creamy cookies and cream cheesecake slice. Errr yes please.
To wash it all down, i went with the ‘berry bevvy’ cocktail -a fruity pink concoction made with gin which was right up my street and went down far too quickly. For anyone after a The perfect venue for an afternoon treat, the shining lights NYL is your answer and afternoon tea is a great addition to their offerings.
