The Savoy in SoHo

I have read wonderful things about The Savoy in London and dreamed of enjoying high tea there one day. In the meantime, I will have to content myself with drinking tea at The Savoy in SoHo.

So do you have a place you want to go for lunch that isn't necessarily convenient right now?

Speaking of high tea, have you been to the High Chai Tearoom?

Peter said...

Yes, not quite like the London version! Anyhow, this one is open, whereas the one in London is closed for a while, being refreshened (see gmg's blog)!

Interesting place no doubt.

Tea in London? Don't go to the Savoy, Ming. Go to Brown's Hotel - it's the best. Or failing that, the Ritz. I prefer Brown's. the whole ritual of it is fabulous and so decadent. Don't you love decadence?

Don't get me started on places I like to eat. I LOVE eating out - the whole theatre of it all. How long is a piece of string for my list?

Hey Ming!
The upper floor of that restaurant is SO romantic. In the winters, the fireplace is lit. A friend witnessed an impromptu proposal.

Great food, too!

Oh absolutely. So inconvenient - I need to fly 10+hrs back to California to have my In-and-Out burgers!
It's convenient and yummy fast food then!

Indeed, I do! I'd love to have Mexican food in the Southwest at least three times a week. Alas, D.C. is a long ways away from the Mountains of the West.

We have a hotel and restaurant in Malmoe, Sweden with the same name. They've had some quite interesting guests through the years. Josef Stalin for example. Just wanna let you know ;)

There is this little cafe in the Barri Gotic area of Barcelona that I loved. . . .Unfortunately, I can't travel 10 hours (one way) just for lunch! ;-)
