Foodies have flocked to Chelsea since the city set aside two acres in 1884 to establish a food market called the Gansevoort Market named for a Revolutionary War hero. This tour begins in the Chelsea Market building, a former Nabisco cookie factory, located in the trendy Meat Packing District, now home to the Food Network. We’ll sample a sweet or savory scone while we visit dozens of gourmet grocers, bakeries, and a gift basket shop stocked with loose tea, tea pots, epicurean honey, artisanal cheeses, shortbread, jams and the best NYC-themed souvenirs.

Then it’s on to a sky-high café with stunning Hudson River views where you may shop for Mariage Frères teas and books. Our afternoon ends with a three-course, full afternoon tea at a serene, sunlit space graced with original paintings and a baby grand piano. The menu, which changes weekly, offers over 100 types of loose tea and mostly organic food, served in dainty mis-matched china on a table draped with a floor-length damask cloth.

MEET:
Locations will vary depending upon the size of your group and day of the week. You will be given the destination when you book your group's reservation.

The cost per person, minimum 6 people, maximum 12 people, is $110. The fee includes a full afternoon tea, tastings which will include a scone, tea and/or chocolate, cookie or other sweet or savory.

What if I don’t have a group of 6?
