Afternoon Tea at the Ritz Carlton in NYC

Our family enjoyed Afternoon Tea in the Star Lounge
 of the Ritz Carlton in New York City July 2007.
We were seated on a love seat and side chair
in the Lobby Lounge
and tea was served at a low table set with beautiful
Wedgwood china.  
The first course was served on a small silver 3 tier server.
This was a selection of delicious sandwiches and savories.
  After we ate those, the tea specialist (server) asked if we wanted more.
8 year old AJ requested more of 2 different sandwiches. 
Note: Several, but not all, Grand Hotels offer to replenish.
The second course was warm scones served with
Devonshire cream and Orange Preserves from nearby Sarabeth's.
The abundant third course of beautiful and delicious sweets and pastries,
 was served on the mini silver 3 tiered server.  
This was a delightful afternoon with unlimited pots of tea!
