Day 7 - Afternoon Tea at The Plaza

 Visiting The Plaza Hotel was high on Peyton's NYC list because
of the movie Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
The hotel lobby has totally changed since the movie, but we enjoyed an interesting  
discussion with an employee who was there during the filming.
He pointed out a locations of a few of the scenes. 
Since our last visit, Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian was named the Culinary Director at The Plaza,
and The Palm Court has undergone a complete renovation. 
Afternoon tea prices have increased and, if you wish, cocktails are served with tea. 
Peyton ordered the traditional Eloise Tea with  "Cold Cold" Pink Lemonade to drink. 
The Eloise Menu
There are no more white table cloths in The Palm Court.
Notice the "modern" look of the wood and mirrored table.

 The top tier of sweets was Peyton's favorite course of the Eloise tea.

The boys were not familiar with the Eloise story,  I told them about the
adventurous 6-year-old little girl who lived at The Plaza, became famous
in the 1955 book Eloise.
After tea we visited the Eloise shop for a little shopping.
I just love, love, love Eloise.
My fun book purchase:
