Bistro The Tea Set
Situated in the heart of the West Village, Bistro The Tea Set serves classic French fare with a fresh New York twist. Relax your body on their comfortable seats with pillows and wait for The Tea Set to present you the essence of the Parisian bistro with its simple yet elegant cuisine.
If you are a veggie lover, don’t miss out their Executive Chef Miguel Flores’ delectable Notting Hill Salad. Served with fresh orange dressing, this delicate combination of organic quinoa, cranberries, orange, scallions, peanuts, romaine lettuce will cheer up your day like a fresh breeze.
Or if you are hungry for more, call up a good friend and try out the Mediterranean Platter for Two. A true delight of organic hummus, tabouli, wine leaves stuffed with rice, tapenade and pita bread, this exquisite dish is followed by a sumptuous Seafood Bouillabaise overflowing with scallops, clams and shrimp.
At nighttime, Bistro The Tea Set takes on a more urban look – be expecting some disco music in a festive candle-lit dining room! Want more privacy? Reserve a room in the back and enjoy a plate of cheese and charcuterie while savor a glass of special Lavender Vodka cocktail with your cherished ones!
Home Restaurant is one of those few restaurants that hold a mission of local consciousness. Dedicated to showcasing the abundance of sustainably and responsibly raised products from local regions; Home only uses fresh in-season ingredients from farms in New York State.
