I went to Takashimaya last Thursday.
Takashimaya is Japanese high-end department store located on 5th avenue/54th street.
I have not been there for 1 year, so I decided to check it out.
After cruising around inside, I went to downstairs to eat.
Yes, there is a restaurant offering great tea selection as well as some food.
I had this $18 afternoon tea set (I forgot what to call).
You can try several kinds of desserts, and there are also unique sandwich.
I have to say sandwich was not that good. rice was squished too tight. I needed some soy sauce.. but I didn't ask.
But all sweets are very good.
I also tried Japanese Sencha green tea.
This place is very quiet, and the great place to enjoy tea while you shop around this area.
