2024 Best Afternoon Tea

Silver Dove Afternoon Tea

Is afternoon tea the new three-martini lunch? Thanks to Silver Dove, which opened last year downtown, it just might be. Everything about this impeccable British-style tea service is at once cozy and oh-so-civilized, from the savory and sweet finger foods to the rose-studded entryway wall and green velvet banquettes.
