Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon
56 Irving Place • New York, NY 10003
In 1834, three single-family brownstones sat at the corner of 17th Street and Irving Place, named for the author and diplomat, Washington Irving. After a three-year renovation, the meticulously restored brownstones were reborn as the Inn at Irving Place in December 1994. Look carefully for the discreet brass plaque, decorated with a teacup, to enter the establishment, which houses Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon. Victorian-style architecture, period antique furniture, and art create a charming setting while enjoying the salon’s sumptuous tea service, at $59 per person. Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon is open for tea from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Wednesday through Friday, and noon to 5:00 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. Reservations are required and can be made over the phone or through the website.
