Today I got to hang out with a friend I hadn’t seen in 10 years! We worked together in the city ages ago. As it turns out we both like very much to play dress up. She just received the most amazing blouse and skirt from London and was itching to take them for a spin. That sounded like a pretty darn good reason to pull out the frills and pop down to Manhattan and Alice’s Tea Cup Chapter II.
I reached out to the NY Lolita Community on Facebook and the lovely ladies’ votes came back for Chapter II as their fave location. I will admit the “mar-tea-nis” were also a deciding factor; Chapter II is the only location with a liquor license.
We order pumpkin pancakes and crepes with gruyere cheese and asparagus. Very yummy! I definitely want to visit again and try their tea selection and scones. One of the staff recommended we try Chapter III for our next visit (as one of their staff also likes to sport Victorian attire.)
We had such a great time. I can’t wait to see her again!! We are going to loop in some more of the old crowd and try to plan another “very important date” in the near future.
