The Palm Court

  • The Palm Court: Dine at The Palm Court at The Plaza, New York



For over 100 years, The Palm Court at The Plaza has been New York City’s iconic destination for Afternoon Tea.  Today, under the culinary direction of Geoffrey Zakarian, The Palm Court showcases classic American menus from morning to evening.  Afternoon Tea truly shines, with a tea list of worldly depth, custom tableware and Bernadaud china made exclusively for The Plaza, and of course, a bit of Eloise too!   While staying true to its original design intent, master architect Thierry Despont brings the grand feeling of Central Park indoors, creating an ambiance that feels warm, private and glamorous.  Bespoke furnishings provide a relaxed, yet elegant setting well-suited for either a professional breakfast meeting or an evening of cocktails crafted by mixologist Brian Van Flandern.  This elegant room, marked with its historic stained glass lay light and impressive height, adds a touch of old world New York to a very polished and modern sense of hospitality.

The Palm Court is the perfect location for your next Special Event.  For groups of eight or more, please contact Ali Kayhan at (212) 546-5464 or
