Join us for a Lovely Afternoon Tea on Sunday, 4/28 at 1:00pm

Come join us for a special "Afternoon Tea" experience at Janam Tea. This is an afternoon high tea that focuses on providing a very high quality tea from India, and an accompanying elegant and well-crafted selection of finger food. The teas are aromatic and flavorful, and exactly on point. The accompanying sandwiches, (cucumber and egg salad), and the salmon on crackers were exceptional along with the miniature curried chicken tarts. And then, wonderful scones, clotted cream, brown sugar cookies, miniature chocolate cupcakes and the pot au creme with a tiny peel of orange. There is true passion and artisanship in creating this special tea experience. Janam Tea www.janamtea.com/ These pure, unblended teas are cultivated on tea gardens throughout India. ______________________________________________________________________________ 5 stars ***** 12/30/2018 There is no way to adequately describe how fabulous this experience was for us. The service, the teas, the food is truly something that everyone should indulge in. Amy, the Indian tea expert and chef, served us and her knowledge of the teas and tapas leaves nothing to be desired. Although all the food was delectable, the cucumber sandwich with mushroom spread and the scones with cream and jam was our favorite! I cannot begin to describe to you the homemade jam and how perfect it tasted both on the scone and all by itself. Amy's mom used to prepare the mushroom spread when she was younger and she now serves it to all of us lucky enough to have afternoon tea with her. This is definitely a MUST DO, leaves you wanting to rebook experience!!! 5 stars ***** 11/14/2018 I had a lovely afternoon having afternoon tea here with a friend on a Saturday. I made reservations online which was an easy process. This place is a true gem! It might be a bit confusing to find when you first arrive because it's within a bar on the second floor but once you get there it's another atmosphere all together. It's a great place to just enjoy a lovely afternoon with a friend or group of friends with tea and lots of yummy assortments. The food was so scrumptious! I loved everything! I definitely want to come back. 5 stars ***** 10/10/2018 Going to Janam Tea was definitely an experience. We were warmly greeted by Amy and given a thorough intro on all the teas and how she came into the business. The tea and even down to the small bites, which she makes herself, were amazing! The atmosphere is very cozy, definitely perfect for a quiet and cozy date or just afternoon tea with good company. I definitely recommend this place to every and anyone. 5 stars ***** 12/10/2018 The service is very personable and informative. The host treated us at the door and gave us our choice of seating. Once we were settled in, she explained all the tea options. We each had our own pot. I picked the white tea and was happy with my choice. The food is a variety of options presented on a three tiered platter. We worked our way up the platter and everything was amazing. I enjoyed everything offered. The desserts were perfect but the egg salad was so delicious that I might have traded my cookie for more if it were possible. ______________________________________________________________________________ This is a pre-paid Event because the reservation must be secured with a credit card and we will be charged the full price for anyone not showing.

Bring your friends, it's fun. After you get on the boat there are a number of seating areas inside and outside. Sail time is about an hour and the views are nice, we took a lot of great pictures during the sail with the NYC skyline in the background. The lobster rolls are amazing. I only got to try the regular one and fries but it was among the best ones I've had. Would definitely go back to try their specialty ones. The drinks are cute and tasty. __________________________________________________________________________________ 5 stars ***** September 19, 2018 What a fun adventure! Something different for the city and doesn’t take up an entire day. Food was good, and a variety of seafood, my daughter is a vegetarian and had the Veggie Burger, so she was happy. Pricing was very reasonable, surprisingly so for the city. Our server did a great job. So very worthwhile! ______________________________________________________________________________________ 5 stars *****July 17, 2018 A great place for lunch and to enjoy a cold drink with a few friends on a hot summer day.

Reviewed November 24, 2018 Lynn D _______________________________________________________________________________________ 5 stars***** "Shade and solitude on a hot summer day" The Sunken Forest is a magical, mysterious hidden gem located in the middle of Fire Island. You can walk the meandering boardwalk through primeval trees and you are eventually deposited on a nearly empty beach (even in summer prime time). You can then walk back along the beach to a more crowded life guard protected area for a delightful swim in the ocean. The Parks Department provides clean restrooms, showers, and a snack bar/souvenir shop. There are also guided tours eco tours available. If you enjoy long beach walks, as I do, this is an excellent starting point. Reviewed August 17, 2018 antiques333 ____________________________________________________________________________________ 5 stars***** "Hidden Treasure" This is the best, most quite, sneaky beach spot you will find. Quick ferry ride to a small easy beautiful hike that leads to one of the most beautiful beaches with almost nobody around. Reviewed July 9, 2018 robert golf on sundays _______________________________________________________________________________________ 5 stars***** "An encapsulated hidden environmental wonder" Especially if you have a boat... go to sailors haven. Great new marina for you to dock your boat. There is a great little souvenir shop, eatery, with tables outside to grab a bite or coffee. And then take the hike to the sunken forest. Even on the hottest days the sunken forest is cool and comfortable. It is amazing that this forest has been preserved by nature itself. And then of course the spectacular beach. Due to location, never crowded.
