Afternoon tea near Times Square NYC

I am going to NYC late November and I was wondering if anyone knows of where to go for afternoon tea, I have looked at The Plaza, but it seems abit expensive for what you receive.

Any ideas ?

Many Thanks

Why/ does it have to be near Times Square? You'll likely get much better options if you move away from that area.

Look into the 7th floor restaurant of the department store Bergdorf Goodman as well as the Mandarin Oriental. Not too many places doe Afternoon Tea in NYC as that is not a New York "thing". If you are willing to go downtown to Gramercy Park, Lady Mendl's Tea Salon in Irving Place.http://www.ladymendlsteasalon.com/reservations/

If you just want tea and snacks, Alice's Teacup is low key and fun. The Plaza and Mandarin Oriental are haute tea, Alice's is good but down to earth. Three locations - Chapters I, II and III.

Any of the places mentioned will probably be expensive. Try Tea and Sympathy . Lady Mendls is a good choice. We don't do afternooon tea in the US so maybe just have a slice of pizza?Mandarin Oriental is more expensive than the Plaza

Instead of Afternoon Tea, do it the American way and enjoy Happy Hour with discounted drinks and appetizers

The concept of afternoon tea is too refined for the Times Square area. The hotels mentioned are probably the best known places, and there are likely other hotels offering tea as well.
