The second New York hotel from Tim & Kit Kemp, The Whitby is a fun and central spot to have Afternoon Tea...

The Whitby, New York

Husband and wife founders of Firmdale Hotels, Tim & Kit Kemp, opened their second NYC address in 2017: The Whitby. True to the brand, who’s other locations include The Crosby Hotel in Soho and London’s Covent Garden Hotel, it feels like a home-away-from-home (even in the centre of NYC’s busiest tourist trail). A mere handbag swing away from the iconic shops of Fifth Avenue, The Whitby is within walking distance to the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and Central Park and afternoon tea in The Orangery is simply divine.

DON’T MISS: The beautiful bespoke collection of plates, tea pots and tea cups that were designed especially by Kit Kemp in collaboration with Wedgwood for The Whitby, it’s called Mythical Creatures.
AFTERNOON TEA MENU: $45 per person.
INSIDER’S TIP: They also offer healthy options, free from gluten, dairy, eggs and refined sugar. You can request the cashew cream instead of the clotted.
