Interesting little shop sandwiched between the restaurant Tea & Sympathy and the Fish and Chip shop this is the heart of the Tea & Sympathy brand. All good fun and lively it is stacked with presents for all those anglophiles or homesick brits in NYC.

If you're from across the pond eventually you'll need some real chocolate. Once you have English chocolate you'll probably not enjoy the waxy Mexican made American version. I've never met a UK person who said otherwise. How about some HP Sauce? Check! Pudding? Check! This...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

Description
British comfort food in a cozy Greenwich Village location.




The Scene
Decked out like an exaggerated version of a suburban British living room--tacky wallpaper, an extensive teapot collection, lots of ceramic figures, Vera Lynne on the stereo--Tea & Sympathy serves as a cozy home away from home for expats. Sometimes it's a little too cozy, in fact; space is limited, and you can expect to be moved around during your meal to make room for other diners. The friendly but no-nonsense waitstaff is always ready with a smile and a comeback line.

The Food
The menu offers perfect renditions of such Brit classics as Welsh rarebit (thick bread with melted cheese, tomato and mustard), steak and kidney pie, Scotch egg (hard-boiled egg, deep-fried in pastry), tweed kettle pie (trout and cod wrapped in bacon and served in a pie) and bangers and mash (sausages and mashed potato). Any one of these will fill you up for the day; for those on a diet or just faint-hearted, there are lighter sandwiches and salads, too.
