Great Tea House in West Village - Podunk & Thanks

la2ny | Apr 1, 2004 11:47 AM

The other day I asked for a "choice" in the West Village, Meatpacking, Chelsea, for lunch/afternoon.

I just want to report:

We ended up going to Podunk on E. 5th St., 231, I believe it is...and had a marvelous time. The owner, a lovely woman, asked when the "rustic" tea plate arrived if it was what I was expecting. I said, I never expect, that way I can be surprised, or confused... But in this case, it was a perfect venue for what I wanted. Quiet ambience. Homey decor. Wonderful hostess, and the teas and "foods" were delightful. That's probaby the best word. It's delightful. Thank this list for coming up with the place for me. Group effort.
