New York, USA
This small Jewish place, this tearoom – as we would call it – is the place that most of all reminds you of a familiar embrace, a sweet hold you know well and makes you feel contented even if it doesn’t last long. We spend time here as in a home parlour, ordering one of each type of biscuits, a round pastry with pomegranate jam, a meringue and coconut bar, and a spiced plait with dates. This is a quiet elegant place, that’s all. It is our hiding place in the East Village, or maybe in the whole Manhattan.
