I treated myself to a lovely dinner here tonight. I love that all of the food is vegetarian, so I don’t have to worry about figuring out which dishes are ok. I had avocado bibimbap with ginger soy sauce, soy cheesecake, and dandelion tea. The bibimbap was quite good and the cheesecake was fantastically sweet and creamy with a lovely caramel/fruit drizzle. Everything was beautifully presented. The tea complemented the meal nicely. It had a roasty, savory flavor and soothed my stomach after too much matcha. The restaurant itself is beautiful and serene. The prices are in special-treat range for me but not completely outrageous. I’m not in this neighborhood often, but I would eat at Franchia again next time I am.

Bonus – it’s not far from the Morgan Library, which is an absolutely wonderful place to visit, happens to have free admission on Fridays from 7pm-9pm, and currently has a great exhibit on Alice in Wonderland (plus a gorgeous collection of illuminated texts and oh yeah, a Gutenberg Bible).

The food is tasty and the tea selection is wonderful. I had a iced ginger tea. It was refreshing and full of zing. I also had the green oolong. It was delicious. It comes with the leaves and a thermos of hot water. I only wish I had brought some tupperware with me since the leaves were good for a few more steeps.

The service was wonderfully discreet. I prefer to be left alone while I dine.

Franchia (Park Ave. NYC) is the best tea shop in the U.S. for premium green tea from Korea. They also own Hangawi, an upscale vegetarian place nearby with absolutely beautiful interior and wonderful Korean cuisine. Very relaxing, peaceful escape from the busy streets of NYC.
