Nothing like a maiden voyage to a baptistery to kick off the start of my spring break. This christening set the bar very high for any religion-oriented baby event. Following the ceremony, a wickedly witty candle occurrence with my tall HeView, one four-foot candle and an endearing holy man, our intimate party headed over to Park Avenue Townhouse, which holds private events and is currently celebrating Spring (is it really 39 degrees today?). This venue is adjacent to its counterpart, the lovely restaurant that faces Park Avenue. Again, no baby ritual can top the elegance, the sweet touches and the grace of this one.
Park Avenue Townhouse
Paint color truly can make or break a room. This tranquil blue with tints of green had an overall calming yet cheerful feeling, complementing the four round wood tables in the modest yet luxurious main room of Park Ave Townhouse. Glass rectangular vases housed pink hues of Spring’s blooms. The additional goodies (provided by our hostess with the mostess), which were gingerly placed at our table spots, elevated the already lovely private room to the utmost prominence.
All of the appetizers, entrees and desserts selected for our brunch can be ordered at Park Avenue Spring. I like the idea of salmon and its beneficial nature but typically feel it falls short in flavor – not this Scottish delight, which was salty with the perfect proportions of herb (dill) served beautifully over veggies. If a sweet tooth is lurking, try the chocolate box – a pure cocoa lover’s dream. It’s truly a true gem when you find a beautiful establishment with food and service to match its décor and stand out quality. Townhouse again, takes the cake! 100 East 63rd Street | Between Park and Lexington Avenues (212) 644-1900
