An Expensive Cup of Tea

We don’t sell anything quite this expensive…

Diner's Journal is reporting that the Pink Tea Cup, an iconic New York City eatery that closed earlier this month, was recently purchased for $400,000. It will re-open next month around the corner from its original location on Grove Street. Lawrence Page, who bought the restaurant’s name, says he will employ the staff from the original Pink Tea Cup.

“I thought it was a good business to save,” said Page. “I just wrote the check. The name is worth that — 50 years of legacy.”

If you’re in NYC, be sure to stop by the Pink Tea Cup for some Southern comfort food and, of course, a cup of tea.
