Empress Lounge

$$$$ ($14 and under)

Editorial Review

The sunken lobby and panoramic window provide the perfect setting for a jewellike display of sandwiches and sweet confections, including Spanish vanilla cake and creme brulee. Expect impeccable service and thoughtful touches such as rock-candy stirrers. Wait, is that a chocolate fountain? Yes, it is. Thursday through Sunday, 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.; $32 per person.
