Whether you’re looking for a cozy intimate dinner on a Friday night or a family brunch on a early Sunday afternoon, think Pink Tea Cup. It is your perfect dining destination. They provide a warm intimate setting and a delicious southern style dining experience. Lawrence Page is the proud owner of this restaurant and also adds to the welcoming feel of the Pink Tea Cup .
More so, food at the Pink Tea Cup is amazing. I visited Lafayette, Brooklyn on a Friday looking for somewhere to eat that was both tasty and comfortable. It was freezing outside and upon entering the restaurant I immediately felt I was in the perfect spot. I ordered the Big Country Catfish, Sauteed Rice and Collard Greens and I also tried their infamous Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffles. (They also have a variety of waffle flavors including pecan waffles, sweet potato and chocolate chip.) Let’s just say that I was so happy with my meal that I returned two days later on Sunday and brought my mother and sister.
On Sunday we had two rounds of their strawberry mimosas. I highly recommend the mimosas, they are amazing. This time I had their Holy Trinity Shrimp and Grits. I honestly haven’t had better shrimp and grits anywhere else. Let me please remind you that I did attend school in North Carolina for four years and I have been to many restaurants in the south and in New York but I haven’t experienced better shrimp and grits. For that reason, I will be returning to try more of their dishes.
