While Bosh and Shlomit have posted their photos and thoughts of the food, let me give you my little shpiel and background of the restaurant.
Let me take you back to the Year 2003, I was just starting out in the industry and I remember one of the first places I visited was this stylish and inviting restaurant called "Tea for Two" on Kings Highway in Brooklyn. It had Italian and Sushi dishes, and it may have been one of the first times I ever had sushi in my life. I'm sure many of you have similar memories as well from this restaurant. Now, much has come and gone in the past 18 years but yesterday came full circle in Marine Park.
The restaurant is in the space once called Isabella Kitchen. It is now run by Moshe Kahn, Allison's son, and he is taking over where his Mom left off and so is the restaurant.
[continued above, right]
The restaurant is more modern looking then its namesake from yesteryear but the dishes are just as comforting as we remember. The menu won't be pretentious but familiar to their long time customers. It will have the classic items as well as some new dishes that are classy.
For us in Marine Park and surrounding areas, this is a welcome addition to the neighborhood that couples, friends and families can go to for a nice, relaxing dairy dinner. Unfortunately, with Savor Cafe, Cafe Hadar and Al Dente closed, this is the closest nice dairy restaurant to us east of Ocean Avenue all the way to Mill Basin. I do believe many of the former Tea for Two customers near Ocean Parkway will come as they do for T Steakhouse so trust me when I say all of us, including the owners, need this to work as third time has to be the charm here at this location.
I'm happy to say you're going to get your first taste of this new "Tea for Two" this Saturday night as they will be doing a soft opening.
You can make reservations on our website, but please keep in mind they have a 35% capacity.

Liat- 03/15/10 i happened to be there last night and observed a sheva brachat in the party room.well.. I clearly must state that I have never seen such great service and never tasted such dairy delish food. I must say that I will be booking my affair there pretty soon. It impressed me to see the way the hostess handles everything with a smile.Amazing how everyone is greeted like family by her. Throughout dinner I observed the party how fluid and calm it was.(liked the guitarist touch)Highly recommended. The place Wowed me!

Tea for two closed on kings highway
Raymond- 05/13/09 what a loss for all of us. i hope they succeed re-opening anywhere. ill follw wherever they go. we all know that the greed in this community is what put tea for two out of this place. i know for sure what transpired at that location and i feel bad that a flagship place was forced to close for intervention by others in the community. may hashem give them hatzlacha wherever they will be. a very sad customer
