My friend has been following a lot of new restaurant openings in the New York area, and she excitedly texted me to let me know that Prince Tea House would be opening a location in Forest Hills, and she wanted us to go. They have this tea-flavored mille crepe cake that looked amazing online, and she needed us to have it.
Unfortunately, restaurant openings during the pandemic, especially ones that have trendy dishes, have been a bit crazy. Even with the smaller crowds, there still ARE crowds; this restaurant, on average, reported a wait time of just over 2 hours for each party! And I reviewed the menu; other than the desserts, there really wasn’t anything else there that I really wanted to try. There was no way any of us were going to tolerate this. So we decided to pick another place in another neighborhood because none of us wants to wait in this city for good food, pandemic or not.
