Between the luxury boutiques on every block and the boatloads of tourists squeezing in and out of them, it’s almost impossible today to find some peace and quiet in SoHo.

That is unless you know the right spots to go to.

Whenever I’m downtown and in the mood for a light, healthy snack (or a quick cup of tea), I make it a point to stop by Sanctuary T, located on Grand and West Broadway.

Conveniently below my former office, and close to Alexander Wang, the teahouse/dining space serves a contemporary assortment of fresh new American cuisine with the best cocktails and loose leaf teas one could ask for.

Be sure to say hi to owner Dawn Cameron, she’s a doll!
