King's Carriage House is an New American cuisine restaurant, tea room, and wine bar located at 251 East 82nd Street (between Second Avenue and Third Avenue), on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, in New York City.[3][4]

It opened in 1995.[5] It is owned by Elizabeth King (a chef) and Paul Farrell (who runs the dining room).[1][6]


The restaurant serves afternoon tea from 3 to 4 PM, for which reservations are required.[3][7][8][9] The New American cuisine menu includes items such as grilled filet mignon, roasted breast of duck, roast goose, and pheasant potpie.[1] [6]


The small, cozy four-room restaurant is an 1870s former carriage house in a romantic duplex, modeled after an Irish manor house and suggesting an English country house.[2][3][5][6][7][10] The restaurant has antique wood furniture, tartan curtains, and antique silver teapots.[5] It has three dining rooms: the Hunt Room, with a mural painted by a nearby parish's priest; the Red Room, with old paintings; and the Willow Room, with antiques.[6]

The attire is "jackets optional".[1]


In 2013, Zagats gave the restaurant a food rating of 22, and a decor rating of 25.[3]
