The word ‘MENO’ comes from a book written by Plato. The philosophical meaning is to desire beautiful things and to have the power to acquire them. ‘Meno mosso’ also means slower tempo. We wish our dear customer can slow down their pace and enjoy the beauty and elegance of tea drinks at MENO. The logo was inspired by The Song of the Stormy Petrel written by Maksim Gorky. It indicates the striving attitudes of petrels, just like MENO.
MENO is the East meets West modern tea and coffee experience that will open its doors in the heart of the West Village near Washington Square Park this August. Conceptualized by new young rising star hospitality group OTTA Management Group in partnership with Urban Tea Inc, bringing patrons a variety of unique teas and coffees, specializing in coffee juices and dark tea, all set in a tranquil and serene space.
In the fast-paced world of New York City, MENO aims to provide a sanctuary for guests to take a beat and slow down, to truly appreciate the simple pleasures of a cup of tea or coffee.
