Imagine chatting with friends in a sundrenched atrium while nibbling on tea sandwiches and scones. To whet your palette you’ll sip tea or possibly champagne. Then as the afternoon winds down, choose from assorted petite fours and tasty macaroons. All while a live harpist plays softly in the background. Afternoon Tea includes standard tea service and a performance by harpist Jill Bosworth. It is available by advanced reservation for $40 per person for standard tea service and $50 per person for the option of champagne, mimosas or wine.
The menu features two salads including chicken, apples and raisins in endive and feta, Kalamata olives, and grape tomato served in a cucumber cup. Guests can also enjoy tea sandwiches comprised of cucumber mint on rye bread; tomato, basil and mozzarella on sourdough bread; prosciutto and asparagus on white bread; and roasted beef, horseradish cream and arugula on mini brioche. Baked goods including banana nut bread and assorted scones and pastries, served with flavored sweet butter cream, Devonshire cream and assorted preserves are also on the menu. Tea concludes with assorted sweets served in a beautiful display of petite fours, mini assorted cheese cakes, macaroons and tarts.
