Georgina Jones, renowned for her lavish parties and literary soirees, would have loved to host Afternoon Tea in The Miramar Fountain Room, where the sun streams through the glass, framing amaryllis and palm fronds, and guests are treated to three generous courses. Indulge in elegant finger sandwiches, warm Gougeres, goat cheese & caramelized fig sandwiches, lobster rolls, warm scones with clotted cream and house-made preserves. Also, a scrumptious array of miniature cakes, pastries and classic madeleines from Executive Chef, Damon Gordon’s playful and inventive menu.
Served on our divine Bernardaud porcelain, inspired by images of the beloved garden that Georgina tended so well, our guests balance a delicate tea cup, lean into a plush loveseat or velvet banquette and slowly savor a selection from our freshly brewed Lot 35 loose leaf teas, Fairmont’s exclusive luxury tea collection.
Afternoon tea can be a highbrow family affair but it is also especially attractive to casual gatherings of adults who share in the languorous ritual of swirling, sipping tea. Most delicious, perhaps, is the opportunity to linger for a while, and catch up on news & conversation. Imagine this as your own private tea salon, and anticipate an afternoon filled with little gifts and surprises!
