Calling all foodies and sweet-toothed, it is time to go and discover the magnificent and delicious teatime at Lutetia. Let us head to the Parisian palace to have a seat under the superb and colorful glass roof of restaurant Le Saint Germain. Note that this teatime is served daily and we are delighted.
We remind you that a teatime, aka an afternoon tea, is based on sweet and savory creations, often served on a several-tier tray and to enjoy in the late afternoon. Let us be clear, you generally do not need dinner after that, or perhaps just a bowl of soup (if you want).
So, first things first, we choose a hot drink. White tea for me and Viennese chocolate for my partner. We then move on to two scones, each served with clotted cream and homemade jam. Scones are smooth as can be, it is delicious.
We continue with the savory creations, but you do it in whatever order you want. We had the crucnhy truffle and Beaufort cheese sandwich, the taramasalata-cucumber finger with yuzu, and the beetroot and smoked herring roe cannelloni.
We then move to the lovely pastries changing with the seaons: exotic pavlova, praline-Tonka bean choux bun, sesame, grapefruit and pineapple palmier with vanilla, hibiscus and raspberry almonds are the current specials.
In other words, a super setting, perfect service and sublime creations, what else could we ask for? Oh yes, perhaps Nicolas Guercio’s other tasty pastries on the menu…
Allow €58 per person and €75 for the champagne version including a glass of Veuve Cliquot.
