Calling all foodies and sweet-toothed, it’s time to go and discover the magnificent and delicious teatime at Lutetia. Let’s 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’re very happy.
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’s be clear, you general don’t have 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’s delicious.
We continue with the savory creations, but you do it in whatever order you want. We enjoyed mini sandwiches (candied vegetables, green pesto and sundried tomatoes with white bread; poultry, deviled egg and truffled mayonnaise; or even smoked salmon, cream with herbs and lemon zests with black bread).
We fell in love with the crispy and hot churros and their homemade chocolate-hazelnut spread. We’re delighted.
We then move to the lovely pastries: chocolate tart, coconut entremets, kumquat puff pastry and pistachio dessert were available the day we came. Beautiful pastries, well-balanced and mastered, all you need to have a great time.
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… Arrive at Lutetia hotel in June, he keeps on delighting our taste buds. After a delicate and sophisticated yule log, a wonderful Epiphany cake we’re still talking about, he’ll be talked about for a long time.
