It was highly anticipated since the moment Quentin Lechat arrived to the palace, and now, Quentin Lechat’s teatime at the Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris is coming. Before the Easter teatime – we already announced – even arrives, this “classic” teatime is one you want to enjoy.
Starting from this Friday April 1, 2022, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., enjoy the chef’s indulging creations. Head to the Bar Long and its cozy armchairs with perfect views on the inner garden to discover a scrumptious break in four courses instead of a tiered tray.
As a matter of fact, the chef has decided to reinvent the classic teatime to provide you with an indulging journey with different stops. Stops that will evolve over the course of seasons, of course. Let us start with a hot drink such as this exquisite and smooth hot cocoa you can thin down to taste.
This spring, let us start with a lovely selection of mini-pastries and the famous “Princes” served with new fruity creations.
Continue with a store cake (the Perle Vanille), as beautiful as divine, this pastry exploding vanilla beads in the mouth is just incredible.
One of the stops is performed live before you. So, for this start, let us begin with the “chaud/froid chocolat grand cru” plated live before it is served to your table.
Here, exchanging is at the very core of the experience, so pâtissiers are meeting you to share this indulging moment. The teatime beautifully finishes with the tasting of the famous travel cakes. Get the divine and smooth marble cake, the sour lemon core brioche, or Quentin Lechat’s unmissable flan we already love so much.
To perfect this fabulous break, a nice mixology pairing is needed. And this is when the bar staff steps in with a signature Mocktail (an alcohol-free cocktail). Of course, this afternoon tea is served with a hot drink and bubbles if you enjoy champagne.
Allow €65 per person for the teatime, and €85 for the Champagne version.
Great discoveries ahead!
