Afternoon Tea at Le Salon | New Orleans

Sunday, December 13, 2009

What better way to kick off the holiday season than Afternoon Tea with the family or with a group of girlfriends! Le Salon at The Windsor Court here in New Orleans has the best afternoon tea in the City. The ambiance is elegant and festive- the magnificently decorated larger-than-life Christmas tree greets you as you enter the foyer and sounds of Christmas music play overhead. Along with an extensive selection of teas to choose from, the Afternoon Tea is accompanied by such tea sandwiches as caviar, smoked salmon, cucumber and chicken salad. And the desserts- oh, the desserts! Let me just tell you a thing or two about the plethora of sweet bits that arrive on beautiful tiered china stands. It seems like there were 20 different little desserts to taste, from white chocolate covered strawberries to bite-size tiramisu. I really couldn't find a thing that I didn't love. Though I must say that the warm gingerbread scones won my heart.

Le Salon also has a phenomenal 'Winter Champagne Cocktail' menu. Ask your waiter to bring you one of the Champagne cocktails before you begin your Afternoon Tea. A few that I recommend- the French 75, with lemon juice & gin, and the Champagne Julep, with mint & sugar.

There are three seatings, 7 days a week, during the holidays: 11am, 2pm & 4:30pm. Reservations are highly recommended- 504.596.4773. Windsor Court is located at 300 Gravier Street in downtown New Orleans.
