About Afternoon Tea at The Connaught
Afternoon tea – served in Jean-Georges at The Connaught – is an elegant celebration with a touch of theatre. After a day of shopping or sightseeing, relax in this light, atmospheric setting overlooking Mount Street and Carlos Place, and let the experience begin. A journey of taste and texture, afternoon tea at The Connaught starts with a surprise: a savoury amuse-bouche that simply melts in the mouth, accompanied by a glass of champagne if you choose. A collection of finger sandwiches, using a variety of breads, comes with classic fillings, some with a witty Jean-Georges twist. Freshly-baked scones arrive with clotted cream and home-made strawberry jam and lemon curd. The finale is a presentation of exquisitely-crafted cakes and fancies; the pièce de resistance is a miniature chocolate fondue with strawberries, shortbread or ginger cake for dipping, depending on the season. It’s pure, harmonious perfection: the best of the best.
