American Tea Room Newport Beach Fashion Island
“Tea Service” – a modern interpretation of high tea without stuffy doilies and fine china. Launching Saturday, May 28, CEO David Barenholtz collaborated with Culinary Director Valerie Gordon of Valerie Confections to design a program with influences from traditional global tea ceremonies, but with a contemporary twist.
Available in three sizes and served on custom wooden boards from The Wooden Palate, the teas and food pairings are perfect for enjoying on your own, gathering with a friend or two in the oasis tea garden, or celebrating a fun group event, such as a baby or bridal shower.
