If you have plans to stop by in London between tomorrow and next Tuesday, which is March 31, consider having afternoon tea at Pont St at Belgrave Hotel. They have a March special dedicated to Austrian-born Parisian Marie Antoinette of “let them eat cake” infamy. Having luxurious Marie Antoinette afternoon tea in her honor is something one should do when in London – this way you can spin your own version of A Tale of Two Cities.
Cake is definitely on the menu, which by the way is named Chocolate Opera Cake. In addition to that there is the Marie Antoinette Playing Card Biscuit, Rose Macaron, Absinthe Choux, Champagne Lychee Jelly with Rosewater Cream and Fondant Fancies. The sumptuous savory menu include Foie Gras on Brioche Toast, Cheese Balls with Quince, Hollandaise Quail Egg Tartlets, Smoked Salmon on Pumpernickel and Finger Sandwiches. Even though it is named for a French queen, it is still English afternoon tea, so you get to enjoy classic scones with jam and clotted cream.
You can wash it all down with tea or coffee, on request they serve pearl flavored Ruinart Champagne. Talking about pearls, guests also receive a box of edible pearls in flavors rose or raspberry. For all of this Pont St. charge just £35 ($50 approx.) per person, if you want Champagne Marie Antoinette Afternoon Tea it will cost you £45 (about $65).
