Book us in – Brown Thomas has launched a new afternoon tea menu for the festive season


Splendid, darling.

As winter is the season of indulgence, we’re planning to spend Christmas 2019 treating ourselves to the finer things in life. And an evening spent eating delectable tarts and drinking champagne with our girlfriends is right up there.

Cue Brown Thomas’ new afternoon tea package.

This week, the retailer located on Grafton Street unveiled the most enchanting afternoon tea experience in The Restaurant by Johnnie Cooke.

Creating a replica of the iconic department store for your array of mini dishes to be displayed in, renowned chef Johnnie Cooke has created an afternoon tea to trump all others.

Savory bites include…

Irish St Tola goat’s cheese tartlet, truffle chicken gougeres with morel mushrooms, black truffle and parmesan cheese, coronation chicken served with red endive, sultanas, almonds and mango and a ‘Brown Thomas Charmeuse’ – a buckwheat crêpe served with organic Irish smoked salmon, chives, caviar, and crème fraîche.

Sweet treats include…

A champagne raspberry macaron, a Sicilian lemon tart, a Catalan crème brûlée made with Seville orange, cinnamon and bourbon vanilla and a ‘Brown Thomas Verrine’ – a creamy coconut, liquid raspberry, passion fruit mousse.

And let’s not forget the most important part, besides the tea and coffee, you can treat themselves yourself to bubbles from Veuve Clicquot or even, a cocktail.

Gals - use this trick to make even the cheapest prosecco taste absolutely gorge

Now, that’s what we like to hear.

The Brown Thomas afternoon tea experience is now being served daily with sittings at 3pm, 4pm and 5:15pm. Priced at €45pp, book now until Thursday, December 19 to avail of this wonderful festive package.
