Brown Thomas unveils the most enchanting afternoon tea experience with guests invited to come all aboard its magical train carriage in The Restaurant by Johnnie Cooke this festive season. Priced from €45, the afternoon tea experience offers the most delectable combination of sweet and savoury delights by renowned Chef Johnnie Cooke and includes a glass of prosecco also.
Beautifully presented on a tea stand replicating the façade of the iconic Grafton Street department store, the delicious savoury menu includes an 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.
Guests can indulge sweet treats such as 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. Guests can treat themselves to bubbles from Veuve Clicquot or a cocktail from a specially curated menu.
Little shoppers will adore a delightful selection of savoury and sweet options (priced at €17.50) from mini ham and cheddar quiches and mini brioche sliders to Nutella and banana sandwiches and much more.
The new Brown Thomas Afternoon Tea experience is served daily with sittings at 3pm, 4pm and 5:15pm from now until Thursday 19th December at The Restaurant by Johnnie Cooke on Level 3 at Brown Thomas Dublin. All bookings can be made by telephoning The Restaurant at 01-6171163.
