There’s a new afternoon tea at The Pierre…
…it’s called the Frida Kahlo afternoon tea (in tribute to the New York Botanical Gardens’ new Frida Kahlo exhibit), and runs from May 14 – June 12. It’s presented in the same style as their traditional afternoon tea…only with some menu twists.
Let’s start with the savories:
Smoked salmon, annatto, and cream cheese mini burritos
Mini shrimp tacos with fruit salad
Saffron chicken tartlet
Deveiled egg brioche buns with red sorrel
Angus beef empanadas
Manchego cheese churros with spice dust
Ahh and don’t forget about the tea!
Sharing oolongs and chai.
On the middle tier: spiced pineapple and lime scones. Whipped devonshire, raspberry preserves, and lemon curd.
Cashew cream cheese squares
Lemon apricot sandwiches
Chocolate sand cookies
Top tier: Fruit tartlets in blueberry…
Macadamia nut and lilikoi financiers
Ancho chili milk chocolate cake
Lavender crème brûlée tart
Coffee and strawberry macarons
