The Casual Cup’s tiered tea service tantalizes sophisticated sippers with richly flavored libations and elegant eats. Diners commence their ambrosial afternoon with a steaming pot of tea of their choice. Scones slathered in house-made lemon curd and decadent clotted cream make diners feel as important as workers at a red-carpet manufacturing plant. A cup of belly-warming soup or a verdant helping of salad warms up taste buds for the main event, which consists of chef-picked tea sandwiches and assorted desserts elegantly displayed atop a tiered platter. The service requires 24 hours notice prior to guests’ arrival.
