$25 for Speakeasy-Themed Dinner for Two ($50 Value)

Starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday nights, the dining room of First Ladies Tea Parlor is transformed into a speakeasy replete with live jazz music. The menu stars fruit and cheese along with entrees such as beef tenderloin and stuffed salmon filet with crabmeat. Guests are also welcome to attend the dinner dressed in their finest 1920s togs, from fringe-laden flapper dresses to antique socks from that era.

First Ladies Tea Parlor

Perhaps it’s the dining room’s glittering chandeliers that make diners feel as though they’ve stepped back in time, or maybe it’s the silver tea sets displayed atop baroque-style tables that bring to mind a bygone era. Though it’s difficult to single out the one element of First Ladies Tea Parlor that transports diners to the past, it’s evident that owner KJ Jordan has realized her vision. KJ’s passion for all things old-timey manifests itself in the parlor’s varied schedule of events, from historic fashion shows and presentations by authors and historical interpreters to speakeasy dinners that keep the spirit of the 1920s alive via live jazz and free admission for ghosts. Away from the sun-dappled dining room, chef Gabby Bauman and her culinary crew bustle about the kitchen whipping up light lunches featuring entrees named after first ladies, including the Lady Dolley sandwich filled with roasted turkey and avocado and the Lady Betty salad dappled with salmon fillet and apricot-ginger dressing.

DJ was so attentive and did a wonderful job serving. The food was good, the tea choices were plentiful, preparation was flawless and service superb. We will definitely be back. Our multi-generational tea experience was exactly what we had hoped and more.
