High Tea in Paris
Where would be the best place for high tea in Paris?
We are thinking Le Galarie at the 4 Seasons.
Depends on your definition of "high tea". For a local equivalent of a chic afternoon tea served at say the Berkeley in London, the 5* palace hotels, like the Galerie at the 4 Seasons Galerie would be what your after.
There are though more typical Parisian salons de thé outside the hotels. Try searching this board. It's very old hat, but I like Angelina on the rue de Rivoli.
I've also heard that the Ritz and the George V do impressive teas
(Paris really has no tradition of high tea...you can find it, but it isn't really French)
I assume you mean afternoon tea. It's fine and proper at the Four Seasons Galerie. However there are the usual sandwiches and pastries. Low tables! The Plaza-Athenee had a marvellous pastry chef a couple of years ago who might still be there. So if pastry is primary and the prize winning pastry chef is there, consider checking out the Plaza-Athenee's narrow gallery.
