On the Philly Tea Trail

By Carolyn Wyman
Originally published in the Philadelphia Inquirer/philly.com March 2018

Is there a better way to spend a bleak winter mid-afternoon than sipping tea and eating pastries in a classy restaurant? If so, I can’t think of one. But which classy restaurant?

Between the end of tea service at the Ritz-Carleton (with the dawn of Richard Sandoval’s Latin-American restaurant Aquimero) and the Four Seasons (with its 2015 closing) the high-end tea scene in Philly isn’t what it used to be. It’s better — less stuffy than in the white-gloved, floral china days but just as rewarding, I discovered as I downed tea, scones and food that doubles as artwork at Center City Philly’s four big restaurant/hotel teas.

The Rittenhouse

The Rittenhouse is now the only hotel in town still offering daily tea in its own dedicated space. Named the Mary Cassatt Room after a few of the artist’s sketches that hang on the wall and the hotel’s location on the site of her brother’s townhouse, it faces a garden terrace that adds six tables in nice weather. Tea servers AJ Memmo and Kidist Anosa have actually selected the 16 teas they serve, and discuss them with authority. The food is as good and as fussy (in a good way) as you’d expect at this price (almost twice the competition, despite modest portions). Days after , I was still thinking about their orange-accented edamame hummus on radish and avocado, prosciutto and onion jam sandwich.

This is also the only local tea with live music (by a harpist, Fridays through Sundays). At one point I looked up to see an elegantly dressed young mother attending a tea shower swaddling her baby: a Mary Cassatt painting come to life. $55 (including sparkling wine) or $80 (with champagne mousse) per person, 2-5 p.m. daily, 210 W. Rittenhouse Square, 215-546-9000, rittenhousehotel.com.

XIX

The Bellevue’s century-plus-old daily tea service took a hit with the modernization of the hotel’s dining spaces in 2007. Tea in the former Barrymore Room/now XIX Cafe is currently weekends only and pre-brewing, their teas are only descriptions on the menu instead of in containers of leaves to see and sniff (as at The Rittenhouse and Sofitel).

This is still a beautiful place to down a pot and pastry, featuring a 30-foot domed ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city. XIX’s solid three-tier presentation of the usual suspects will get an extra dose of flavor from edible flowers after XIX tea menu’s March 1/Flower Show reboot. Also new to that spring menu: a white tea in a glass pitcher made from a “bulb” of dried leaves and flowers that “blooms” as it steeps. $30 or $36 (with champagne and a chocolate-covered strawberry) per person, 2-4 p.m. Sat.-Sun., Hyatt at the Bellevue, 200 S. Broad St., 19th floor, 215-893-1234, hyatt.com.

Sofitel

The Philly branch of this French-based luxury hotel chain began offering high-season (Dec. 1 to March 31) daily tea service in its urban-chic Liberte Lounge four years ago. The nine teas are from the Paris-based Palais des Thes and chef Edward Hancock puts his chicken salad on a croissant: Otherwise the menu is similar to the competition (if slightly less refined). The table by the gas fireplace is the primo seat in cold weather, although my tea’s relax factor was marred by the anxious conversation of some businessmen meeting nearby. You could theoretically run into that at any tea in town though it would seem less likely at XIX or The Rittenhouse. $29 or $35 (with champagne or a mimosa) per person, 2-4 p.m. daily through March 31, at 120 S. 17th St., 215-569-8300, soifitel-phildelphia.com.

The Dandelion

Afternoon tea is an English tradition and Dandelion is an English pub that debuted with tea and scones on their mid-day menu. Four years ago, in response to diner demand, they added tea sandwiches and pastries. So what if teas in England are traditionally offered at hotels or tea houses?

Dandelion’s tea menu evidence the same kind of freewheeling attitude. Items might be English-inspired but this Stephen Starr stalwart is not a slave to authenticity at the expense of American enjoyment. The chocolate pudding cake on the sweets tray is more like a chocolate molten cake or super-rich brownie, and all the better for it. Dandelion also has the best macarons of any city tea (Dandelion pastry chef Abigail Dahan does double-duty at nearby Starr French bistro Parc). The smoked bacon and orange marmelade on pumpernickel was a savory revelation.

The tea selection is limited to a few Twinings and Teapigs (and don’t expect your server to provide much guidance). The Dandelion’s house-like space with multiple rooms is appropriately cozy. But the indie rock soundtrack (likely a consequence of the many different ways diners are using this place mid-day) can be jarring. The food really is the thing here. $50 for two people (a la carte options also available), 3-5 p.m. daily, 124 S. 18th St., 215-558-2500, thedandelionpub.com.

(2019 update: Fork, 306 Market St., and Frieda, 320 Walnut St., are two other Center City spots serving afternoon tea.)
