Discover the Magic of Christmas at The Westbury
- Wed, 6 Nov 2019
The Westbury is quite simply synonymous with special occasions and none more so, than ‘the most wonderful time of the year’.
The Westbury are inviting you to celebrate the festive season at Dublin’s most luxurious address to enjoy a Winter-Warming Festive Afternoon Tea and Flambé Irish Coffee.
This Christmas, visitors and guests will be dazzled by the creativity of The Westbury’s pastry chefs and their specially created Festive Afternoon Tea – a much loved tradition for many. Served in the beautiful surrounds of The Gallery, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy festive fare in its cosy, elegant surrounds.
Our Festive Afternoon Tea menu is filled with inspiration from the past and takes a nostalgic twist on some traditional festive flavours – a tower of delicious savoury sandwiches, bite-sized brioches and bakes enjoyed in the elegant gallery, with crisp linens, bandbox-striped bone china cups, silver teapots, crystal champagne flutes and the tinkling of ivories in the background. At the heart of the offering comes a supremely inventive choice of patisserie, including festive verrines starring whipped ruby chocolate ganache and raspberry gel, the Christmas Snowman crafted from white chocolate and coconut tart; Choux pastries filled with Gianduja pastry crème and Mascarpone Chantilly; and the Christmas Opera cake, a divine creation of pistachio, raspberry and caramelia. An array of festive savoury delicacies, such as Smoked Turkey breast salad come together to create the most luscious Christmas treat.
Festive Afternoon Tea at The Westbury is available from €55 per person, or for a particularly indulgent experience, from €70 per person when served with Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut NV or Perrier – Jouët Blason Rosé NV. The Festive Afternoon Tea will be available from November 18th 2019 until 6th January 2020.
The Westbury has also introduced a carefully crafted and highly popular Vegan Afternoon Tea featuring a specially created selection of vegan sandwiches (guacamole tostada with black bean, chilli and coriander; and tofu and
Asian cabbage slaw) and a range of miniature handmade deserts, from the mango-infused Tropical Globe to the strawberry, lemon and chocolate Three Later Cube.
For those guests looking to treat themselves to a traditional Irish Coffee at its very best, there’s an opportunity to enjoy a WILDE flambé Irish Coffee, prepared at the table and a true visual treat!
The nutty, dark chocolate notes of a specialty coffee from Honduras are heightened by blending with the mellow and caramel flavours of the Midleton Method and Madness single grain whisky, which results in a delightfully light and nutty concoction, with a hint of sweet spice.
