Tea Time at the Bristol: The dream, to eat in or take away

It’s time to spread your cheer. Let your light dresses bloom and your sunglasses bloom: the Bristol garden has just reopened.

An island of softness in the heart of Paris, its opening is always an event for lovers of tranquillity and fresh air. For it’s here, among the hornbeams and roses, that Jardin Français sets up its terrace. A carpet of greenery, water features, seats with green and white cushions by Schumacher, the hustle and bustle of Paris seems so far away. But not its delights. In the capital’s largest Palace garden, for example, lunch is spent wondering whether the most delicious thing is the view of the flower beds. Or the bouquets of flavors of langoustine ravioli with basil and lemon.

So far away from the hustle and bustle of the world just around the corner, we forget the passage of time. But never Tea Time. A must-have this spring, designed by Pastry Chef Yu Tanaka to be as fresh as silk, and as irresistible as sunny days. So, as you sip your lavender black tea, place your clotted cream on tender scones with crunchy hazelnut slivers, and let Tahitian vanilla reveal its aromas of caramel and almond under the chocolate of an emblematic chewy keychain.


Tea time to go

But this season, happiness is so great that you can even take some with you to be carried everywhere. L’Épicerie des Ateliers now offers a Palace version of Tea Time to go. For the occasion, Chef Johan Giacchetti has created cocoa treasures in his chocolate factory, inspired by the Bristol pastries. Divine delicacies accompanied by a delicate lemon iced tea.

In ultra-chic picnic mode, the spirit of Le Bristol floats along the quays of Ile Saint-Louis, meanders among the chestnut trees of Place Dauphine, caresses the ponds of the Tuileries, or elegantly weaves its way through the palms of the Jardin du Luxembourg. To open a dreamy parenthesis, wherever you are.

Tea Time formulas available daily from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Café Antonia and Jardin Français (weather permitting). Reservations required.
