Afternoon tea by Gucci? Oh dear!
Paris just got a little more chic: The Peninsula Paris, one of the most exclusive addresses in the city, is teaming up with Maison Gucci for an ultra-stylish new tea service, in honor of the week of this summer’s haute couture.
Served in the beautifully opulent and gold-adorned Le Lobby restaurant and terrace and prepared with ingredients sourced from the hotel’s rooftop garden, the new afternoon tea is by pastry chef Anne Coruble, who was recently hailed as an emerging young pastry chef to watch. by Michelin in 2021.
Expect treats adorned with a Gucci monogram print and flavored with caramelized tobacco and Japanese green shiso, plus three new Italian cocktails from the hotel’s head bartender, Ivo Correia Rocha. Try the Blind For Love drink with grappa, amaro, aperol, black cherry liqueur and fresh lemon juice.
Want more haute cuisine? The Peninsula Paris, with luxury status, also hosts the two-star Michelin gourmet restaurant, L’Oiseau Blanc, on the roof of the hotel; a signature Cantonese restaurant, Lili; the ground floor La Terrasse Kléber on Avenue Kléber; and Le Rooftop for drinks and al fresco dining. Every Sunday, a brunch worthy of Marie-Antoinette is served in the Lobby with just about every delicacy imaginable.
The Peninsula Paris x Gucci Afternoon Tea is available at the Lobby from Monday to Saturday, until July 11, 2022.
