Fresh Eats: Tuscan Tea Room

On a warm August Sunday, I had the pleasure of having afternoon high tea with Gilt City as a guest of Tina Kirkpatrick, the Gilt City Seattle "Mayor"(or curator.) It was so much fun catching up over tea, scones and a variety of sandwiches & treats! 

A vision of Aimee Pellegrini (whose family also owns Seattle staple La Rustica), The Tuscan Tea Room in West Seattle is a hidden gem that's everything a lady and her girlfriends need for an elegant soiree. The ornate decor and tea sets are collections Aimee, daughter Nina and team have picked up from many an estate sale. One kind gentleman even donated his late wife's entire collection of tea sets and plateware after her passing! 

Tuscan Tea Room serves brunch, dinner, happy hour as well as tea time. They also do catering and special events both in the Tea Room and outside/for pick-up. Their extensive tea menu is carefully selected by Aimee and team, and includes teas from around the world as well as special house blends. Tuscan Tea Room's dinner, brunch and wine menus are equally impressive, with specialty dishes that stay true to Tuscan and Venetian cooking styles.
