Heathman Hotel Begins Holiday Tea

heathmanhotelext2The Heathman’s Holiday Tea kicks off the day after Thanksgiving with three daily seatings from November 26, 2010 through January 9, 2011. Reservations will be available starting Friday, November 12th at 6:30 a.m. for this popular – and cherished – family tradition.

With the two-story tall Christmas tree and festive decorations throughout the historic tea court, the Heathman Restaurant’s annual Holiday Tea is perfect after shopping, with friends or as a family celebration. Seatings are daily at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Adults are $32 per person and the Peter Rabbit Tea for Little Sippers is $14 per person. After the holidays, Afternoon Tea continues throughout the year with a seating at 2 p.m. Monday to Friday and at noon and 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

“We love providing this Northwest twist on the traditional English tradition,” says Culinary Director Philippe Boulot. “Pastry Chef John Gayer adds his creativity with desserts from Hawaii and even house-made marshmallows.”
