Looking for the ultimate in socially distant dining? Notch8 Restaurant at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, has the perfect solution, as they plan to relaunch Afternoon Tea in the Window service starting Monday, August 17, 2020.
Afternoon Tea in the Window will be available Monday through Friday with a single 2pm seating. Guests will have an exclusively unique dining experience at Vancouver’s “Castle in the City” in a street-level window display on West Georgia Street. The limited-time tea service gives Vancouverites looking for isolated dining options the opportunity to enjoy afternoon tea for two in a space that is entirely their own.
Tea goers will enjoy an intimate afternoon tea experience surrounded by custom art created by Mandy Lau, a Vancouver-based fashion illustrator. Lau, inspired by thoughts of afternoon tea and enjoying time with family and close friends, was pulled towards the idea of an exterior street scene inside an interior – a kind of fantasy world for passersby to stop and peer into. Created both traditionally, using graphite and ink, and digitally, the street scene perspective was illustrated to provide a sense of depth, with focus always resting on the tea table and the diners at the center of it all.
Afternoon Tea in the Window is $69 per person, reservations are required and can be made online at notch8-dining.com/afternoon-tea. With only the single 2pm seating available Afternoon Tea in the Window will sell out so it is recommended to make reservations for this exclusive tea experience as soon as possible.
If you miss out on Afternoon Tea in the Window or are looking for a traditional afternoon tea experience, Notch8 Restaurant is now serving traditional afternoon tea every Saturday and Sunday, with seatings at 12:00pm and 2:00pm. Reservations for weekend Afternoon Tea are also required.
