Spring arrives early at The Brown Hotel with the March 6 launch of the new spring menu for the popular Sunday Tea in the Grand Lobby. Spend a romantic and elegant afternoon in the historic lobby of The Brown Hotel. The Sunday Tea includes the Classical Hour of Piano from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, featuring Ms. Nada Loutfi playing the music of the greatest piano composers.
Ms. Loutfi performs internationally and has been the Artist in Residence of WUOL Classical 90.5, a soloist with The Louisville Orchestra, and has won 1st Prize at The Paris Conservatory. She has toured the states where she plays in rural areas and gives educational programs for children in schools.
A prix fixe tea menu accompanies the beautiful music. The Brown Hotel Executive Chef Laurent Géroli has created a new spring tea menu with gourmet savory finger sandwiches of: black forest ham on toasted sourdough bread, egg with artichokes and chives on rye, and lemon and red pepper hummus on 9 grain cereal bread. The menu also features a sweet course of: blueberry scone with Devonshire cream, mini coffee éclair, kiwi tartlet with Yuzu pastry cream, white chocolate mousse brownie, and a selection of Novus teas served in the Grand Lobby. The cost is $15 per person plus 6% sales tax and 20% gratuity. The Sunday Tea seating is at 3:30 pm. Advance reservations for the tea are required, and may be made by calling (502) 736-2996.
“The Grand Lobby is a magnificent setting to enjoy classical music,” said Brown Hotel assistant general manager Guy Genoud. ”Our lovely afternoon tea has become a very popular weekly event.”
