Food and Food: Las Vegas and Travels12 Aug 2009 01:18 pm

There are a few places to partake in high tea in Las Vegas, the more well known being at the Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons and the Bellagio. In addition, the legendary Mandarin Oriental will be opening at City Center in December, bringing along their famous high tea served with Mariage Frères tea.

Wanting something light on our last day before traveling back home, we reserved a table at the Petrossian Bar at the Bellagio for high tea. While it would be too perfect if it overlooked the gorgeous gardens there, you still get an interesting view of the busy lobby or casino. Not your typical tea service. It is only served from 2-5, and reservations are mandatory, I believe.

For around $40 you get a pot of tea from the varied selection, as well as a choice of four sandwiches from a long-ish list, as well as fruit tarts and sweets and scones with cream and preserves.

It was a wonderful snack, and we were well taken care of from start to finish. I can imagine returning with my mom or girlfriends to indulge again.

    How does it compare to Four Seasons? Our standard choice.
    Ritz Carlton was non memorable to be honest.

    I have never been fortunate enough to have gone to the Four Seasons for high tea! Although I heard the atmosphere is nicest in Vegas when compared to other high tea services.
