Destination Tea Notes: Hostess Doria Roberts takes afternoon tea seriously and consequently she expects you to arrive ahead of your reservation time to choose your tea, and to fully read your menu. Just do it, knowing that the payoff is a completely spot-on, delicious afternoon tea. Doria may have given me a “Hello? It’s clearly printed on your menu” look when I was surprised to find out we had another course coming (the Digestiv), but I would gladly forego a super-solicitous host for a taste of chef Calavino Donati’s tea sandwiches and scones.
