Royal Wedding Celebrations At London Hilton on Park Lane
Royal Wedding Of Prince William To Kate Middleton
March 07, 2011
LONDON - London Hilton on Park Lane is rolling out the red carpet for this year’s much anticipated Royal Wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton. In the heart of Mayfair, London Hilton on Park Lane is close to all that London has to offer, from musicals and theatres to world-famous landmarks, such as Hyde Park and Trafalgar Square. Located on the prestigious Park Lane, the hotel is only a stone’s throw away from Buckingham Palace, making it an ideal location to celebrate the day as the wedding unfolds.
To commemorate the upcoming Royal Wedding, Podium Restaurant at London Hilton on Park Lane has created a limited edition ‘Sapphire Afternoon Tea.’ Created by executive chef Anthony Marshall, this special tea takes inspiration from the sapphire engagement ring presented to Kate Middleton by Prince William, including references to the cool colour of this precious stone in ingredients and decorations throughout.
This delicious variation of the hotel’s celebrated afternoon tea includes fresh open sandwiches, chocolate chip scones, white chocolate cupcakes with ‘bouquet’ icing, a shortbread ‘wedding cake’ with gold leaf and a cheesecake & coconut parcel. As a proud member of The Tea Guild, Podium’s afternoon tea is recognised as offering a high standard of tea service. The ‘Sapphire Afternoon Tea’ is available from 26 April to 1 May 2011, from 2 to 6 p.m. daily, priced at £32 per person or £40 including a glass of Champagne. To book, please call +44 (0)20 7208 4022 or visit www.podiumrestaurant.com
Boasting sweeping views across London’s spectacular skyline, with Buckingham Palace prominently in sight, Michelin-starred Galvin at Windows Restaurant and Bar on the 28th floor of London Hilton on Park Lane is another ideal venue to celebrate the festivities and toast to the Royal couple with a specially created ‘Royal Wedding Lunch’ menu. Exquisitely designed by André Garrett, head chef, Galvin at Windows, the menu features divine ingredients such as fresh dorset crab, kohlrabi, espelette & honeycomb and poached fillet of wild turbot, oyster, cucumber & wasabi. The menu is available from the 26 April to 29 April, from £45 per person from 12 to 3 p.m. daily. On 29 April the £45 menu will be limited in availability so book early to avoid disappointment.
