// The Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City Petite Socialite Afternoon Tea //

Last week, I found out I had a last minute business trip back home in DC. Going back home to DC for the first time after getting married and moving to Sonoma was both emotional and so much fun! The best thing about going home is being able to spend time with family and friends. Sitting at home, talking to my mom for hours over chai and her home cooking was just what I needed. Of course I love married life and our home in Sonoma, but there’s something about going back home that makes you feel so comforted and loved. During my trip, I was so happy to meet up with friends, I was soon going out almost everyday from happy hours at City Center to dinners with my best friends. While I loved going out, by the end of my trip, all I wanted to do was sit in the kitchen and have quality mom time! Thankfully, I was able to find to balance of family and friend time along with work. To celebrate one of my most memorable trips, I wanted to take my mom somewhere relaxing and fun where we could get dressed up, chat, and of course take pictures. Yes, I get it all from my beautiful spirited graceful mom! The Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City was the perfect place to enjoy our Saturday and their famed afternoon tea experience. We selected the “Petite Socialite”, a new Afternoon Tea Party offering. In addition to a private Afternoon Tea reservation in the club lounge, the package included edible glitter dipped fruit, delicate French macaroons, assorted miniature cupcakes, and sparkling cider served in champagne flutes. Here are a few of our favorite moments!

#DiningSpotlight – The Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City Petite Socialite Afternoon High Tea

  • Tea Experience: Anyone who knows me knows I love afternoon tea. Having experienced high tea around the world in places such as London, Paris, and Kolkata, I am always excited to try new afternoon tea venues. The Ritz-Carlton at Pentagon City’s afternoon tea was everything I would expect from The Ritz and then some! The Ritz-Carlton truly focuses on the entire experience. For instance, before selecting our teas, we were able  to smell the teas leaves and learn about the different options.
  • Mini savory dishes: The executive chef at The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City, Sriram Hariharan, personally explained the details and flavors of the mini tarts, toasts, and savory dishes. The Ritz also took our dietary restrictions (vegetarian) into account and we could tastes the flavors and textures of each savory bite.
  • Desserts: The crescendo of any high tea is the desserts. The delicate sizes ensure you have just enough room to try all the tasty treats. My mom fell in love with the jelly infused fruit and macaroons. I delighted in everything chocolate from pistachio flavored tartlets to the delectable mini cakes.
  • The Ambiance: Everything about the Petite Socialite an Afternoon High Tea was thoughtfully curated. Sitting in the private club lounge, we had views of the Pentagon, National Monument, and Washington D.C.
  • The Staff: Our servers at the Ritz went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and delighted in the experience. My Insta fam loved seeing the tour of the lounge and Tea on my Instagram stories!
