THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS St. James Tearoom Restaurant Review

: Hostess Mary Alice Higbie has kept her British-style tea house thriving in the Southwestern desert on the strength of its lovely surroundings and notable food. The three-course tea, served on a traditional three-tiered platter, changes monthly, but it always blends old-fashioned and modern sensibilities beautifully: think smoked turkey salad, maple walnut crescents and pumpkin chai pots de crème. It's served with two pots of some of the most elegant teas in the world, hand-chosen by Higbie for flavor and variety. Lingering over this elegant meal for a full two hours while engaging in the lost art of conversation amid antique furniture, flower arrangements and an assortment of handmade hats---which you’re welcome to try on and wear during tea time---is the ultimate in relaxation. If it sounds all too ladylike, gentlemen needn’t balk---frequently the tearoom offers cigar nights.
