This is part of our 100 Things in 2017 challenge. Here’s the full list.
Historically, the Heathman Hotel in downtown Portland has always done a proper British tea service, but in the last year management of Headwaters passed to Vitaly Paley, whose Russian-inspired cuisine has powered his restaurant Kachka to the top of a lot of lists. So now their tea service includes Russian flavor, and we can’t resist that kind of draw for long.
We brought our good friends to help us enjoy this, and enjoy we all did. Instead of the usual cucumber sandwiches and Earl Grey, there was smoked caravan-style tea and blini with caviar. So good. If you enjoy tea and tiny foods, this is the place for you.
