Located in the large greenhouse in the back of the boutique Enchanting Embellishments, Mary Ann’s Tea Room is an ostentatious scene -- think Scarlett O’Hara meets Marie Antoinette. The Central West End lunchtime eatery is named after Mary Ann Allison, the late socialite and building’s former owner who tragically passed away in 2009 while trying to save her pets from a house fire. Mary Ann’s Tea Room serves classic “ladies who lunch” fare, such as chicken salad with grapes on a croissant, quiche and smoked salmon. The restaurant excels at soups, including the must-try crab bisque that is loaded with lump crabmeat and garnished with caviar. The savory chicken pie and smoked-salmon duo are also noteworthy options, as are the boozy tea infusions. Take you mom and grandmother on a lunch date, and they will be impressed.
