Gourmet tea and food pairings one night only at Alize in Las Vegas


Las Vegas has plenty of places to drink craft beers, Champagne and margaritas. So what about tea?

French restaurant Alize at the Top of the Palms Casino Resort overlooking the Strip fills the gap with a tea-pairing dinner on June 16. The seven-course Tea Pairing in the Sky dinner celebrates the 2016 World Tea Expo coming to the Las Vegas Convention Center frm June 13 through 17.

Menu items include a first course of beef carpaccio and marinated heirloom tomatoes paired with Lao Shu Hong Cha Old Tree Yunnan Black Tea, and a fourth course of duck breast and abalone mushroom with Que She “Sparrow’s Tongue” Wuyi Rock Wulong Tea.


Former Bon Apetit editor-in-chief Barbara Fairchild hosts the event; executive chef Mark Purdy creates the dishes to match top teas from Seven Cups Fine Teas.

Dinner begins at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $175 per person until Saturday and $220 after that date. VIPS who buy $300 tickets includes the meal plus bottomless Champagne, a gift bag and a meet and greet before the event with Fairchild.
