Lady Camellia, Tea Room on Prospect, to Open Feb. 22
The couple that brought you Macaron Bee on Wisconsin Avenue has opened another business. This one is a tea room -- Lady Camellia -- at 3261 Prospect St., NW, next to Booeymonger's. (Camellia is the botanical name for tea.)
Yes, it will offer Macaron Bee's classics, along with scones, croissants, tea cakes, sandwiches, tartlets and mini cupcakes. There is also a full English tea on the menu.
Business owners Deborah and Han Kim have renovated the space which was once Tuscany Cafe with a pink and white decor and wallpaper from Britain. They had a soft landing over Valentine's weekend and plan to open the shop this Saturday. The new place will also serve as the main kitchen for their macarons up the street at Macaron Bee as well as an office.
