French-Style Afternoon Tea
You can now enjoy authentic French-style afternoon tea in downtown Seoul. Le Gouter Afternoon Tea Set at SIGNIEL Seoul's The Lounge is the creation of three-Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alleno.
The afternoon tea culture - sipping tea with light snack late in the day - started in Britain, but today, many countries in Europe enjoy the same culture. Sweden has its own coffee break dubbed fika, and Germans enjoy their teas and snacks in different ways. In France, Le Gouter comes around 4 p.m.

At SIGNIEL Seoul's The Lounge, you can enjoy dishes from the menu put together by three-Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alleno, along with a wide variety of beverages

'Le Gouter SIGNIEL,' offered at SIGNIEL Seoul's The Lounge, is the French-style afternoon tea set with a twist on Le Gouter. Yannick Alleno, a chef with three Michelin stars, was behind this. And he's elevated the set to an art form, highlighted by the luxurious, gold dessert stand. This isn't your average afternoon tea.
Custard tarte topped with peach, pistachio chou with a Mediterranean flavor, scone with lemon, crispy calisson -- a popular dessert in Aix-en-Provence -- and orange-flavored, St Tropez-style cake will make your afternoon sweet and delicious. You can also enjoy desserts with twists. Pan bagnat sandwich with grilled tuna and kalamata olives, and olive focaccia with herbs and tomatoes pack a bit of a salty punch.

The Lounge offers a spectacular view from the 79th floor.

For beverages to go along with these desserts, you can choose from teas by the top French brand Dammann Freres, coffee blend with seven top-quality beans, and Marc Hebrat champagne. There will be two time slots to order Le Gouter SIGNIEL, first from 12 noon to 3 p.m., and then from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. It's 100,000 won per two guests.
