A Piece of Piccadilly: For the first time in its 312 year history, fine British grocer and tea purveyor Fortnum & Mason is opening its first solely operated restaurant and concept store outside of the UK.

Look & Feel: Located on the ground floor of K11 Musea, the 7,000-square-foot space is split across two floors, with a retail shop on the first floor and a swish dining room and bar on the second. The refined restaurant area features soft pastel hues and sweeping harbor views.

On the Menu: Expect all the Fortnum & Mason favorites, from beef Wellington and Welsh rarebit to the knickerbocker glory and Scotch egg, which the brand invented.

The retail store, meanwhile, will feature Fortnum & Mason’s teas and biscuits as well as wine, spirits, Champagne, cheese, caviar and preserves. There’s even a special Musea blend of tea that’s exclusive to the location and a fresh baked in-store biscuit, too.

Great For: Decadent afternoon tea, of course.

FYI: Fortnum & Mason has been a long time supplier to the British royal family, even creating a tea specifically for King Edward VII. How’s that for the royal treatment?
