Just in time for summer, the iconic Forbes Triple Five-Star Ocean House on the scenic Rhode Island shore will unveil the next wave of its renowned seasonal culinary pop-up series with the introduction of the Sipping Terrace. In partnership with gin distiller Sipsmith, one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s “best gin brands to try right now,” the Sipping Terrace will feature epicurean delights and cocktails for afternoon tea and dinner parties of up to six people, allowing for intimate, socially distanced soirées. Reminiscent of an afternoon in the English countryside, a collection of greenhouses will stand between lime and lemon trees alongside the resort’s putting green lawn, an ideal spot to view Watch Hill’s spectacular summer sunsets. Inside each greenhouse, guests will gather around a bistro table set with vibrant fine china. Offering a modern interpretation on traditional tea fare, afternoon tea will feature savory tea sandwiches accompanied by classic afternoon tea scones served with Devonshire cream, lemon curd, and preserves. For dinner, guests will enjoy a delicious and creative three-course upscale menu including compressed watermelon and fennel salad with goat cheese and a flavorful main course including scallops, roasted chicken, garlic escargot, and memorable side dishes, served family-style. Officially beginning on Thursday, June 3, afternoon tea is at 3:00 pm, and dinner seatings start at 5:30 pm.
