high tea (where to go while the ritz is out of commission?)

winnie | Mar 8, 200205:29 PM     5

does anyone know where a group of 20-40 people might go for afternoon tea? that is, scones, tarts, cuke sandwiches, clotted cream & the whole bit? the ritz would be ideal were it not closed & under renovation. and word is that the new one on avery st is no match. we need a place within the city proper (either boston or cambridge), easily reachable by public transportation or at least relatively convenient to get to (ie., doesn't require caravaning -- in other words, Concord Inn is out). oh, another stipulation: the place should also be able to accomodate said number of people without having to shove them into a separate function room. it would be ideal if it weren't too exorbitant as well.

i'd be grateful for any suggestions at all, whether they satisfy my requirements or no (at least i can look into the possibility).
