The secret garden: another high-end tea spot opens

Windy | Sep 5, 200305:15 AM     3

I've been watching the enticing signs for the opening of the Secret Garden, a new tea salon on Lincoln near 7th Avenue in the Sunset district. They finally opened this week.

Thanks to some quick footwork by my pal The Dairy Queen, we've ascertained that they'll be open Tuesday-Saturday (Sunday?), serving variously priced tea menus with seatings at noon, 2, and 4 p.m.

Prices start at $10.95 and go up to $18.95 depending on the food selection; clearly they're shooting for the Lovejoy's bridal shower crowd, or perhaps the mythical ladies who lunch. Reservations are suggested, although I'm afraid I don't have the number in front of me.

TDQ didn't see the garden, so it will remain secret for the time being. She did say the front building was quite small, so perhaps the garden is lush and ample.

I think I'll stick to Samovar and Peet's for the time being, but would be curious if anyone drops by for a cuppa and what they think.
