Purchased a variety of cookies to suppliment our Rehearsal Dinner menu across the street at Art of Entertaining. They tasted like Heaven! So many comments from our guests. Had the French Macaroons in 4 flavors, Chocolate Bliss and Coney Island Hearts. Yum!

Not typically. Dress is casual. I do sometimes see people dressed for high tea when there is a large party there.
