The Catered Affair is proudly affiliated with three restaurants, The Courtyard Tea Room & Map Room Tea Lounge in Boston at the Boston Public Library and the Winsor House Inn, a charming restaurant and tavern in the historic town of Duxbury.
The Courtyard Tea Room is a popular place for afternoon tea near Copley Square. Under The Catered Affair’s management since 2009, the highly-acclaimed afternoon tea is the perfect complement to the Italianate courtyard and historic McKim building the Courtyard Tea Room overlooks. Served Wednesday through Sunday, our afternoon tea offers guests a premium selection of loose leaf teas and gourmet tea sandwiches, scones, and petit fours. For the ultimate dining experience, the Courtyard Tea Room is the perfect spot for an unforgettable afternoon tea in Boston.
The revolution is here! The Map Room Tea Lounge is Boston’s first tea-inspired bar and lounge. With industrial accents and a cozy intellectual vibe, the Map Room Tea Lounge draws inspiration from the literature and innovation of the 1800s to create a salón for the modern world within the historical Boston Public Library. Join us for author-inspired tea cocktails (yes, that’s right—tea cocktails!) and casual a la carte options, like artisanal cheese & charcuterie and an inventive selection of tartines. Grab a seat in the lounge with friends or sidle up to our 10-seat tea bar, manned by our team of tea mixologists. In addition to a stellar menu, enjoy Wisdom Wednesdays with our visiting tea-leaf reader for insights from the bottom of your cup, and live instrumental music from local student musicians on Thursdays.
The 1803 Winsor House Inn, under the Safford-Weilbrenner and Marconi Family ownership since 2011, is a neighborly inn and restaurant located in the South Shore’s Snug Harbor. Open Tuesday through Sunday and Monday through Sunday during summer peak season, the Winsor House Restaurant welcomes diners to a farm to table dining experience year round. The menu showcases exquisite New England fair alongside the welcoming, fire-warmed tavern. A local staple, the Winsor House Inn also houses private inn accommodations and guestrooms for those looking for a beautiful seaside get away.
