L'Opéra, the Award-winning and Delhi's finest French Pâtisserie, Boulangerie and Salon de Thé (Tea Room), officially launched yet another Salon de Thé in Delhi at GK2, M Block Market on Saturday. To celebrate the occasion, the Samandari family (the Founding family) organised a High Tea for over 100 guests that included Ambassadors and High Commissioners, personalities from the world of business, arts and fashion, socialites, patrons and respected members of the media.
To mark the event, Kazem Samandari, Executive Chairman formally addressed the gathering and thanked everyone for the support. "Though we started very small, we now have 16 outlets in total and plan to open many more in the future. It's been a wonderful journey so far and I would like to thank each one of you for trusting us and being by our side," he said during the event.
The brand also rolled out the red carpet to welcome the honoured guests and bite-sized savouries and mini desserts were served along with juices and hot and cold beverages but what captured everyone's attention was a stunning display of colourful macarons right at the entrance.

Featuring Louis XVI style furniture created in wood and marble tables adoring white and pink carnations, large glass façades facing the busy sidewalk and the soothing strains of French music playing in the background, the outlet instantly transports you back to Paris.
