“The Villa Afternoon Tea adds another dimension to the old-world services offered at The Villa,’’ said proprietor Barton G. Weiss. “With our round-the-clock butler service for hotel guests, remarkable continental menu at The Dining Room and palazzo-like surroundings, The Villa Afternoon Tea is a natural progression of the multiple ways in which the public can enjoy the former Versace Mansion.”
The Villa Afternoon Tea Service affords another opportunity for discriminating guests to enjoy the lush surroundings inside the former Versace Mansion.

The mansion also has quickly become South Florida’s most exclusive venue.
The Dining Room at The Villa By Barton G., also opened in March, already is winning critical acclaim. Among the signature dishes: The Villa Salad with nitrogenized Caesar dressing; Rack of Lamb with Greek Yogurt Jelly Cubes; and The Villa Soufflé, a delectable dessert that marries a raspberry soufflé with passion fruit and white chocolate sorbets. With continental cuisine served in the signature pebble mosaic Dining Room, The Villa offers artistically crafted presentations and memorable dishes seven nights a week from 7:00 p.m. to midnight.
