Meet Kim, the illustrious manager who works with her team to create the magic of The St. James Market.
Kim is a tea master at The St. James Tearoom who strives to create the absolute best experience possible our guests.
A true connoisseur of fine dining, she enjoys talking about her favorite wine festivals and culinary experiences around the country.
One of her favorite restaurants is The French Laundry in Yountville, CA where she celebrated an anniversary earlier this year. @_tfl_
Read about her experience and how she drew inspiration from the visit below:
How far in advance did you book your reservation?
“The French Laundry is one of the most difficult restaurants to get a reservation for in the world.
I checked their reservations page numerous times a day. Finally, about a week and a half before the reservation date, that 1 seating time opened up!”
Working for a company that strives to surprise and delight probably raises your standards; how did they measure up to the level of service you strive to provide guests every day?
“I told the concierge we were celebrating 4 years together the day of our reservation. From the moment we walked in the door, the hostess greeted us with "Happy Anniversary" and glasses of champagne.
When we sat down at our table we were given a lovely place setting with the signature clothespin attached to the napkin.
The restaurant personalized our menus with "Happy Anniversary Kimberly and Don" across the top.
Everything tasted wonderful and I couldn't get over the presentation of every course.
I just couldn't believe the experience and I won't ever forget it as long as I live--they never use the same ingredient twice!”
How did it inspire you?
“Food must not only taste good but look good. I look at The St. James Tearoom and Market through eyes that want to see lovely things in a lovely setting. I try to draw inspiration every day through the smallest of details and incorporate them in what I do.”
Where my earmuffs at y’all?!💚🧙🏻♀️☘️🌱👶🏻✨🌾
Anyone else out there who’d end up adopting a couple of Mandrake’s & a family of Bowtruckles too?! 🤓🤣⠀
"Instead of roots, a small, muddy & extremely ugly baby popped out of the earth. The leaves were growing right out of his head. He had pale green, mottled skin, & was clearly bawling at the top of his lungs."⠀

What HP Class would you be bad at!!✨🌱⠀
There wasn’t a golf cart behind this one. I would have still probably set the alarm off when hiding from team leaders though if there was.
