Welcome this French Tart

The ladies who lunch will love this — a French Tart. Get to know her around the first of March.

The Tart is a new tea room inspired by a French bistro, said founder Sharon McCullar, owner of the much-loved Glenwood Village Tearoom & Gift Shop. (No, she is not closing the tea room.) The eatery will be located on Edgemont off of Line Avenue near Uptown Shopping Center.

With seating only for about 40, it will provide an intimate gathering place to chat and gossip.

The eatery will offer such tasty goodies as sausage and cannelli bean cassoulet, lentil soup with vegetables and pork quenelle and chicken in calvados cream sauce. (Calvados is a French liqueur. But you knew that, didn’t you?)

And for dessert: Plum crisps with creme de cassis and chocolate Charlotte macaroons

"And to drink — mostly coffees," said McCullar. (Not just your ordinary coffee, either.)

Oh, and there will be a gift shop up front for browsing.
