7-Course Degustazione Menu
For appetizer, a traditional delicacy – roasted langoustine with potato puree and black truffle. The langoustine is slow-cooked and grilled to perfection, resulting a tender and succulent meat. Its sweetness combines harmoniously with the creamy potato puree, while the deep aroma of black truffle adds another layer of complexity to the dish, allowing the taste buds to luxuriate in the rich autumn ambiance.
Blue lobster with sweet and sour pumpkin puree and sage is a dish where the lobster takes the spotlight, cleverly incorporating autumn flavors of pumpkin and sage. To retain its juicy texture, the lobster is cooked at low temperature with its flavor enhanced with the addition of the distinctive lobster reduction sauce. The fragrance and softness of pumpkin puree, combined with the fresh sage, presents a sweet and sour taste that beautifully complements the oceanic flavor of the lobster, creating a delightful harmony that lingers on the palate.
