Indulge yourself and celebrate a night of pure luxury with farmed sturgeon caviar and champagne, as Hugo’s presents a classic 4-Course Caviar Set Dinner Menu meticulously crafted by Hugo’s culinary team, a gastronomic journey with champagne pairing options.
Begin the journey with Steak Tartare a la Hofmann’s, composed of US prime beef tenderloin, quail eggs, capers, gherkins, onion and brandy dressing, prepared tableside in Hugo’s signature gueridon service. The steak tartare is decadently topped with 15 grams No. 2 Superior Oscietra Caviar. Superior Oscietra Caviar has a poppy texture and a mixed buttery and nutty taste that perfectly complements the vibrant flavours of the steak tartare. It is paired with a glass of Grand Gru Reserve N.V. Blanc de Blancs champagne from Launois Pere & Fils.
Dive into the Creamy Roscoff Onion Soup, a buttery white soup with poached leek that is topped with 15 grams No. 1 Baerii Caviar. This extremely versatile caviar with a marked taste is a light approach to match with the sweet and rich soup.
For the main course, relish Butter Poached French Sea Bass with 15 grams No. 5 Royal Oscietra Caviar, fennel puree, artichoke and beurre blanc. Royal Oscietra Caviar is considered to be the most refined caviar with a flavour that is similar to the wild ones. Its strong nutty flavour pairs very well with the acidity and rich aroma of the French sea bass. It is paired with a glass of Grand Cru Mesnil Sur Oger, Special Club 2008 Blanc de Blancs champagne from Launois Pere & Fils.
End the night on a sweet note with the classic Japanese Strawberry Romanoff, served with 15 grams No. 5 Royal Oscietra Caviar and French vanilla cream. The Japanese strawberry, in season, has a well-balanced sweet and sour taste, and makes an interesting combination with the strong flavour of the Royal Oscietra Caviar. It is paired with a glass of Premier Cru Mareuil-sur-Ay, N.V. Rose Champagne from Marc Hebrart.
