The Art of Dried Age Beef
The art of dry-aging beef is a revered tradition that elevates a simple cut of meat into a gastronomic masterpiece. The process entails aging the beef in a meticulously controlled environment, which allows it to develop a profound concentration of flavors and an outstandingly tender texture. The outcome is a rich, roasted flavor that stands out from its non-aged counterparts, offering a dining experience that’s truly exceptional.
And for this round, we enjoyed the vast variety of their delectable dishes which indeed delicious and did not disappoint me at all.
Stuffed Escargots Bourguignon
Our dining experience began with a delectable serving of half a dozen French snails, thoughtfully prepared with garlic, unsalted butter, and English parsley. These escargots were a true delight, showcasing a tender texture and a delightful infusion of savory, garlicky flavors that harmonized flawlessly with the rich, buttery undertones.
The Smoked Salmon Salad
The salad presented a symphony of flavors, a delightful composition of garden-fresh greens, crisp apple slices, earthy beetroot, exquisite Norwegian smoked salmon, and a homemade raspberry vinaigrette.
These tomatoes are carefully diced and then tossed with the most exquisite extra virgin olive oil, imparting a luscious silkiness to every bite. Fresh basil leaves, picked at the peak of their vibrancy, infuse the mix with their aromatic essence. When it comes together; it produce an explosion of fresh and zesty flavors, crafting a refreshing and delightful appetizer. Crafted with care, it blended the tartness of ripe raspberries with a touch of sweetness, resulting in a dressing that elevated the entire salad.

Tender and succulent, the chicken brings you with the delicious tempting delights which you will definately fall in love. Accompanying the chicken leg were olives, capers, onions, a selection of fragrant herbs, and a delectable creamed pepper sauce.The combination of these ingredients, along with the aromatic herbs, enhanced the overall profile of the dish, infusing it with depth and complexity.
Seafood Saffron Risotto
Brimming with an abundance of peeled prawns, plump mussels, tender squids, and succulent stone clams, it was a seafood lover’s dream. The seafood, cooked to perfection, exuded freshness and flavor with each bite.
What truly elevated this dish was the saffron-infused rice. Saffron, the world’s most precious spice, added a touch of luxury to the risotto. Its subtle, floral notes and vibrant hue transformed the dish into a masterpiece of taste and aesthetics. The creamy consistency of the risotto enveloped the seafood, creating a luscious and indulgent texture that was nothing short of exceptional.
