This swanky new restaurant is well worth trying out. Located in the recently built office complex in Liguanea, you pass through a lush, plant-filled atrium to get to the restaurant. Here the décor is impressive, with a floor-to-ceiling wall feature of broken plates!
The menu is extensive and includes the signature dish – seared duck breast bruschetta with an herb mushroom confit, finished with a balsamic drizzle. There’s a gourmet sandwich selection and popular options include the crab cake muffin, pork belly sliders, lamb burger, and the marlin on toast topped with sliced otaheiti apple and fresh guacamole. Salads are varied – you might want to try the warm salad of grilled romaine, herb sautéed beets, chick peas, corn, onion and bell peppers topped with feta cheese.
There are several pasta dishes, including a curried goat pasta. On the seafood menu, the lobster tail simmered in a spicy coconut sauce is enticing. If meat is your preference you can try the braised lamb shank, rib-eye steak with roasted garlic and blue cheese crumble, or pork chops with herbs and a mango sticky Asian sauce.
You can choose from a selection of sides to go with your meal – try the cranberry sweet potato mash or almond rice pilaf. For dessert, heaven comes in a bite of the deconstructed cheesecake trifle, with fresh berries, caramel popcorn and fresh whipped cream. There’s a full bar serving a range of wines. To keep things interesting, the menu is changed every three months.
Patrons can choose to dine inside the restaurant or in the outside atrium. Open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday, from 11:00am to 10:00pm (closed on Sunday), the restaurant caters to everyone including families with children (who enjoy the freedom of the atrium) to business folk, as well as couples wanting an intimate, romantic dinner spot.
