The swanky restaurant may seem, at first brush, intimidatingly posh and severely stiff, but the warm, inviting service immediately puts one at ease.
And, for a fine-dining spot, the food is portioned rustically. Exemplary cooking aside, such is the generous portioning that the pricing becomes so very value-for-money.
1) Free-Range Poached Eggs
($26) layered upon a pool of truffle potato cream and sauteed porcini mushrooms, and crowned with White Truffle
shavings ($60 at $10 per gm). This was seasonal food at its orgasmic best, masterfully exquisite and beautifully executed.
2) Prosciutto di Parma con Gnocco Fritto
($26): crisp battered and fried morsels of chewy romagna dough encircled by pink ribbons of the finest Italian Parma ham.
3) Ravioli al Funghi Porcini
($30): bite-sized pockets of veal slathered in a velvety porcini mushroom cream - Hearty and comforting but so very refined.
4) Acquerello Risotto Mare
($36): perfectly al dente, brimming with a rich lobster consomme, and dotted liberally with squid rings, fish, and fat bouncy prawns, all perfectly cooked as well.
