The signature dinner menu included:


  • Assorted appetizers: salad in egg, pink radish with langoustines, mini eclair with salmon, edible menu.

  • Seasonal pumpkin soup with persimmon and smoked red caviar: fresh pumpkin soup with delicately crispy persimmon slices and bursting caviar balls



  • Tar-tare dolma: the idea of ​​the dish came from the chef's childhood - raw meet instead of cooked under a crispy dried grape leaf, the dish became the discovery of the evening

  • Lazy dumplings with crab - mini dumplings that perfectly combine cottage cheese and crab meat, with Black Sea shrimp bisque sauce

  • Pike perch with whey foam and dried tuna

  • Wild venison with garlic ice cream

  • Lemon duck and assorted mini-desserts (among the mini-desserts, the smoked pear tartlets definetely attracted attention).
