It has been a year of the unexpected. Your plans for seeing out 2020 however, shouldn’t be left to the fates to decide. Courtesy of Marini’s on 57, you can celebrate Christmas and see the year out in style perched over the twinkling lights of the city.
Specially curated holiday menus serves up authentic Italian cuisine with fresh and fine ingredients; in true Marini’s style, truffles are in season and the Christmas menu does not shy away from being generous with the ingredient. A sweet Hokkaido scallop on parsnip puree, topped with black truffle shavings and caviar for appetizer is a light and easy start to the menu that saves you space to indulge later for mains. Opt for either a coral trout with cauliflower, leek gratin and shaved black truffles or the lamb rack and lamb tartlet with porcini mushrooms with truffle Taleggio sauce that promises to satisfy your cravings for a good Christmastime roast. For dessert, refresh your palette with the orange and basil sorbet before topping the night off with the luxurious Ivoire Valrhona chocolate crémeux with raspberry sorbet and pistachio.
For the final sunset of 2020, start your night early with a window seat that will carry you through to the main festivities later on in the evening at the stroke of midnight. Kick-off the eight-course meal with the appetizer trio comprising Wagyu bresaola, a tuna tartlet, and the whimsical but quite delightful potato and mushroom ‘Cappuccino’. Your taste buds will be further tantalized with the colourful lobster carpaccio and caviar, and a Wagyu beef agnolotti with porcini mushrooms and black truffle shavings.
The mains promise a medley of interesting flavours and we recommend the subtler Carnaroli risotto with white truffles from Alba followed by Marble Score 9 Wagyu tenderloin. Finally, say goodbye to 2020 with two decadent sweet treats which include the hazelnut Crémeux and sponge cake with vanilla gelato, truffle essence, truffle slices and gold dust. Pair with Marini’s on 57 extensive selection of wines or order cocktails from the award-winning Marini’s on 57 Bar.
