Thailand: Côte offers an escapade to a dreamy lunch break
BANGKOK, THAILAND – Côte by Mauro Colagreco, Capella Bangkok’s fine dining restaurant embodying the coastal cuisines from the French and Italian Riviera, invites you to experience its new Escapade lunch menu. Available exclusively during lunch service every Wednesday to Sunday from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM, the Escapade menu comprises four courses priced at THB 1,500 per person. And at an additional THB 700 for two glasses and THB 1,150 for three glasses of wine, Côte’s sommelier’s selection will elevate the gastronomic experience (subject to 17% VAT and service charge).
The Escapade menu is imagined and executed by Chef Davide Garavaglia, whose culinary artistry is shaped by years of experience working alongside three Michelin-starred Chef Mauro Colagreco.
Your culinary journey commences with complimentary amuse bouches – such as the chef’s innovative shitake macaron with black pudding terrine filling, a playful take on a British speciality with a complex flavour profile of tart green apple and creamy black pudding.
The journey continues with Cold Ratatouille with fresh sardines and basil vinaigrette. A stew of Taggiasca Olives and confit tomatoes, ratatouille has always been enjoyed as a staple side dish to meat- and fish-centered main courses. Abiding to the restaurant’s philosophy, this Provencal classic has now been transformed into a fresh and light starter wherein the ingredients are allowed to shine.
This is followed by Côte’s signature Slow cooked egg with swiss chard and parmesan cream. Known as “the perfect egg”, the star of this dish is bathed in 64°C water for 45 minutes. The slight nuttiness of the parmesan cream plays up the velvety consistency of the yolk and the swiss chard adds a subtle crunch and vegetal aroma. Served with Mauro Colagreco’s signature ginger-infused bread, it’s a divine twist on the classic eggs and soldiers.
For mains, choose between the “Iberico” pork rack, parsnip puree, and chanterelles mushroom or Monkfish, broccoli and yuzu. Dressed with a sauce from pork jus and banana vinaigrette, the pork is deeply flavourful and succulent, while silky parsnip purée and chanterelles add a tantalizing texture to the dish. Pescetarians will relish the equally flavourful monkfish, a mildly sweet deep-sea delicacy dressed with an umami-rich sauce of anchovies and cream.
The cheese trolley always turns heads when it makes an entrance. At an additional THB 300, let Côte’s tableside cheese selection transport you to an authentic fromagerie with everything from mild-flavoured Italian goat cheeses to French Roqueforts.
Cool down with our sorbet-centric dessert options. The Mascarpone, ‘shiso’ sorbet and strawberry comprises refreshing shiso sorbet and strawberry gelé served atop luscious mascarpone and fresh strawberries. Or opt for the White chocolate and pineapple sorbet, a milky, rich concoction punctuated by the vibrant aroma of fresh pineapple.
