Dubai restaurant offers ‘flexible’ menu
Dubai, October 4, 2010
Conservatory Restaurant, at Dubai’s Southern Sun Al Manzil Hotel, has launched a new menu that offers freedom and flexibility for the diner.
While the restaurant’s previous menu featured a combination of static buffet and a la carte, the new a la carte menu, available for lunch and dinner, incorporates several classic and original dishes and “recommended” toppings, fillings, and ingredient combinations, but the ultimate choice is left entirely up to the diner, a statement said.
“The new menu concept focuses on enhancing guest-chef interaction,” says Chef Geoff Haviland, Complex executive chef, Southern Sun Al Manzil and Qamardeen Hotels.
“The menu acts as a guide, and diners looking for something special have the opportunity to interact with the chefs present on the floor, who can work with them to come up with personalised versions of dishes featured on the menu, or something completely new.”
“The new menu concept also features live cooking stations and a live salad bar, where guests can order their meals exactly how they like them,” he added.
And while the option of customization is celebrated throughout, with plenty of opportunity to mix-and-match favourite ingredients, guests can still order dishes straight off the menu, the statement said.
“The success of the new menu concept rides on our confidence in the trained palates of our chefs and their familiarity with ingredients and flavour combinations, as well as the warm intimacy and trust that comes from open guest-chef interaction,” said Chef Geoff.
“This menu is designed to highlight the wonderful and passionate personalities of our culinary and service stars through greater verbal interactions with our diners,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
