Dinner @ Vue de Monde

As usual we begin the night with a glass of Jacquesson champagne.

Amuse Bouche
Moules Frites

A playful way to begin - a twist on traditional Moules Frites (mussels and fries). Plump and succulent warm mussels coated with finely cut fries

Vitello Tonnato
Thyme skewers of sliced Veal topped with Sterling Caviar and deep fried tuna mayonnaise

Tuna mayonnaise is crumbed and deep fried creating a package of contrasts - crisp and crunchy outside, runny inside. The caviar is quite a large sized black egg - just like the mayonnaise cubes burst in your mouth so too does the caviar. The veal is cooked pink and tender.
