Lunch @ The Press Club

We return to The Press Club for our "christmas work lunch" and we opt for the lunch Kerasma (degustation) with matching wines, beginning with a glass of Ruinart Champagne.

Now we haven't taken a photo of everything had - so head here and here for our other Press Club meals.

oysters

Part of the cold antipasto platter - smoked oyster wrapped in Kataifi pastry on caramelised onions served with shot glasses of greek salad smoothie.

These weren't those tinned smoked oysters, they are smoked in house and have a most delightful aroma. They are to be eaten with the shot of greek salad smoothie - the smoothie wasn't liked by all.

Not photographed - Stuffed zucchini flowers with spanakopita and ouzo mayonnaise and the deep fried Quail (which you can find in this post)

The zucchini flowers were simply fantastic and the quail just perfect.

scallops

Grilled half shell scallops, atherina and baby prawn coleslaw - atherina are those tiny whitebait. Just an excellent combination of flavours and textures.

chicken

Rotisserie Chicken under a crust of pistachio, lemon and breadcrumbs served with roasted garlic potatoes.

It would be impossible to convey how good this chicken was - succulent doesn't do it justice and the topping was something you'd want to make sure you've eaten every last bit of.

Desert, as usual was the Dessert mezedes.
