Dine like royalty at this concept dinner with matched wines
Voyage from East to West in an eight-course matched degustation dinner at David's Restaurant. The menu is designed by award-winning chefs Matteo Toffano (ex-Grossi Florentino) and Patrick Dang (David's consultant chef), and is inspired by popular dishes historically found on the ancient trade network of the Silk Road. For $160 per person, you will be treated to four canapés, including a David's classic – the drunken granita St Helen's oysters with pickled goji berries. The mains include David's Empire's duck tasting (pictured) which features a 'Jiang Ya' duck with mandarin and fennel, pressed duck terrine with house pickles and green plum, a taro and five-spiced duck croquette with tofu mayonnaise and tea-smoked duck served with sesame sauce and green soy bean. Matched wines included.
