Yesterday I attended the launch of the Cultural Menu at the Conservatorium hotel. They now offer a 3 course menu which is available from 17.30 to 19.30. Early enough so it gives you the time to have a delightful meal before you attend a concert, theater show or performance. This way you can enjoy a complete night out. For the launch, a few members of the cast of the musical PIPPIN gave a short performance at the lobby of the hotel. It was lovely to get a glimpse of the musical. Pippin has won 4 Tony awards and it is exclusively at the Carré till the 10th of April.
The menu was crafted by chef Schilo van Coevorden. You are welcomed with a glass of Cava and the menu consists of a beautifully plated terrine of smoked salmon with cucumber, dill, watercress and a poached egg. It was followed by a very tender poached corn-fed chicken with Brussels sprouts, ratatouille, celeriac, garlic and poultry gravy. And finally a Pavlova filled with Advocaat ice cream and poached pear. A delicious and quite filling meal.
The Cultural Menu is available at the Brasserie and it costs €42 per person.
