The highly acclaimed 55&5th, The Grill, located at the picturesque St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort has introduced its seasonal new menu. The new menu offers guests a wider variety of dishes making dining out in style more affordable.
The tantalising new menu now offers dining aficionados a selection of mouth-watering cuts married with the freshest seasonal produce, providing a truly unmatched dining experience.
We were fortunate to sample a few dishes from this great new menu and we can assure you, you will not be disappointed.
For starters we sampled 55&5th’s signature starter the capelletti priced at AED 80*, small parcels of pasta stuffed with fontina cheese, served with truffle butter sauce and chestnut puree. Fabulous, rich and aromatic, the chestnut puree is divine and adds a variation of texture to the dish. The agnolotti priced at AED 85* also taken from the starter menu is filled with braised short rib, aged goats cheese and chive oil, another spectacular dish.
For the main we are sampling the sterling Angus tenderloin priced at a very reasonable AED 120*, served with a side of spinach Rockefeller and French fries espelette priced at AED 30* per side. Cooked medium well the knife glides through the tenderloin. To taste, the cut is thick and flavoursome.
For dessert we indulge ourselves with the valrhona caraibe chocolate vortex, caramelized ganache, milk chocolate Chantilly, topped with a crunchy chocolate disk and drizzled in hot chocolate sauce. The crunchy chocolate disk dissolves under the warm chocolate sauce to unveil a chocolate mountain of temptation.
“I like to create dishes using a regional Mediterranean flair, inspired by my Maltese upbringing. My focus is to bring harmonious flavours together using the best modern and traditional cooking techniques to deliver a gastronomic journey for our guests,” said Kreaton Cutajar, Chef de Cuisine, 55&5th, The Grill.
