Beginning in the new year, legendary chef Pierre Gagnaire will introduce the new Le Grand Petit Déjeuner menu at Pierre in Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong.
Held every Sunday, this will be the first time Chef Gagnaire will serve brunch at any of his restaurants worldwide.
The new menu will mix traditional French Sunday lunch and a Parisian breakfast “using chef’s creativity and combining it with the most refined seasonal products found in and around France.”
Guests will begin the gastronomic journey with 10 starters to share, including Japan style oysters served in a shell socket, tartlet of caviar, and seaweed tartare and smoked mackerel. Chef Gagnaire’s signature egg dishes will be featured including a choice between poached egg, foie gras velouté and fondue of spinach, flat Vietnamese omelette, or nested quail egg with tomato jam.
For the main course, guests will have five choices including grilled rib eye with buckwheat galette and rocket, cocotte of scallops with razor clams and salsify, and salted cod brandade with cucumber. To complete the journey, guests can choose from over 13 desserts laid out on Pierre restaurant’s centrepiece dining table including Paris-Brest éclair; pear poached in osmanthus; coconut milk bavaroise with tapioca and redcurrant jelly, and much more. Signature beverages will also be a highlight in the brunch menu.
