Unfold an Italian Christmas Gastronomic Adventure at The Pottinger Hong Kong

(Hong Kong, 14 November 2018) Ushering in the Christmas season, guests are enveloped in the magical Christmas atmosphere where every corner at The Pottinger Hong Kong is filled with holiday spirit. Gradini Ristorante E Bar Italian proudly presents a myriad of celebratory dining options, from exquisite menus, coveted brunch to festive cocktails, to enchant your festive season in an Italian-style.

With a wealth of experience and fine craftsmanship on the modern Italian cuisines, Chef Cano, Executive Chef of Gradini, has churned out well-curated menus that blend most visually arresting presentation and fabulous taste for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

On Christmas Eve, Gradini proudly unfolds an enticing culinary adventure starting from the 5-course festive dinner menu. Starting from the appetizer, Scampi with Smoked Cauliflower Puree and Caviar, Chef Cano has sourced three types of prestigious caviar to highlight its intense texture, married with the New Zealand-sourced scampi. This fond marriage always draws praise that you even cannot fancy any more than the freshness of scampi and the rich texture of caviar. Followed by the main course, Slow-baked Lamb Loin never let your down, without any mentioning on the succulent and tenderness of lamb loin wrapped in golden and crispy San Daniele that leaves you wanting more. Christmas feast is not complete without a sweet note! Inspired from the iconic Christmas crystal, Chef Cano has artfully sculpted a photogenic crystal ball, not only to feast your taste with the velvety smooth Apricot Mousse and Crispy Sponge Cake, but also hopefully grab the eyeballs on the stunning presentation.

For health-conscious gourmets, they can opt for the exclusive 3-course menu on Christmas Eve from 6pm – 8pm.

Take your Christmas to new heights with a dazzling brunch on Christmas Day. To extend the sheer joy, you may enjoy the unlimited supply of seasonal appetizers, salads and desserts, with highlights including Pan-seared Foie Gras with Raspberry Balsamic, 36-month San Daniele Ham with Cantaloupe Ham and Boston Lobster with Wild Mushroom Cream Sauce. The brunch also comes with a fine selection of festive mains, notably including Slow-roasted Lamb Chop with Barolo Wine Sauce and Grilled U.S. Prime Sirloin with Forest Mushroom Gravy.

To evoke timeless Italian elegance during holiday season, the 4-course Christmas Day dinner menu features the premium ingredients handpicked by Chef Cano. Sample the jet-fresh Lobster, complemented with Shellfish Jelly and Lemon Olive Bubbles as an appetizer, followed by the sizzling yet tender Roasted Veal Loin with Black Garlic Puree and Barolo Wine Sauce, concluding a delightful dessert featuring Black Sesame and White Chocolate Mousses garnished with Gold Flakes.

If you are craving bubbles to celebrate, look no further than the limited-edition cocktails at Gradini Bar. Ginger Frost (HK$118/glass), with a new twist on the ginger with an addition of Bacardi White Rum and topped with gold flakes, is the perfect drink during Christmas. If you are looking for a more festive drink, relish in the fruity yet sour flavor of Berry Christmas (HK$88/glass), with a harmonious balance with strawberry, raspberry and pineapple juice.
