Oh Yes, I love to fine dine at five star restaurants. Who doesn’t ? Last Saturday I went to The Trident- BKC for Lunch. I was there to try out #prestolunches, a three course Italian meal at Botticino, their Sleek contemporary dining room serving traditional Italian cuisine .
A warm and inviting reception, a huge spacious interior, elegant and clean ambience, neat and tidy tables, charming and courteous staff made the Botticino the perfect place to fine dine for me that afternoon.
The Presto Lunches menu at Botticino is a three course elaborate spread with a number of options to pick from for Rs. 990/- plus tax. You can call and book a table from Monday-Saturday for lunch.
Items on the Menu.
Coming to the food we started with the appetizers. I tried the highly recommended Beetroot Tartare with orange spheres and beetroot macaroons. A visual treat served up with sweet flavours, refreshing and enjoyable to my palate.
My companion for the afternoon Shimareet Bhasin, Communications Manager at the Trident seemed to be enjoying her Black pepper chicken served up with mash and grape reduction.
For Mains I wanted to try the Red Snapper. This Poached Red Snapper was such a healthy option for main course. It was cooked in a glass jar with exotic vegetables, orange juice, and prawn stock. Served on a bed of potato mash mixed with olives and basil. This simple dish had no spices yet full of flavours.
Shimareet had the Angel Hair shrimp pasta with olive oil, garlic and parsley. I enjoyed seeing her slurping it up with delight.
The meal ended on a sweet note with us both indulging in chocolate.
However right from the time we entered to the end I would only say one thing that Presto Lunches over exceeded my expectation.
