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, with a special inaugural offer of HKD688 +10% per person, will be the ideal mix of a traditional French Sunday lunch and a Parisian breakfast revisited using the 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 decadent 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. In addition to a wide range of curated teas, including Masala Chai tea, coffees, and fresh juices on free-flow, Chef Gagnaire created a new black hot chocolate with juniper and white hot chocolate with chestnut for guests with a sweet tooth.
To complement the dishes, champagne chosen by Pierre’s resident sommelier will be served exclusively from a hand blown glass decanter made by the renowned artisan studio Fluïd from Belle Ile en Mer in Brittany, France.
With panoramic views of Victoria Harbour from Pierre, Le Grand Petit Déjeuner is the most enchanting and delicious way to spend Sundays in Hong Kong. The brunch is available from 11 am every Sunday beginning 15 January 2017.
