The Alcott Lane Cove has released a new menu. In the Cove and some friends went along to play Trivia and sample the new menu. The new menu was given the thumbs up, and we came fourth in the Trivia (room for improvement).
Head Chef Simon Flanders designed the new menu. Simon trained in London in some of the best Five Star Star Hotels and Harvey Nichols 5th Floor. He moved to Sydney and worked with Guillaume Brahimi at Quay, The Tattersalls Club, Vault Restaurant, The Ivy, and Executive Chef at RACA on Macquarie Street.
The New Menu
Simon’s inspiration for the new menu is home-style, fresh cooking with local seasonal ingredients in a Modern Australian/European Style. You can view the new menu here.
ITC tried out the Slow Roasted Pork Belly with pancetta, morcilla, chargrilled brussel sprouts, Kipfler potatoes and one of the best butternut purees I have ever tasted.
One of the most popular dishes on the new menu is the Grilled Lamb Gyros (which is a great alternative to hamburgers). It’s served on grilled flatbread, with harissa minted yoghurt, fattoush salad and tempura cauliflower.
Simon told us the Chefs are really enjoying cooking the Rangers Valley Black Angus Flank, which is served with celeriac puree, broccolini, parmesan and crispy onions.
Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten-Free Options
There is something on the menu to suit all dietary requirements. If you’re vegetarian, you can choose the Caralamised Red Onion, Leek, Ricotta, Goat’s Cheese and Asparagus Puff Pastry Tart (it’s a huge serving) or perhaps the Beetroot and Goats Curd Risotto. One of ITC’s personal favourites, the Tempura Cauliflower, is still on the menu. If your after gluten-free options, you can choose dishes such as the Huon Hot Smoked Salmon Salad, Chermoula Spiced Pumpkin, or the Rangers Valley Black Angus Rump.
Leave Room for Dessert or Cheese
ITC always saves room for the Selection of Local Artisan Cheeses. The selected cheeses melt in your mouth. Simon told ITC his preference is to purchase Australian cheese that is not readily available in supermarkets. They are currently serving three kinds of Australian handmade cheese – Monte Rosso, Bay of Fires Cheddar, Charltons Choice Blue.
Got a sweet tooth? You can choose either the Tonka Bean Creme Caramel and Raisin Dessert or perhaps the Frozen Peanut Butter Parfait.
