European grill menu at Graze

Graze, the fine dining restaurant at Vivanta by Taj, MG Road, Bangalore, recently introduced a new menu  that features some authentic European fare. I tasted some of their signature dishes. Here's a photo tour...

The highlight of the new menu are grilled dishes prepared using modern European techniques. I was looking forward to experience the subtleties that European style of cooking bring to the table...

It is a pleasure to see such an elegant interior with lots of space between tables...

Breads are nice to munch while waiting for the real food. The cornbread sticks were tasty...

I loved the Mushroom Cappuccino soup with milk foam, Porcini dust and truffle oil. The mild coffee flavor was spot on. I added some freshly ground black pepper that gave it an extra zing...

The seafood platter comprised of King Prawns, Scallop, Squids, Soft shell crab and John Dory...

Pancetta wrapped prawns were amazing. The citrus emulsion, grilled asparagus and a drizzle of Sauce Vierge made it a great starter...

The Little James' Basket Press is an inexpensive french wine from Chateau de Saint Cosme, Rhone...

It is a medium bodied wine with pleasant finish which pairs really well with barbecue...

Duck Breast with braised cabbage, pumpkin mash and fig. A little orange can work wonders with duck breast. The Cointreau sauce makes the flavors perfectly balanced and gives an aromatic note to the duck...

Lamb chops on a bed of Catalan spinach, Kaffir lime and Vanilla jus. I should give a special mention to the fondant potato which was delicious and which slightly dominated the yummy lamb...

My favorite of the day was John Dory. For the uninitiated, John Dory is a sea fish found in European waters. John Dory was served with Sweet Potato cake, lemongrass martini veloute sauce and a haricot bundle of baby corn, carrot and french bean...

53.8% Cocoa had Callebaut cream, vin brule peach and tamarind hazelnut ice cream. The uniqueness of this dessert is indescribable...

I think the Savoiardi fingers make a Tiramisu better by its chew and the Espresso ice cream is a perfect dessert to end a great dinner...

Overall a great experience. I think the subtle European flavors have left a memorable taste on my palate...
