New Year's Eve Dinner
31 Dec, 6pm to 10.30pm | 5-Course Dinner | $88++ per person
Cross into the new year with the sweet umami of the sea lingering on your palate – perfect for that celebratory flute of champagne. Tablescape offers an evening of seafood indulgence in tribute to the primordial sea of our beginnings.
The meal begins with Oyster – a silky oceanic mouthful from Australia complemented with icy fruitiness of granita made from burnt tomatoes and tangy salty bursts of flavours from capers; and moves quickly to Prawns, where the sweetness of raw red prawns from Sicily are underscored by broad beans and the mild milkiness of burrata.
The meal continues to build to a crescendo with Tagliolini Al Nero, a long thin pasta often mistaken for tagliolini – made from scratch by the kitchen team so that the earthy, briny complexity of squid ink can be fully worked into the dough. Enriched with pumpkin blended so smoothly that it looks like cream and an exquisite squid tartare, this is a dish that will colour your evening in more ways than one.
Crest the wave with Cod, where the tender elegance of Atlantic Black Cod is accompanied with housemade purple potato chips, and a delicately creamy sauce of parsley root, chlorophyll and truffle as both complement and contrast.
The meal ends on a comforting note with Pudding. Bread richly studded with raisins is baked into a pudding, then served smoking hot alongside winter spice ice cream and a rich whisky sauce.
New Year's Day Lunch
1 Jan, 12pm to 2.30pm | Family styled buffet sharing menu | $68++ per person
Spend the daylight hours of these special days bonding with your family over a glorious spread of festive fare at Tablescape, served buffet-style. Chef Armando specially designed the meals as comfort fare, inspired by the golden memories of his own family meals where tables groaned with an abundance of food and drink and family gathered around with cheer and laughter.
The live station might be the most eye-catching; a chef is there, ready to pan-sear foie gras upon request. Feel free to dine on each seared chunk ‘naked’ or with your choice of pistachios, balsamic gastrique, a compote made with Williams pears, or slices of buttery housemade brioche.
Some individuals might be satisfied with foie gras alone but others need a little more variety; for them, the self-serve spread will be a delight – an assortment of carefully selected charcuterie; braised Spanish octopus with tomatoes and capers; tomatoes with mozzarella and pesto; seared tuna loin with mango salsa; and pasta with lamb ragout.
Once your appetite is properly prepped, then it’s time to make a beeline for the jewels of the lunch spread: the carving stations. Choose from a choice of Oven Baked Line Caught Fish from the open waters of the Java Sea and the Indian Ocean; a juicy Roasted Turkey for traditionalists that crave that classic flavour; Prime Ribs with Garlic & Rosemary for that full-bodied beefy chew; and a richly savoury Braised Pork Belly – but why stop at one? Work your way slowly through each station before ending the meal with cheeses from beloved French brand Le Beurre Bordier (of the butter fame) and house-baked desserts.
You can also celebrate joyous festive occasions in the comfort of your home with special delights including Oven Baked Line Caught Fish ($168++), Roasted Turkey ($168++), Prime Ribs with Garlic and Rosemary ($148++/kg), Whole Pork Belly Roulade ($248++) and Christmas Log Cake – Chocolate Mousse with Raspberry Cremeux and Feuilletine Chocolate ($68++).
