The menu at Épicure is a captivating story written with every course. Each element, from starters to desserts, is meticulously curated, showcasing the culinary team's impressive technique and imagination. Standouts include a smoked potato mousseline starter, which despite a seemingly simple presentation, hides a wealth of complex flavours. The main course of Scottish salmon cooked at low temperature showcases a perfect balance between the fish and its accompanying fennel and cucumber. This exquisite journey culminates in a dessert of chocolate and chicory ice cream, offering an equilibrium of indulgence and lightness. Equally impressive is the wine list curated by the sommelier, it's an encyclopaedia of vintages from around the world. Although the indulgence comes at a price, it's commensurate with the level of excellence one can expect when booking a table at Épicure.
