I checked out the Radisson Blu Le Vendome. Chilled, laid back and not a bad option for the CHRISTMAS SPECIAL season. This is what you can expect.
Naughty or nice? Buffet or set menu? These are just some of the decisions to be made around the festive season, especially when it comes to Christmas eats. Now the latter has been answered by the luxury Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel in Sea Point – you can have both.
Announcing a hotel first, the Radisson Le Vendome is debuting a duo of exceptional Christmas menus – a buffet and a six-course lunch – at both of their dining destinations, the #add Restaurant & Pool (Buffet lunch) and La Mer Restaurant & Grill (Six-course lunch)
Created exclusively for Christmas day dining by Executive Chef, Chad Inder, the menus capture the spirit of the festive season with guests having a choice of a perfectly prepared and sumptuous buffet, featuring a host of holiday favorites or, a fine, six course fine dining experience.
The La Mer Restaurant & Grill offers a stellar six course selection of mouth-watering meals that are sure to surprise and delight diners. Take an amuse bouche of exotic mushrooms & walnut gnocchi with parmesan and truffle oil, for example, followed by an asparagus, egg, and leek salad, adorned with caper berries and pea tendrils. Tomato soup, foie gras, and a cherry sorbet complete the pre main selection. The main course is a Cherry & Sherry peppered fillet with radish puree, potato parmesan fondant, garden vegetables while an apple crumble completes the festive occasion.
The #add Restaurant & Pool also has something special to offer with a festive-themed buffet menu. Starters on offer include Asparagus and Asian Greens Salad with Quail Eggs and Tamarind Dressing, Fresh Baby Spinach and Gruyere Quiche, and Fish Ceviche to name but a few. Traditional mains such as turkey and gammon are also on offer while mince pies, malva and chocolate pudding will satisfy any sweet tooth.
The Christmas set menu costs R750 pp while the buffet costs R650 and bookings may be made through the hotel.Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel
