After undergoing a refresh, the Palace at the Lost City’s Plume Restaurant’s new summer menu showcases seasonal flavours and a renewed focus on fine dining.

“Our new menu is inspired by summer, with fresh and uplifting flavours that complement the season. At Plume, dining is luxurious, intimate and an unhurried experience. The three-course menu features just a few really spectacular dishes to keep meal choices uncomplicated,” says Caron van Rooyen, The Palace Hotel Manager.

The three-course menu kicks off with an amuse bouche such as duck liver parfait, charred sparta Angus beef and leek, and ceviche oyster. For starters, dishes include Irish scallops with sweet corn; sparta Angus beef tartare, and quail and mushroom velouté.

Main dishes are duck with carrots, leek, bean and an invigorating plum jus, Angus beef wellington with summer vegetables and port jus, angelfish with butternut, peas and lime, and summer vegetable and truffle lasagne. Finishing off the meal, the dessert menu features deconstructed lemon meringue; passion fruit cheese cake with orange sorbet, and a rich triple chocolate ganache.
