New Year's Eve Menus
By Calum Donoghue, 10 December 2014
Quattro Passi, Dover Street
Fresh from his two-Michelin starred Quattro Passi Nerano on the Amalfi Coast, Antonio Mellino's first restaurant in the UK is celebrating the count down to the New Year in true Italian style. An indulgent seven-course menu walks diners through an exquisite showcase of Campania flavours, enjoyed on Mayfair's Dover Street.
Upon arrival guests will enjoy a glass of Champagne, before gorging on authentic dishes including poached quail egg and potato veloutée with white truffle, baked sea bream, beef Wellington and to end a light sponge roll, with Chantilly cream and raspberry coulis.
Like all good New Year's Eve celebrations, after dinner the party continues downstairs in the Private Lounge, complete with full bar, piano and area to dance into the early hours...
