- A “7 salt bar” showcases the effects of salinity on Champagne through texture and taste in a series of gourmet appetizers including dim sum with pork extract, Fregola Sarda with shellfish, oyster with cucumber extract and more.
- The Cookooning Cellar is the restaurant’s main dining room connected to an open Molteni kitchen where pike terrine brioche with mushroom extract and butter with lobster coral is prepared to be served with Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage Collection 1985 – a fantastic magnum bottling from the house’s expansive cellar.
