I revisited Society Restaurant recently for dinner to taste some of Executive Chef Alfred Contiga‘s new dishes! Most of these dishes were new and about to be added to their Winter menu!
Smoked Salmon Twinkie
Beef Short Rib Ravioli with chutney, grapes, peas and carrots
Meat Lovers Pizza
Cajun Salmon on a bed of cauliflower purée with lobster
Flaming Vanilla Creme Brulee
Chef Alfred Contiga invited me in and I had my friend Gerry join me, for most of the dishes we had our own serving and shared the pizza.
Each dish was well presented and all were good. I have dined at Society Restaurant on a few occasions previously, see one of my previous visits here. The Beef Short Rib Ravioli with chutney, grapes, peas and carrots was a standout dish for both of us; the Smoked Salmon Twinkie surprised me as it was filled with delicious salmon making this a fun tasty appetizer. Flaming Vanilla Creme Brulee arrived to the table and chef then torched it in front of us and in 15 seconds the brulee was finished – voila!
