This dining room, which is housed inside a historic building, has a refined aura, as seen by the large Murano chandelier, the fashionable guests, and everything else in the space. It’s no surprise that this is the destination of choice for rich visitors and residents to commemorate their important events. In fact, service is impeccable from the moment the champagne cart comes at your table until you finish the last taste of the guéridon’s mignardises. Keeping up with the trend, the magnificent room is as appealing as ever, providing extra space for intimate events.
Quince used to be known for its traditional cuisine, but Chef Michael Tusk’s menu is becoming more modern as time goes on. To illustrate, a magnificent glass vase filled with golden osetra caviar is placed on top of a delicate oyster panna cotta for a delectably high-brow appetizer. Afterwards, a special dish of tortellini, which when filled with pork, parmesan, and tossed in beurre blanc, becomes the epitome of delicacy, may be enjoyed. Veal stuffed with potato purée, quince, and chestnut makes for a particularly delicious entrée when coated in vegetable crumbs and served with a side of vegetables.
It goes without saying that mignardise cart is a sight to see, thanks to the array of delectable goodies on offer, such as huckleberry jam-filled kouign amann, macarons, and chocolate.
