A new menu has recently been launched by the Parisian styled restaurant, Artisan in Sofitel Mumbai BKC. The newly launched menu has been designed to present gourmet delicacies from France to suit the palate of guests at this stylish venue. After all, over these years, Artisan has been known for its changing avatar with a communal table, Art Deco chandeliers, all-day service, cozy seating for both business meetings and casual rendezvous.
The new menu includes a variety of authentic dishes ranging from savory to sweet. There is a magnifique all-day breakfast menu that includes options like Parisian Eggs Benedict, Orange & Hazelnut French Toast, Muesli Parfait and more. The main course includes Duck Confit, Tenderloin Steak, New Zealand Lamb Chops and similar. Dessert options include delectable treats like Classic Crème Brûlée, Mousse Au Chocolat and similar.
The space is a bistro designed amidst an enchanting Parisian setting and serves exquisite delicacies. As for our meal here, we started off with the Chevre and Grilled Pear Salad which was absolutely spot-on with mesclun, caramalized walnuts, grapes, cherry tomatoes, goat cheese, lime vinaigrette and balsamico. We relished every bit of the delightful salad as freshness took centre stage in every ingredient here.
While we loved the sandwiches and tapas here, the Indienne Whole Wheat Pizza with Chicken tikka, onion, chilli and pepper convinced us that it was the best pizza we had in a while. For mains, we relished the Lamb Shepherd’s Pie with its creamy, delicate mashed potatoes which was balanced beautifully with the deliciously-whipped up lamb. Going to dessert, the Classic Crème Brulee with its caramelized crust was indulgence we would definitely go back for.
The Artisan remains the perfect spot for an informal French meal amidst a careful balance of charming French elegance and Indian culture. An extension of the restaurant’s eclectic ambience is further reflected through this lip-smacking menu. The attentive staff and the delish culinary offerings here remain the heart of this space which is sure to please palates. For a long, long time to come…
