(Closed) Pontini at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel Introduces New Italian Semi Buffet Lunch
Italian restaurant Pontini at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel has introduced a new Italian semi-buffet lunch, featuring seafood on ice, foie gras station, pizza station, cheese room, lavish array of antipasti, pastas, main courses and a delightful ensemble of desserts.
The Italian specialties are executed skilfully using the finest ingredients from Italy. For a start, pique your palate with marinated octopus salad, potatoes, green beans and lemon zest, smoked marlin carpaccio with baby spinach, black olives and small capers, black truffle frittata and home-cured Scottish salmon platter, raw green asparagus salad and “Taggiasca” black olives. A must have at any buffet has to be the cold seafood, especially the oysters.
Walk into the revamped cheese room which housed an assortment of hard and soft artisanal Italian cheese selection accompanied with dried fruits, chutney, nuts, jam and honey. Highlights include Burrata, Mozzarella, Taleggio, Fontina, Gorgonzola, Asiago, Black Truffle Pecorino, Parmesan, Castelmagno DOP and more.
Another new introduction is the live foie gras station where the chef prepares pan-seared foie gras à la minute at the live station. Pair unlimited foie gras with fruit chutney, pan-brioche, white truffle honey and aged balsamic vinegar.
Pasta lovers can create their pasta by selecting their choice of pasta (potato dumpling gnocchi, orecchiette, tagliatelle, ricotta and spinach ravioli) with their choice of condiments and sauces such as roasted Italian sausage, wild mushrooms and chestnut, black truffle “Roman” carbonara sauce, sautéed fresh prawns, zucchini and lemon zest, fresh tomato, black mussels, olives and chilli pesto and premium cheese fondue, radicchio and walnut.
Diners can also design their own pizza and calzone (stuffed pizza) with their choice of toppings including ham, bacon, olives, mushrooms and more. The pizzas are freshly made by the team of chefs at the live pizza station. You can choose from Pancetta, Shredded Chicken, Salami and Smoked Salmon for the tomato and mozzarella cheese base pizza and another 3 choices of topping from a selection of 11 different ingredients.
If the free flow pizza and pasta is still not enough, there is still more to offer at Pontini with a choice of mains out of 5 selections. My favourite is the Roasted Spring Chicken done at the Live Rotisserie Corner. The live spring chicken is roasted to perfection and served with assorted grilled vegetables, condiments and Chianti red wine jus.
Delve into the tantalising flavours of Tuscany style mixed seafood pot or savour the succulent roasted lamb rack. There are also Oven Baked Barramundi Fillet and Braised Short Ribs. The mains are so so good, I wish I can have more! I love the menu of à la carte dishes that can freshly prepared upon order.
For a perfect finale, indulge in freshly brewed coffee or tea and take your pick from the tempting assortment of desserts such as stracciatella and ricotta cannoli made freshly at the live station, the signature tiramisu, espresso crème brûlée, almond and pear tart, ricotta cheese pie, cornmeal cake, traditional Tuscany “panforte”, vanilla panna cotta with wild berries sauce and more.
Pontini is the perfect location for a lazy afternoon lunch with friends or family. The Italian Buffet is priced at $58++ per person. It is only available on Saturday and public holidays from 12pm to 3pm (closed on Sundays).
