Le meilleur pour la fin - New Year's Eve at Restaurant Pavillon
Culinary highlights once again set the tone at the Pavillon restaurant. As you think back over the year gone by, let an eleven-course »gourmet symphony« serenade you through the evening – before a magical pyrotechnic ballet shines a heavenly light on the new one.
WINE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM MARC ALMERT
The evening's events get underway with a spot of trend- setting as the pioneering Nyetimber represents England, currently the most dynamic provenance for sparkline wine. The newcomer is nevertheless followed by time-honoured classics: a Swiss Chasselas from Yvorne to go with the intensive salmon taste; the mineral undertones of a German Riesling served with Laurent Eperon's crab dish; a Veltliner Smaragd from FX Pichler in Wachau to accentuate the earthy nuances of Jerusalem artichoke; and a vigorous Brunello di Montalcino to wash down the striking flavour of the quail. On the white side, a Puligny Premier Cru from Bruno Colin accompanies the sole before we switch back to red from South Africa's new flagship estate 4G to go with the main course beef. Shortly before midnight, an almost-forgotten classic comes into play: a Pedro Ximenez from Gutiérrez Colosía, the sweetest of all sherries, to complement the delicious chocolate dessert.
