The second we walked down the stairs into Cecconi’s, a feeling of romance and intrigue filled the air. As the maitre’d escorted us to our candle-lit table, my eyes danced across the open-concept kitchen which showcased the chefs and kitchen hands at work. It was romantic, it was alluring, and while we could not see exactly what was happening, this intrigued us as it resembled a glimmer of being treated to dinner and a show.
Now, let’s get to the delicious part. We were invited to a tasting of Cecconi’s new spring menu with wine pairing. We were treated to fresh and local produce, tenderly prepared seafood dishes and finished off with the sweet endings of the largest dessert tasting plate you can think of – the wines matched synchronously throughout the evening. We were spoiled tasting this new, fresh, local, organic and environmentally friendly inspired menu.
So, if you’re looking for something that is as pleasing to the eyes as much as it is the palate – then you will need to make a booking and dine at Cecconi’s.
