The Grove x 2



The Grove restaurant had, for a limited time, a 'Create your own 5 course experience'. Sarah and I went twice - because a) delicious value, and b) we wanted to try the things on the menu we had missed the first time. However, for our second time there was a whole new menu to choose from!

Our first outing was right around my birthday (July). Full menu:



We had:
1. Terrine of goose and pheasant w pickles, brioche



2. Grilled kingfish w broth of smoked kahawai, malt vinegar mussels



3. Wild shot red deer roasted in douglas fir, ash basked parsnip w preserved blackberries



4. Glazed wagyu short-rib w butternut, peas, pancetta



5. Apple and lemon tart fine w vanilla ice-cream


And then a lovely surprise treat for me, as the waitress saw it was my birthday (non-discrete ripping open of presents!)




Bliss!! So, we had to go back again...


The next menu:



We had:
1. Terrine of duck, poussin & hare, haricot vert & shallot chutney



2. New Zealand yellow fin tuna w coconut, cucumber & avocado



3. Line-caught fish w champagne veloute, salt baked turnips & toasted macadamias



4. Glazed wagu beef cheek w wakame, agria mousseline, savoy cabbage



5. Souffle a la moment with home-made ice-cream
