Trattoria 51 to celebrate Italian origin of Valentine’s Day
As a day that recognises the Roman saint associated with love and devotion, the Old Hall Street restaurant is preparing a four-course Valentine’s feast.
Trattoria 51 is set to take Valentine’s Day back to its true roots.
To accompany the dishes served exclusively on Saturday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 14, a Filtro D’Amore (Love Potion) cocktail will be available, combining prosecco, rum and strawberry puree.
General manager and co-owner of Trattoria 51, Toni Karemanaj, said: “We want couples to feel as though they have been whisked away to Italy when they dine with us, which is why we have created a menu that combines nostalgic Italian flavours with a refreshing contemporary twist.”
To begin their meal, guests can order an amuse bouche selection to share, followed by starter options including king scallops wrapped in speck ham & white onion puree with a chorizo crumb; parma ham asparagus served with a poached egg, pancetta & garden pea veloute sauce and garlic mushroom & dolcelatte bruschetta.
Main courses include homemade smoked salmon & king prawns ravioli with a mascarpone & dill sauce; fillet of beef wellington, wild mushroom & pate wrapped in puff pastry with fondant potato, baby broccoli & a light gravy jus and vegetable risotto with asparagus & grilled goat cheese.
For dessert is a sharing platter, which combines a varied assortment of indulgent bite-sized homemade desserts.
Toni added: “Whether couples prefer to mark the occasion on the day or make a weekend of it, we hope to provide them with the perfect location to relax and unwind, while spending quality time with one another. Here’s to a Valentine’s to remember!”
The four-course Valentine’s menu is available on Saturday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 14 and is priced at £29.95 per person. The Filtro D’Amore cocktail is priced at £5.
