JW Marriott Hotel Seoul
Through Sept. 30: The Margaux Grill at JW Marriott Hotel Seoul greets the summer holiday season with the Mediterranean Summer promotion, a menu of Mediterranean-style seafood and grilled dishes served in a stunning natural setting, fresh breezes and inspiring city views of the restaurant’s seventh-floor garden.
The six-course promotion menu begins with an amuse-bouche of watermelon gazpacho, a Spanish-style cold soup of watermelon, tomato, bell peppers and olive oil, followed by a Greek salad of succulent prawns, crab, abalone and other fresh Mediterranean seafood dressed in olive oil, and a chicken velouté soup made with richly aromatic chicken stock. An entrée course of grilled blackthroat seaperch, sourced directly from Jeju Island, carefully grilled in a Spanish Josper charcoal oven, and served with Spanish-style tomato sauce, follows. The main course brings a choice of tenderloin or sirloin of premium Korean Woorungchan Hanwoo beef, cooked to perfection in a Josper charcoal oven, while a dessert of two house-made gelati delivers a refreshing final note to the perfect summer dining experience.
The Mediterranean Summer promotion is hosted in JW Marriott Hotel Seoul’s seventh-floor garden, a venue crafted by Olson Kundig, the international architects’ studio renowned for its unique designs incorporating nature. Renowned as an exotic destination offering natural escapes in the heart of the city, the garden features grass, herbs and trees to evoke the ambiance of a European secret garden, creating the perfect setting for a gourmet Mediterranean summer’s journey.
The Margaux Grill’s Mediterranean Summer promotion menu is served at dinner times only and is priced at 200,000 won ($153) including tax and service charges.
