A cherry wood interior makes the dining room a warm setting for an intimate or lively occasion with French inspired Mediterranean signature dishes cooked to perfection in the open kitchen. An elegant wine room is available for private functions.
Cioppino’s Mediterranean Grill is pleased to give you a fresh perspective on Mediterranean cooking with Executive Chef and restaurateur/owner Giuseppe Posteraro, known to his many friends as “Pino”.
Fresh as his new style of Italian cooking, he’ll surprise and refresh your taste buds with “Cucina Naturale” which is his forte. Basically, a classical style of cooking, “Cucina Naturale” emphasizes the use of fresh ingredients, especially vegetables. Its lightness of taste is derived from minimizing animal fats and creams and using low cholesterol olive oils instead. “I respect the nature of ingredients, hence I try to bring out the natural taste of ingredients,” says Pino, who uses vegetable puree and a reduction from seafood stocks, to make sauces without flour.
To further lighten the taste of each dish, his sauces are kept in the fridge overnight to eliminate the fat layer formed on top. Pino believes in balance in all dishes, with flavours that are not too overpowering.
The dinner menu reflects the seasonal availability of fish, game, fruits and vegetables.
So when you visit Cioppino’s Mediterranean Grill, look out for a new, “naturale” experience.
