Within the confines of the super-chic Tcharassi Hotel, Vera’s white-on-white decor and flamboyant style set the tone for a sublime dining experience. Vera’s lauded Chef Daniel Castaño crafts a coastal Italian menu which, rather than being loaded with adjectives, allows the distinct flavors of each ingredient to do the talking. Antipasti, carpaccio, salumi, and formaggio form a tantalizing prelude to the menu’s star dishes: risotto alla pescatore (seafood risotto), fettuccini maiale (pork belly), a silky beef fillet with cherry and rosemary, and lamb with pumpkin and dates. Traditional Italian desserts are given a tropical spin with a refreshing limoncello sorbet with pepperoncino and honey, and a creamy panna cotta with wild berries.
