Restaurant Serenade Restaurant Review: The dining experience at Serenade includes fresh flowers in abundance and the sounds of pleasant conversation filling the rooms. In the cold months, the entryway provides a warming welcome with its roaring fire. It is almost impossible to choose poorly here, every dish is carefully thought out and prepared, but notable is the rack of lamb that has seasonal variations. One night it might be offered with a garlicky infusion, adrift in a sea of mint purée; on another night, with Basque piperade, herb crouton and curry. Fish, too, are beautifully handled. Consider the seared sea bass with lobster-tomato risotto, baby leeks and marinated vegetables. Try the pumpkin soup---a creamless purée with apples, chestnuts and chives---or the ginger prawn salad made with grilled, Asian calamari, avocado, wasabi and black sesame seeds The wine list has been assembled from the world’s major wine producing areas but is also notable for its large selection of wines by the glass as well as half bottle offerings. Service, especially wine service, is polished yet friendly.
