Spring/Summer 2019

Symphony of Flavours

With a heritage dating back to 1843, combined with a master chef that transcends fine dining into high art, one of the region’s most exclusive restaurants – La Table Krug by Y – has opened in Bahrain.

The 12th restaurant concept to open at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain, a luxury beachfront resort, offers an exclusive 16-person experience by award-winning Executive Chef Yann Bernard Lejard.

With the feeling of dining in a 19th century estate house in the country side of France, La Table Krug by Y will take the most discerning of palates on an epicurean eight-course journey of the senses.

“With every bite, a ‘rough luxury cuisine d’author’ experience unfolds into a symphony of flavours, leaving diners in pure levitation,” says General Manager Bernard de Villèle. “I can’t wait for our guests and our members to experience the region’s most intimate fine dining experience yet.”

Following the dream of Joseph Krug, founder of the house, who believed in outstanding creations as a source of pleasure, Maison Krug offers the very best, regardless of climate variations.

Joining the official Krug Ambassade programme, represented in 27 countries all over the world, La Table Krug by Y at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain will mark the 151st Ambassade, the first-ever in the Middle East and the fourth La Table Krug restaurant concept within the community after Vienna, Mexico City, and Berlin.

A play on words of ‘experiment’ and ‘experience,’ the EXPeRiMENCe 0.1 menu by Executive Chef Lejard unveils a sensual eight-course journey with every bite awakening both the palate and mind. With each dish artfully plated in a Picasso-like form, the menu highlights the most elegant cuisine including signatures like the hamour lemon ginger, light foie gras and Oscietra caviar; local Bahraini vegetables with confit lobster and mango emulsion; and elbow pasta cooked in a risotto style with unctuous coriander, truffle and quail. Desserts will also surprise like the Blueberry Parfait in chocolate crust with coconut coulis and more.

“The menu EXPeRiMENCe will be like a never-ending story with each menu numbered in order to create a unique dining experience for each guest that is never the same. The dishes will change daily based on my inspiration and feelings, and I will ensure a menu that is always daring, playful, unexpected, and most importantly, without limits,” says Lejard.

The table setting will be equally unique. Inspired by the nouveau high fashion concept of ‘rough luxury,’ guests will dine using only the finest of settings with silver tableware by Christofle, plates by Bernardaud Ecume, crystal glasses by Reidel and even the chef’s touch of hand-made local pottery by Bahrain’s own Nada pottery. Ambient music will also elevate the experience with house sounds curated from the Krug Music Experience series culminating in a 360-degree journey of the senses.

La Table Krug by Y is led by Lejard and Directeur de Restaurant and master mixologist Riccardo Fabian Ciancilla. The eight-course EXPeRiMENCe menu starts at BD90 with soft beverages and BD120 with special beverage pairings.
