2019 has been immense for Cottonopolis and the team. With the introduction of their eagerly anticipated new Principles cocktail menu (inspired by the principles of Japanese Aesthetics) and their nomination for the Imbibe’s Drinks List of the Year, we’ve been expecting wonderful things from the team this Christmas, and they haven’t disappointed!
“Creating our Christmas Menu is something which we really enjoy developing together at the end of the year. Not only does it allow us to give a nod of thanks to the drinks brands that have supported us over the last twelve months, but it gives us the chance to celebrate those richer, heavier flavour notes that Christmas embodies.” – Gethin Jones, Head Bartender at Cottonopolis.
The team have been working hard on their Christmas offerings, from cocktails through to their stunning set menus, here’s what you can expect this festive season…
For £37pp, enjoy the Kurisumasu 3-Course Set Menu and delight in the taste of Japan with dishes such as Seared Salmon Tataki (with grilled winter greens and kimchi mayo) and Wagyu Beef Yorkie Taco (with wasabi mayo and broccoli lime salsa) to start.
If traditional is your thing, enjoy the Roasted Turkey Ballotine for your main, served with sweet potato gratin, glazed beans, herb stuffing and a special cranberry tonkatsu gravy. Or you could opt for the delicious Karaage Fried Chicken Supreme with spring onion mash, roasted sweetcorn, ponzu glazed sprouts and a Sancho peppercorn sauce.
Desserts include Yuzu and Rose Panna Cotta (with gingerbread crumb and yuzu curd) and Miso Caramel Chocolate Brownie served with a pear, sage and vanilla ice cream.
The team are also offering a stunning Canape and Walk and Fork menu this month. See the full offering below!
