NEWCASTLE, England, May 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Malmaison, a luxury boutique hotel brand in the UK, has announced the launch of a new menu at its brasseries, as well as updated bar and room service menus.
The menu includes an array of starters that feature seasonal offerings, such as the Scotch quail egg and bacon salad with a piccalilli vinaigrette and the 'From the shore' smoked salmon blini, creme fraiche and caviar.
In addition to the new starters, the Malmaison hotel restaurants offer an array of heartily portioned mains, including six different choices from the grill. In keeping with the overall quality of the menu, all of the beef on offer is naturally reared, grass-fed and dry-aged on the bone for a minimum of twenty eight days.
Vegetarians and seafood fans aren't without options either. The new menu also includes a risotto primavera with young fresh vegetables and a hefty sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Seafood options include the yellow fin tuna steak and the salmon fish cake with spinach and parsley sauce.
Emma Benney, Group Marketing Director, said: "We are delighted with the new menu. It's a return to the Malmaison classics, with a few new ones which are already becoming hot favourites. There's a great selection, something for everyone. I personally recommend the Chicken Skewers and of course The Mal burger."
The updated bar menu features a new wine list, headed-up by world renowned sommelier Johnny Walker. Every Malmaison bar also regularly hosts 'Vino Voyages' for wine enthusiasts and occasional wine drinkers alike. These events are presented by guest wine producers and include a large sit-down feast matched with various wines.
Another component of the new bar menu is the cocktail list, which features exotic mixed drinks like the Blackforest Martini as well as classics like the Tom Collins.
Also on offer for Spring 2012 is a new dessert menu, which includes a baked New York cheesecake with blueberries, an array of ice cream sundaes, a Valrhona chocolate tart and a classic vanilla crème brulee. The dessert menu also features an artisan cheese slate with crackers and chutney and an iced fresh fruit plate for those looking for something a bit lighter.
Guests at the brasseries can choose from a range of liqueurs and rich ports to enjoy with their desserts. Also paired well with dessert is the Irish coffee, the French coffee and the Espresso Martini.
The room service menu has also been upgraded to reflect the fresh ingredients of the season. It includes a range of starters, salads and mains, many of which are exclusive only to room service. The menu also offers a selection of sandwiches, the ideal option for guests wanting a light lunch. Catering to guests' late-night cravings, the room service menu also features some 'Midnight Munchies', such as the British classic, beans on toast.
Malmaison offers twelve boutique luxury hotels in the UK, all featuring super slinky rooms and suites, with super-fast broadband. Guests can enjoy visiting the high-octane bars stocked with cocktails and bubbly within the hotels and can dine on the best local produce in the hotel restaurants. In addition to restaurants in London, Malmaison's portfolio also includes Glasgow restaurants and restaurants in Liverpool.
