Plancha Specials

The plancha is a highly polished, mirror-like griddle heated to a precise temperature for searing fish and shellfish. Using the smallest amount of olive oil, this method for cooking seafood locks in flavor, freshness, and moisture, making it the perfect healthy-cooking technique.

Served with a selection of the chef's signature creations: black olive tapenade, salsa verde, and piperade. Each plancha special is served with your choice of side (sides also available à la carte).
