Special Champagne Menu Debuts at Ancora

Darpan News Desk, 02 Aug, 2017
  • Special Champagne Menu Debuts at Ancora
Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio, one of Vancouver's top seafood restaurants and home to a coveted seaside patio, is making the most of the summer season with a specially curated Champagne menu exclusively available through August. 
 
Ancora's acclaimed sommelier team, led by General Manager & Wine Director Andrea Vescovi and Maître D' & Sommelier Kyle Gartlan-Close, have tasted their way through Champagnes from around the world and handpicked their top choices ranging from best value to most splurge-worthy. The menu is designed to appeal to a variety of taste preferences with selections like Ruinart R, a robust and biscuity brut made of Chardonnay grapes; J-M Sélèque Solesscence, a smooth brut rosé with notes of red field berries and strawberries; varied styles by renowned vintage Champagne house Dom Pérignon; and more. Champagnes are available by the glass and bottle, though indecisive guests can opt for a tasting flight of one rosé and two bruts ($49). 
 
Each Champagne pairs perfectly with Ancora's award-winning Peruvian-Japanese menu, crafted by Executive Chef Ricardo Valverde in collaboration with Raw Food Chef Yoshihiro Tabo. Summer favourites include light, flavourful plates like ceviche with mussels, scallops, squid, seaweed and yam; beef yukke (Korean-style beef tartare) accompanied by Asian pear, egg yolk and sesame; and freshly caught sashimi. Guests seeking an extra indulgence can pair their Champagne with Ancora's caviar service - a crisp, dry variety is the perfect complement to caviar's salty, briny flavour. 
 
"Champagne is the essential wine, not only for special events but for any occasion," said Vescovi. "We're very excited to bring some of our favourite bottles to our guests, and give them the opportunity to sample a variety of excellent styles."
 
Ancora's spacious patio is the perfect choice for soaking in the sunshine with a glass of Champagne along with stunning views of False Creek. To book a reservation, visit ancoradining.com.
