Nicholini’s – Champagne Brunch at Conrad Hotel

Nicholini’s was once considered as one of the best Italian restaurant in town. Situated at Level 8 of the Conrad Hotel, the communal room features shades of gold and beige, semi-circular tables, high and floor-to-ceiling window overseeing the Admiralty district view.

On the day of our visit, Nicholini’s is serving a Saturday weekend brunch that includes free-flow beverages, such as Perrier-jouet grand brut champagne, wines and draught beers. A selection of Italian appetizers are served at the buffet table; there are Italian cow’s milk cheese, some with intense flavor whereas some is moderately widespread with bluish marbling; sheep’s milk soft cheese and a French soft cheese. Some favourites are the beef carpaccio, slow cooked salmon, vine tomato & buffalo mozzarella cheese, the roasted suckling pig and the Cotechino with lentil stew.

Each table includes a seafood platter, and each person can get a pasta or main dish.
The seared cod fish is simply served with vegetables, the skin is beautifully pan seared and topped with shaves of black truffle. The Guinea fowl is gorgeously dished and wrapped with bacon, a little crunchy, perfectly tasty and has a flavor close to chicken.
We also got a honey-glazed rack of lamb and a lobster angel hair pasta cooked in tomato sauce.

Finally, the dessert platter has a combination of tiramisu, pecan pie, chocolate tart and carrot cake. But surprisingly, I am much impressed by the vanilla ice cream that comes at last.
