With the exception of the chef’s tasting option, the menu at Menton is prix fixe; but you have your choice of dishes. Four- and seven-course menus are available and include foie gras, swordfish with cauliflower, basil and almond, line-caught cod, duck, lamb and various desserts. The French-inspired cuisine means all dishes are small but filling, thanks in part to the decadent uses of cream sauces, butter and herbs. A seven-course chef’s tasting is a set menu and changes seasonally. On the summer menu, we found Maine crab, Santa Barbara prawns, Rhode Island fluke, foie gras, rabbit, veal and chocolate cake. The purpose of the menu is to allow you to experience a little bit of everything without feeling overindulgent. The prix fixe menu starts at $95 and the excellent chef’s tasting menu begins at $155.
