Chaîne des Rôtisseurs’ Christmas Dinner in Lisbon is on Friday at the Panorama Restaurant at Sheraton.
Thomas gets loads of press releases, invitations, digital flyers and junk… most of it things that are either irrelevant, expensive, boring, ‘dirty’ or just not his style.
A few weeks ago he received the menu for Chaîne des Rôtisseurs 2016 Christmas Dinner. The price is 70 € only for the menu. To us a cheap way to get an insight in the traditional Portuguese Kitchen… with at twist – our alternative would be visiting several restaurants. And based on our experience with CdR – the quality will be good…. no chef wants to get in ‘bad standing’ with his or her chef colleagues joining the dinner – that would be too embarrassing 🙂
