The menu has been curated and designed by Chef Ajay Anand, Chief Culinary Designer which will be presented to the guests by Chef Ashish Dhar, Culinary Designer and Chef IN charge at Pluck. The menu is divided into 10 sections. Lightly Touched feature dishes that are not entirely raw, but not cooked either.
The crunch of the freshly plucked leafy greens is complemented with light marinades that make the dishes as good as raw. Whether it is the Light Spinach Salad with Crispy Bacon & Mushrooms Blue Cheese Aioli or the Crunchy Smoked Salmon & Tenka, these farm-fresh and scrumptious choices set the tone for the meal.
Hearty Soups take one beyond the average daily soups. At Pluck, soups are served in unusual combinations like Mushrooms and Chestnuts done in a deconstructed form and assembled on the table to make this a novel and interactive experience for guests. Moreover, the Molecular gastronomy elements lend a different character to the soups altogether.
Dishes in the Embers & Smokedsection are portioned a little more than appetisers and a little less than the main courses. Here, all dishes are done sous vide and finished with smoky hints. In the Lobster Salad Avocado Cheddar Panacotta, the Avocado bears a smoked bacon flavour which is a sensory delight.
The Grill section follows the same footsteps. All dishes are done sous vide and are finished on the grill. The result is a juicy meat of choice which is grilled just before being served. Grilled Chicken : en sous vide Morel jus, Spiced fries, Sticky cabbage is a dish to look out for. In the Roast section, a Pan Roasted Lamb Rack with Mustard Praline, Pomelo threads, Caramelized Onions & Spinach Puree, makes for a complete meal. To connect diners to the roots of the country, the Local section highlights some Indian dishes with modern contemporary touches.
All these can be savoured with Sides of Baby Spinach, Grilled Vegetables, Sautéed Garlic Broccoli, Corn, Parmesan Cream & Garlic or Seasonal mushrooms. Natural Potato at Pluck can be savoured three ways: plain old Baked Potato, the same can be savoured in a Smoked Chipotle flavour or Bacon and Crispy Garlic flavour.
