Al Mare – Food & Menu
Our food is inspired by many trips to Italy and Spain where we enjoy the simplicity of the cooking using only the finest seasonal ingredients; it is how we like to cook and eat. At the time of your event, Jake our head chef will select the finest seasonal ingredients to create a delicious menu very similar to the menu below.
Central to our cooking is an open fire over which we grill fresh seafood and prime cuts of meat. Your menu may include fresh baked focaccia and anchoïade, a selection of the season’s fresh vegetables and artisan salamis before your starter is served. This may be cured fish, ceviche, fresh crab or lobster, or a simple salad with the finest burrata.
