Continuing the success of the previous iterations of the Stories of the Sea menus, Chef Michele has brought together the finest ingredients from the seas of the world with his extensive culinary expertise to indulge guests with a highly refined dining experience without peer in Macau.
Showcasing the finest seafood, including bluefin tuna, black Bouchot mussels from France, and “Glacier 51” toothfish, the signature dish of the fifth chapter of the Stories of the Sea is Kamchatka king crab and langoustine (sourced from Russia and Australia).

Guests looking to elevate their Stories of the Sea dining experience even further are encouraged to select the optional wine pairing menu that features a carefully selected range of premium wines from France, Italy, New Zealand, and Portugal, specifically to highlight the freshness of the sea ingredients and enhance the flavor experience.
