The latest evolution of The Manor’s Stories of the Sea – the Eighth Chapter – offers a wealth of seafood extravagance and showcasing the finest ingredients of seas of the world.

Signature dishes of Stories of the Sea – the Eighth Chapter, include fresh Belon Oyster served with yuzu sorbet and tapioca passion fruit, and aged raspberry vinegar foam. The acidity of the citrus and berries balance the saltiness and strong flavors of the oyster, providing a sense of freshness on the palate. The eighth iteration of the Stories of the Sea menu includes seared sturgeon capped with Baerii caviar and a selection of rich side dishes featuring French Ratte potatoes, then followed by smoked Atlantic mackerel with green beans, soaked in tuna fish broth and garnished with mackerel tartare and Oscietra caviar.
