Located in the exclusive Akira Back, Private Dining Room, Chef Gio will kick-start the culinary adventure with Avocado and Caviar, served with Thai basil, habanero, luxurious Oscietra Caviar, and nori rice crackers, followed by panko fried Dibba Bay Oyster and King Crab and Sweet Corn, made up of corn foam, king crab and green olive, hirame fish along with the flavorful haute sauce and the shisho gremolata with grated lemon zest flavors.
