Monty’s menu

Matthew Steeples samples a menu inspired by Monty Python at The Rib Room

 

Michele Caggianese, the manger of The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower is a man who can be relied upon to come up with clever marketing ideas and in his latest menu offering he’s created something that enables diners to “taste The Meaning of Life”.

 

Following on from promotions linking cocktails to the biting footballer Luis Suárez and the cognac for breakfast loving European politician Jean-Claude Juncker, Caggianese has developed a special menu in celebration of regular John Cleese and the reunion shows of his comedy legends group, Monty Python.

The menu’s highlight is a reasonably priced ground rib burger that has been named The Cleeseburger. Priced at just £14, it comes with mustard and honey glazed onions, Sussex crumble cheese and steak fries.

I sampled the menu myself last weekend with a financier friend on the restaurant’s cigar terrace and we both opted for the crab and lobster burger. Named The Full Monty and described as “the ultimate burger”, we were both truly impressed by both the size and quality of this dish. Accompanied by thermidor sauce, lime mayonnaise and a tomato and red onion salad, it is priced at £22.

 

Caggianese concludes:

 

“Monty Python is a great British institution, very much like The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant, so it is a pleasure to show our appreciation for their comedy genius”.

 

The Meaning of Life menu is available at The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant until 20th July.
