The June 1st menu isn't currently set, however, as a general guide, there will be 3-5 starters to choose from, 4-5 mains, and 3 deserts. There will be a vegetarian and a fish option, as well as chicken or veal. The emphasis is on seasonal ingredients and local produce. You can also have a look at the Mar 1 menu.
