With experienced chefs masterminding the menu, Gatsby Mansion's kitchen is capably versatile, infusing a striking spin on modern cuisine.

Start with charming canapés of Cajun Prawn with Guacamole, featuring crunchy tortilla chips crowned with tender Cajun-spiced shrimp and terrifically textured avocado puree, and Foie Gras with Sun-Dried Cherry Grape Chutney, showcasing lusciously pan-seared French duck liver, layered with tomatoes and fruits in baguette crisps. Perfect for whetting the palate.

The Gatsby Tower (RM388) evokes a savoury high tea for dinner, spectacularly presented with three tiers of seasonal temptations, terrific for two to four persons to share.
Lip-smacking highlights might comprise the Mini Pitan Tofu (silky farm egg custard laced with century eggs), Salmon Cheese Rolls (sashimi-grade chilled trout roll with cheese), Foie Gras Sticks (crisp-surfaced foie with a soft pink centre), Special Negi Toro Maki (tuna belly rolled with sea urchin, leek and black caviar), Ebi Ninniku Sticks (char-grilled tiger prawns with garlic mayonnaise sauce), Salmon Blossom Rose (salmon with ikura) and Kaki Mentai Cheese Yaki (grilled oyster with spicy cod roe).

Soup is an alluring affair - the Carrot with Pumpkin is a comfortingly creamy concoction that comes alive with vegetarian-friendly pumpkin, sweet carrots and subtle garlic (RM28), while the Wild Mushroom is soulfully hot and hearty, thick with mushrooms, plus onions and herbs that enhance the earthiness of this ensemble, tinged with white truffle (RM28).

Many of Gatsby Mansion's creations weave together Japanese ingredients with European inflections. For a graceful, gorgeous main course, go for the Soba with Uni (RM98), alluringly assembled with uni, tobiko, katsuobushi, yakinori kizami and caviar.

The Nama Scallops (RM138) harmoniously bring together the sea's plump, succulently seared molluscs with tantalisingly earthy truffle wild fungus crème, sliced summer truffles and micro greens, plus Parmigiano crisps for salty textural contrast.

Gindara Teriyaki (RM168) sounds conventional, but Gatsby Mansion puts a special spin on this familiar Japanese fish dish with uni soy sauce that blends the sweetness of sea urchin with umami, rounded out with pumpkin confit, baby spinach and caviar.

Red meat done right: Gatsby Mansion's Lamb Loin (RM178) is pure protein perfection, with lamb loin marinated with an upliftingly zesty tang, partnered with ratatouille, truffle crushed Idaho potatoes and rosemary jus, worthy to serve at a modern Parisian brasserie.
