The Press Room has taken its time to fan out, finally branching out this month to Pavilion, nearly three years after first opening in Bangsar Shopping Center.
But this isn't a carbon copy of BSC's Press Room; singular specialties here include toasted 'Poilane' bread, named for the French boulanger Lionel whose stone-ground flour, wood-fired sourdough inspired what's served at Pavilion's Press Room Bistro.
Relish The Press Room's bread with crimson cold cuts like beef cecina and turkey chorizo ...
... or some of the creamiest seafood pate commercially available in KL ...
... or cheese: Roquefort and Reblochon were what we had, but Brie and Camembert are ready for customers craving milder flavors.
Also exclusive to Pavilion's Press Room: a European Josper charcoal broiler oven, supplying indoor barbecue-like possibilities for not only this rib-eye steak but a selection of salmon, tuna, prawns, spring chicken and lamb. Offered through midnight, with vanilla-apple puree.
Might rank this my favorite lasagna of 2012. Can't-be-beaten comfort food, splendidly soft, made luxurious with mushroom duxelles and white truffle oil.
