Picasso is often considered one of the most unique dining experiences in town. Exquisite French cuisine paired with the extraordinary original artwork of contemporary artist Pablo Picasso. Award-winning chef Julian Serrano created elegant and updated French cuisine that has wowed its critics ever since inception. As if the lakeside setting for this restaurant wasn’t beautiful enough, the priceless artwork on the walls will leave you breathless as you realize the beauty and rarity of the pieces. There is a four-course prix fixe tasting menu available with a wine pairing and there is also a five-course prix fixe dinner menu.
Some of the favorite appetizers include a main lobster salad with apple and champagne vinaigrette, crème of butternut squash soup, and sautéed foie gras with pears and roasted walnuts. Some of the favorite main courses at Picasso include swordfish, Day Boat scallops, pheasant, veal chop, Maine lobster, and black bass. While these meats are interesting enough by themselves, the French are famous for their sauces and chef Serrano has created a variety of sauces and wine reductions to pair perfectly with each entrée. Even vegetables and side dishes are selected to marry the flavors perfectly with everything on your plate. This is very different from conventional steakhouse menus that allow you to pick from an a la carte menu and choose your own combination of flavors. The restaurant’s wine cellar is also something to rave about with over 1,000 wines from some of the finest vineyards in the world.
Picasso is one of the most elegant dining experiences in town. As soon as you enter, you will soon understand why the restaurant has received the AAA Five Diamond Award six years in a row. The dining room is decorated in subtle earth tones that only highlight the colorful paintings instead of take attention away from them.
