“This is a pivotal point in Baraka history. It is one of the biggest shifts that we have made besides actually moving the restaurant. We are changing the concept, which is a huge step for a restaurant that has been opened for 17 years, but it is so important to change for many reasons, both from Baraka point of view and the guest’s side.
To offer tasting menu only with no a la carte options is an idea that we have been speaking about for years. We really want all our guests to understand that dining at Baraka is an experience, „The Baraka Experience”, and one that people will remember. Dining at Baraka is the entertainment for the evening, and we do our best to make sure that our guests leave with a „wow!” sensation. Chef André Bicalho’s degustation menu, whether four or six courses, is a journey for the senses that we want all our guests to experience. That’s it. We know that each guest walking through our door will be surprised by each course, eager to know what’s coming next. Its a celebration of flavors, textures, scents, and the ingredients themselves.
Our slogan is „The Art of Fine Dining”, and we want each guest to experience as much as possible in the time spent with us. It truly is an art, and everyday is a celebration at Baraka.” – tells David, owner of Baraka.
And Leora continues…
“…We are restaurant for foodies “.. but who are the foodies? How can we make sure that those who are interested took their time and willing to spend their money with us will get the full experience? The full experience meaning the journey of flavors, textures to join our chef conducting his plates in harmony. Our responsibility as a restaurateur is to make sure that our guest will enjoy his experience with us to the fullest. This is our reason to shift from a la carte menu to tasting menu only.”
