Sharp tastes and balanced condiments are the Chef’s signature.

Those with a sweet tooth can satisfy their carving with the fruits Cannoli that is reinvented every day. In live cooking, the Ice Roll brings a fun and fresh touch to desserts, with its mix of avocado, mango, lime, Mara des Bois strawberry, Marscarpone, Amaretto.
