The summer solstice has hit Split as we celebrate the official start of a new season, though with the busy crowds in the city center since Easter weekend and temperatures hitting 30 degrees Celsius for what feels like months, summer never felt too far away this time around.
As we welcome back travelers from all parts of the world with tourism in full swing, we are reminded of the record 2019 season before the pandemic rattled our adventures. Our only issue now is finding a sanctuary in Split to kick back, cool off, and indulge – but Brasserie on 7 is perfect for just that.
While it may be situated on Split’s most famous street, this Riva favorite continues to impress year after year, with standout menus crafted by French American Executive Chef Alexandre Ange. And this summer is no different.
We already know all about the meal that made Brasserie on 7 famous – brunch. But with eggs benedict, brioche french toast, and shakshuka on the menu, we’re not surprised. Brasserie also ensures options for guests looking to stay healthy on holiday, with acai bowls, yogurt and homemade granola, and 100% fresh fruit juices to keep you glowing and going in the summer sun.
The lunch and dinner menu honors local produce and modern takes on Dalmatian classics to add a touch of flair to your fare. The decadent prawn tartare is dressed with wasabi mayo, red pepper coulis & toasted nori, while the tangy and refreshing endive & citrus salad cools your palate with grapefruit, orange, red onion, and radish.
The Seafood Risotto standouts with a scampi bisque, prawns, clams, squid & parmesan, and the Smoked Fish “Carbonara” uses Adriatic fish, cream & parmesan to up an all-time classic. Those wanting to stick to the more authentic side of Dalmatian cuisine can enjoy the clams ‘buzara’, market fish, or grilled octopus.
And for the meat-eaters in the group? The 45-Day Dry-Aged Rib-Eye is adorned with roasted cauliflower, capers, almonds & black truffle bearnaise, and the Duck Confit is plated with gingered potato, roasted peppers, arugula & honey-mustard vinaigrette.
Chef Alexandre Ange also designs a weekly menu in addition to the la carte lunch and dinner dining, which evolves depending on what’s in season and available. Don’t forget to check in with the waitstaff to find out what’s on this week!
And we haven’t even gotten to the desserts…
