Voltaggio’s New Menu Hits The Langham

Former Bazaar chef de cuisine and Top Chef contestant Michael Voltaggio has hit The Dining Room at The Langham Hotel with a new menu just weeks after starting at the Michelin-starred Pasadena property. Being a good upseller, Voltaggio has also contributed a tasting menu pushing wine pairings and plate matching at the restaurant, which re-opened last Friday after a few weeks closed. The influences available a la carte mix classic international standards with contemporary technique, serving langoustine fish and chips, pastrami pigeon, and adding soy-watermelon to yellowtail sashimi or infusing Dover sole with “aromas” of lime and vanilla.
