White Modern Cuisine Launches New Menu

White Modern Cuisine Launches New Menu

Chef-Owner Urvin Croes and the entire staff at White Modern Cuisine are pleased to announce the launching of a new menu at our Gold Coast Club House location. 

As Chef Urvin puts it, “The new menu is like a WMC renaissance. We’re getting back to our roots of innovative modern cuisine that is rooted in the Caribbean but fused with Asian and French influences that reflect the ‘melting-pot’ of rich cultural diversity on One Happy Island. This is the kind of menu that made headlines in the culinary world back when we first got started in 2012.”

Some of the prices are lower with this new menu, proving that ultra-modern, artistic cuisine and fine dining doesn’t have to be ridiculously expensive. Of course, some dishes remain naturally expensive because of what goes into them, such as high-end veal and lamb. Without further ado, here is what you’ll find on the new menu at White Modern Cuisine:
