CUE Podgorica recently refreshed the existing menu with a new selection of unusual and exquisite dishes. The credit for refreshing the menu goes to the new chef, Slobodan Radmanovic. Under his watchful eye, dishes come out of the kitchen into the hotel restaurant, and into the favourite “living room” of many residents and tourists, The Living Room Lounge & Dining.
From an early age, Radmanovic was inspired to become a chef through food preparations for family gatherings and celebrations. With the support of his parents, he enrolled in a catering school, and from there he gained experience in various, well-known restaurants in Montenegro, which gave him great opportunities to prove his love for cooking.
He passed numerous educations, seminars and fairs in Greece, Italy, Spain, France and other countries, and deepened his experiences related to world cuisines, especially Mediterranean cuisine. According to him, it is one of the best balanced and diverse cuisines globally. Radmanovic singles out Jose Andres as his role model, due to his incredible cooking skills and creativity, as well as his humanitarian work (preparing a huge number of meals for people affected by disasters around the world).
The new menu offers foods with flavours that are hard to resist. First-class meat and fish lovers, vegans, vegetarians, organic food lovers and everybody else can enjoy the perfect snacks. The chef follows global gastronomic trends but will tell you that he always stays innovative thanks to the irresistible local charm. Arriving at CUE Podgorica, he first adapted himself to the existing menu and then made slight evolution of the same, because he found it already very good. The alterations are visible in the different processing and presentation of dishes, as well as in the usage of new raw materials. He focused on the specific preparation of salads, octopus, risottos, lamb and new cakes, striving to provide a quality choice for all guests.
