Niko Romito has curated the cuisine at the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts of Beijing, Dubai and Shanghai. This new concept is conceived to establish a true ‘canon’ of contemporary Italian cooking and to share and express the culture, elegance and vitality of ‘Made in Italy’ to the maximum.
“True flavor is an absolute value, and as such it can speak to everyone: the challenge is to distill it, export it and ensure that the world learns to recognize it. We worked to create an anthology of ‘standards’: great classics of our tradition in which the essence of Italian dining is synthesized” explains Niko Romito. This is the food that I would like to eat far from home, my ‘ideal’ of Italian cooking. Whoever goes to a Bulgari hotel and dines at a Ristorante Niko Romito, whether in China or Dubai or anywhere else in the world, will leave with the feeling of having visited our country, even if they’ve never set foot there”.
Silvio Ursini, Executive Vice President of Bulgari, declares “We’ve been closely following Niko Romito’s project, and we feel that his interpretation of Italian cuisine and training of new talents are a perfect fit, and will allow us to guarantee a unique experience in our new hotels”.
Each and every element of the restaurant’s ambiance has been hand-picked to guarantee a seamless dining experience. Raised banquettes offer a better view of the Arabian Gulf, as a dramatic black ceiling gives the impression of dining at night under the sky. Bvlgari Hotels and Resorts’ own Michelin starred Italian chef, Niko Romito, has curated a blend of modern and classical Italian concept exclusively for Il Ristorante, interpreting the exquisite flavours of Italy with modern simplicity. Working from his three starred restaurant in Italy and regularly counseling his personally trained chef, resident in the hotel he brings to Il Ristorante – Niko Romito a menu that expresses the Italian culture at its best.
