SEA GRAIN RESTAURANT & BAR Opens at The DoubleTree by Hilton
Sea Grain Restaurant & Bar is set to attract diners with it’s interesting Mediterranean cuisine with a local twist.
AS I ENTERED Sea Grain, I immediately knew I would like it. It’s industrial and modern interiors are rustic, warm and casual, with the right amount of whimsy. Turning left to the bar area, my eyes are transfixed to the colorful mural painted onto the wall, then my eyes dart to the cool outdoor sitting area, which took full advantage of the cool breeze that fine late afternoon. I already like what I see.
Located on the 3rd floor of the DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta Diponogoro, the restaurant and bar’s design is best described as relaxed with a rich mix of colors and fabrics which reflect the lavish ambiance of the area. Boasting impressive interior design, featuring 640 square meters of indoor and outdoor spaces, includes three private dining rooms.
Together with the vibrant atmosphere, the menus emphasize the freshness of each ingredient, Sea Grain features a local twist on Mediterranean cuisine. Chef de cuisine Ahmad Nurseha has combined his great knowledge of Mediterranean cooking and expertly and tastefully blends the flavor and spices using local produce. “Using local ingredients, we offer a selection of the best Mediterranean favorites that fit both the local and international palate in order to provide our guests a unique variety of flavors and an unforgettable culinary journey,” explains Chef Ahmad.
Dinner that night clearly reflected Mediterranean flavors, but Chef Ahmad also obviously used distinct local fruits and produce to give the flavors a local twist. I enjoyed his shrimp and mango salad, the bouillabaisse soup and my beef main, which was perfectly cooked.
Sea Grain is open for dinner and after-hours drinks, it provides the perfect setting for the fun and hip crowd. The ideal venue for a sumptuous meal, to savour a glass of wine from their extensive wine list, or to simply unwind on a comfy sofa and feel the light evening breeze from the semi-outdoor spaces.
“Walid Ouezini, our Food and Beverage Manager here at the DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta – Diponegoro, created a great signature cocktail, our homemade Sangria. By adding a bounty of fresh local fruits to the Mediterranean character of the drink, he created a unique signature drink based on his secret recipe,” said Markus Kaliss, General Manager.
