The Return of Bottega Ristorante
There are several doors to access this place. One is through Bottega Ristorante’s very own bar – the Dirty Laundry – and the other is through its own door.
For fans of the old Bottega Ristorante, there’s no need to worry because almost everything about the new place caters to their memories of the original, sticking to the restaurant’s own idiosyncrasies to an amazing degree.
The interior is set to evoke the glam of the old address in a much roomier space. Houndstooth check covers the chairs. Dim light from the industrial-esque chandelier is set so that vines seem to climb the walls.
For a starter, you can try the beet and sugar snap pea salad which is composed of crispy beets with honey vinaigrette, mesclun greens, candied almonds and crumbled gorgonzola.
You then can proceed to a porcini coffee rubbed steak which is made from 300 grams of USDA prime sirloin rubbed with dried porcini and arabica coffee with charred leeks.
Dessert is not a minor event at Bottega Ristorante. The most recommended dish is flourless hazelnut chocolate cake. This dessert is claimed to be gluten free, yet it still has the right texture and that subtle taste. Some details might have changed at Bottega Ristorante, but the formula remains intact; things fall into place and nobody feels they’re missing out.
