Helmed by acclaimed Italian chef Enrico Bartolini, Fiamma is set to capture palates when it opens on The Peak in Hong Kong next month.
As the temperature drops and the seasons change, there are few cuisines that are as soothing for the soul as Italian. Cheeses (plural), rich sauces, a seductive contrast of salty and sweet, followed by a carb overload – simplicity and decadence at once.
If you like your Italian authentic and your views panoramic, you might want to climb high above the city to the Peak Galleria, where the opening of Fiamma will mark the second restaurant in the city (after Spiga) by chef Bartolini, the Italian chef with the most Michelin stars in the world.
Catering to 110 guests, the new eatery features a main dining room in timber and blue mosaic tile, and a spacious alfresco patio, and takes its inspiration from the traditional Italian home kitchen, serving fresh and wholesome comfort dishes by head chef Paolo Olivieri in a relaxing and inviting setting. There’s a touch of Mediterranean seasonality as well as plenty of family-style classics, including housemade breads and pastas.
There will also be Med-inspired cocktails on offer, as well as a Grab ‘n’ Go counter, perfect for lads looking to picnic on the Peak Trail. Think of the latter as your motivation to walk the 4km path, and the former as your reward for a job well done.
