BANGKOK – 15 November 2019: Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok invites food aficionados to experience an exciting modern take on some of the finest Italian classic dishes at Scalini.
Chef de Cuisine Enrique Gonzales Abilleira has selected the Bistecca - a succulent, premium cut of T-bone steak weighing from 1kg – 1.4kg - as the star dish to spearhead the new look Scalini restaurant. Inspired by an original recipe, this char-grilled, stone oven-roasted bistecca is cooked to a sizzling perfection.
The bistecca is served with a choice of three rich marinades: Spicy Nam Tog Rub (mildly spicy and typically oriental); Roasted Garlic & Black Truffle (an Italian classic that’s delightfully aromatic and robust), and a French classic ‘Spicy Foie Gras (rich and buttery).
Chef Enrique has also selected negroni, a popular Italian cocktail, as the recommended beverage to reflect the style and ambience of the new-look Scalini restaurant. Negroni is also the perfect aperitif before enjoying Chef Enrique’s Bistecca. Invented by Count Camillo Negroni in Florence, Italy, the negroni is a well-balanced cocktail that is perfect for any social gathering. Stirred to perfection in a 1-1-1 ratio, the cocktail features three ingredients: barrel-aged Campari, gin and vermouth. For the finishing touch the negroni is topped off with a tangy orange peel garnish and served ‘on the rocks’.
Rachel Davidson, Cluster General Manager at Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok, explained, “The secret to a popular and successful restaurant is evolution. Scalini has always been recognized as a home for authentic Italian cuisine and Chef Enrique is now using his knowledge and expertise to introduce new recipes and flavors to our local and international guests.
“We have retained the décor, furnishings and open kitchen at Scalini because these are features that create an exceptional atmosphere and ambience. The innovation lies within the new dishes that I am sure will create intrigue and will most certainly delight our discerning clientele,” added Rachel Davidson.
Scalini is located on the second floor of the Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok, Soi Sukhumvit 24.
