Meet executive chef Claudio Rossi and learn more about Park Hyatt Jakarta’s latest dining destinations.
Executive chef Claudio Rossi is no stranger to Jakarta. Having worked in the capital twice before, he found leading the culinary team of Park Hyatt Jakarta as the kind of challenge he aspired to undertake. With more than 30 years of experience in prominent hotels and restaurants around the world, the Milanese-native is currently overseeing the hotel’s five dining and drinking venues.
“My career took me to different countries mainly because of my love, passion and curiosity for food. I adore the artisanal aspects of cuisine, the simple house recipes made by mothers or small shop owners. However, at the same time, I also keep my eyes open to the world of innovative fine-dining and Michelin-starred restaurants because cuisine is always changing. Gastronomy is an exciting world that needs constant research and tasting,” says the chef.
The hotel’s spirited approach to all-day dining and late-night drinking pairs well with the stunning city views, highly visible from the venues’ windows or rooftops. “Jakarta’s dining scene is demanding: meals have to be quick, authentic, tasty, well-executed, and enough to be shared among family or friends. Here at Park Hyatt Jakarta, guests can find all of that under one roof,” adds Rossi.
Located on level 22, the sleek all-day dining restaurant is where guests get to enjoy a nourishing breakfast in the morning. Lunch and dinner offer guests the chance to taste authentic Italian regional cuisine and Javanese heritage fare. Highlights include Beef Carpaccio, Papardelle with braised Wagyu beef cheek and Black Ink Tagliolini. For the Javanese delights, find Pecel Madiun, Sate Maranggi and Iga Kambing Bakar Madu.
With four distinct areas to suit the guests’ needs, Conservatory is an inclusive destination. The Library is a perfect place to work while sipping a cup of Pu-Erh Cang Yuan tea. For meetings, opt for the Living Room where the Afternoon Tea experience is elevated with views of the National Monument. The Patisserie is suitable for that long awaited catch-up with friends over Bali Chocolate Cake. Last but not least, relax in the open-air Veranda after work with a bottle of wine.
Cocktail connoisseurs will find the refined ambience of The Bar perfectly suitable and its cocktails highly palatable. Enjoy Jakarta’s skyline, live music and one of its signature cocktails such as The Jasmin.
KITA 喜多 RESTAURANT & KITA BAR
Helmed by executive sous chef Takeumi Hiraoka, the recently opened KITA喜多Restaurant offers a progressive take on Japanese cuisine. Find a selection of sushi and sashimi, teppanyaki, shabu-shabu, tempura and teppanyaki to satiate your appetite. There are nine well-appointed private rooms for family gatherings or business events.
Downstairs, guests are welcomed to relax and enjoy the view from one of the highest rooftop bars in the city. KITA Bar is a perfect spot for after-work tipples and casual izakaya inspired small bites. From highballs to Yuyake, sip and savour life at its best.
