Rossini's Restaurant at Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit
Tantalising Tastes and Touches of Tuscany in Sukhumvit0
Rossini’s, the award-winning Italian restaurant at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, remains as essential as ever to Bangkok’s fine-dining scene. This elegant signature outlet continues to present its creative take on traditional Italian cuisine, combining top quality imported ingredients with innovative techniques, enhanced by gorgeous interiors evoking the setting of a Tuscan countryside villa.
With direct access via a skywalk from the Asok BTS Skytrain Station and Sukhumvit MRT Underground Station, Rossini’s is your stylish oasis in central Bangkok for wining and dining.
Within the luxurious enclosures of the Sheraton Grande, Rossini’s subtle and warm lighting helps soothe the mood and mind, transporting you far away from hectic Bangkok, and into relaxed rural Tuscany. Details include domed ceilings with wooden beams, floors comprised of veneered tiles mimicking cobbles, and a large mock fireplace and chimney.
Rossini’s welcomes group diners or business meetings in its special partitioned dining section, and is definitely ideal for couples who will find intimacy in the cosy candlelit corners.
Open for dinner from 18:00 every evening, Rossini’s presents its fine selections a la carte, though you might also want to ask for the list of chef’s special, which is featured almost daily. Our own three-course journey had a sparkling start with a Prosecco Valdobbiadene Follador, together with an amuse-bouche comprising aromatic diced fish topped with a thin squid ink-infused wafer. Signature bread is baked in house at Rossini's Bangkok, split into four different flavours it came served with olive oil, butter and a unique eggplant paste.
Since our last visit there were several additions to the Rossini's menu, including tuna tartare with Tuscan pate, beef cheek with a celery and hazlenut jus and an alluring cod fillet, so we were keen to try these additions and see the new style of stylish modern plating on show.
Recommeneded appetisers include the signature foie gras: an unforgettably soft and rich seared goose liver, presented in sweet pumpkin foam, balsamic reduction and amaretti crumble that perfectly complements the soft textures (830 baht). Large, meaty medallions of seared scallops and Taggiasca olives also prove a memorable starter, served with a vanilla-scented caramelised cauliflower sauce. A new dish on the menu is a classic of French and Italian cuisine: beef tartare, cut into thick chunks, with a coarse Tuscan pate and crispy bread crumbs to add some interesting contrast to the incredibly soft meat (650 baht). For a pasta course, our clear favourite is the sage butter veal ravioli with truffle sauce for 580 baht. Each ingredient is distinct and rich - a signature Italian pasta dish. Pair this with a crisp Ata Rangi New Zealand Chardonnay which is the perfect foil for the rich flavours.
For our main course at Rossini's we can't look past the braised wagyu beef cheek (990 baht), which has been added to the menu along with the longstanding sirlion of wagyu. The beef cheek is far more flavoursome, with the oily overtures expertly balanced by a clean celery root puree, and further enhanced with a touch of hazlenut. Rossini’s retain the traditional flavours of this dish well and paired this dish with a full-bodied Glaetzer Wallace Shiraz, hailing from Barossa Valley, offering soft tannic touches and a peppery finish.
The veal tenderloin is another hearty dish comprised of three medallions with a dash of peppered sauce, Brussels sprouts and baby potatoes as sides. We shared the generous serving, which also included another dish of tender snow fish served with potato foam and a topping of San Danielle ham shavings adding another dimension to the taste and texture, with a mingling of tender and crisp creating a delightful interplay with every bite. Desserts are also heavenly at Rossini’s with tempting selections such as the mascarpone mousse tiramisu, made with coffee, lady fingers and biscuits, or the limoncello soufflé with soft chocolate and blood orange sorbet.
At Rossini’s, guests are assured of impeccable service by knowledgeable waiting staff and even from Sheraton Grande personalities. We had the brief company of Sheraton Grande’s General Manager Mr. Richard Chapman, and Hotel Manager Mr. Matthias Sutter, who visited every table to greet guests and ensure we were treated well: we were.
One of the special highlights at Rossini’s is the regular Primo Vino series. Principally, this ‘prime wines’ has long attracted wine-and-dine connoisseurs in Bangkok on the incredible opportunity to experience a range of premium and vintage wine selections at wholesale prices. Winemakers of various labels from around the world frequently fly in with their finest and personal selections to present and pair them with Rossini’s innovative dishes.
In addition to the stunning a la carte menu, Rossini’s hosts enduringly popular wine dinners where guests can be spoiled with a set course dinner with wine pairing from some of the most esteemed labels in the world. These events enjoy a loyal following from Bangkok residents and are usually sold out many days in advance. Read More...
