2016.3.30 Hotel Events
Reopening: Just in time for spring, Park Hyatt Seoul is bringing Cornerstone: Cucina Italiana back to Seoul. After a top-to-bottom renovation, led by Japanese design firm Super Potato, the restaurant is once again offering the latest in luxury: exquisite Italian food, inspired partly by the cooking style popular in southern Italy. Chef Massimiliano Ziano with his team creates dishes that conjure up the feeling of Italy. Simplicity is the hallmark of all Italian regions, and that is achieved through the use of seasonal products that are served such that they taste the way they do in nature.
Chef Ziano uses Piedmontese beef, exclusive to the restaurant, to provide guests with steaks that have less marbling but still offer a refined taste. Fish is delivered daily from Jeju, such as, depending on the season, mackerel, herring, halibut, yellowtail, sea bass, skate and an array of shellfish. The restaurant has a variety of Italian cheeses, from 28-month aged parmigiano to Tuscan pecorino and creamy gorgonzola. The restaurant also has over 40 different wines served by glass for those who want to pair their food with drinks. In addition, the restaurant has an eclectic range of Italian sodas, beers and coffees. Guests can enjoy Vancheri coffee, for example, a premium Italian blend from Caltanissetta in Sicily.
The restaurant offers a buffet-style breakfast, plus à la carte and set menus for lunch and dinner. A la carte items start at 12,000 won ($10.50); pastas from 20,000 won; meat and fish plates from 34,000 won; lunch sets from 48,000 won; and dinner sets from 79,000 won.
In celebration of its reopening, Cornerstone is offering dinner guests a free Italian premium coffee when ordering a dessert, available until May 31.
