Wow. All I can say is wow. I am alone in Roma for the day waiting for the Bolland fam and ask the concierge where I should eat….
It’s as though I’ve been led by a force because with no map and just walking down random streets I find ‘via di fontana’ and take a tiny elevator to the top floor of a boutique hotel where lies HighRes, Italian/japanese fusion…
Okay, since I don’t know how to comment on each pic here’s the rundown:
1) the view from my tavola
2) oh, just a pelligrino/missoni collabo. No bigs.
3) baby octopus and potato salad topped with a local olive tapenade. That fried thing is a squash blossom that they must have JUST picked, battered and fried.
4) I couldn’t wait to eat this so here are the leftovers! This was taglioni with orange rind, aged ricotta and those tamarid looking numbers are bottarga of sea bream. The strangest combo but damned good!!
5) This is what you get when you say that you don’t want dessert in Italy. Note the 75% cacao. My favorite…
