Michelin-Starred Chef Nicola Russo Of Tosca Restaurant Re-Interprets His Tuscan Heritage Through An Innovative Culinary Journey At The St. Regis Bangkok

Chef Nicola Russo of 1-Michelin-starred Tosca restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong presents innovative Italian fine dining at Jojo, drawing inspiration from his Tuscan roots and worldly experience. Exquisite ingredients are showcased in gastronomic lunch and dinner tasting menus, as well as a specially curated selection of a la carte dishes.

Born in Pisa, Chef Nicola honed his craft in a number of Michelin starred restaurants and luxury hotels around the world before he was handpicked to take the culinary helms at Tosca. Under his stewardship, the Italian fine dining restaurant has maintained its Michelin star rating for two consecutive years, during which time Chef Nicola has also become a figurehead of Italian cuisine in Hong Kong.

At the heart of the culinary experience is the use of quality ingredients, including risotto made with top quality aged Carnaroli rice called Acquerello, and for the main course, choice cuts of Smoked Beef Tenderloin and Mediterranean Seabass.

Chef Nicola’s passion for delicate seafood is expressed through the choice of antipasti, including a beautifully presented Sea Cappuccino which captures the flavors of sea urchin and prawns; and Hokkaido Scallops paired with Jerusalem artichokes and winter black truffle.

The chef’s Italian heritage shines through in pasta dishes, including a creamy Wild Mushroom Risotto made with 10 different kinds of mushrooms from Italy, France, and Japan; and Agnolotti stuffed with free range chicken and creamy chicken liver parfait.

For dessert, a Ricotta white chocolate indulgence presents strawberries prepared in four different ways and enhanced with a touch of ginger paying homage to the chef’s current Asian home.

Chef Nicola Russo Menu Options:

4-Course Lunch Menu: THB 2,100++

6-Course Dinner Menu: THB 2,950++

An a la carte menu available during lunch and dinner includes individual dishes from the tasting menus, along with additional options such as the traditional Piedmontese veal starter Vitello Tonnato, Lobster Linguine and Suckling Pig.

Seating at Jojo in The St. Regis Bangkok is limited so diners are advised to make advance reservations for the lunch and dinner menus presented by Chef Nicola Russo from 21 – 24 February 2019.
