Bvlgari Hotels & Resorts is launching the 'Grand Tour' project: a tasting menu created by chef Niko Romito for Il Ristorante of the Bvlgari Hotels and Resorts collection.

The menu will be introduced throughout 2019 at the Bvlgari properties of Beijing, Shanghai, Dubai and Milan, and will be available for a month in each location. The Grand Tour ‘starts’ at Il Ristorante - Niko Romito of the Bvlgari Hotel in Beijing in March and will be available until mid April. The menu will then be introduced at the Bvlgari Hotel Shanghai in April, followed by the Bvlgari Resort Dubai in October and the Bvlgari Hotel Milano in November.

Romito is the chef patron of the three Michelin-starred Reale restaurant in Abruzzo, ranked 36th in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. He curates the gastronomic concept of the Bvlgari Hotels & Resorts in Beijing, Dubai, Shanghai and Milan.

The new Grand Tour menu is inspired by the sabbatical trip taken by young European intellectuals in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to explore Italian art, culture and gastronomy. The essential stops on the tour were: Venice, Florence, Bologna, Rome, Naples and Palermo. Based on this idea, Romito has created a menu that brings together the traditional dishes of these Italian destinations.
