Should Jakarta’s relentless frenzy for change ever wear you down, consider Bistecca the new steadfast, restorative institution for urban carnivores. An Italian-American restaurant created by The Union Group – the people behind Cork&Screw, Union and Loewy – and Chef Luca Pezzera, it is a chophouse with pedigree, a red-blooded menu and a splendid martini bar. Paying homage to great New York steakhouses of late 19th and mid 20th century as well as classic ristoranti of Florence, Bistecca excels in char and charm.
A place to harbor a romantic tête-à-tête, a pivotal business lunch or after-work drinks, Bistecca is set to be an icon in the Sudirman Central Business District. Delicious, exceptionally well-prepared food, fine Italian wines and properly made cocktails served in settings that were simultaneously elegant, comfortable and unpretentious.
