Meirton Fine Dining, a Casual Experience
Meirton Fine Dining is the second restaurant to hit Jakarta from the esteemed Griya Group, well known for their cool rooftop hangout Lobbyn Kitchen & Bar. Located in the Office Park 18, South Jakarta, Meirton Fine Dining is the best example of accessible and affordable ‘fine’ dining. With a concept similar to that of Union Deli, their casual atmosphere allows nearby office workers to stop by for lunch without the pressure of a high class suit-and-tie restaurant.
Great for simple chats over simple cocktails with friends and colleagues, the bar is always fully stocked and the food has an easy home-cooked elegance. Expend to spend an hour if not more at Meirton Fine Dining as the pace is as leisurely and unrushed as the seats are comfortable.
We started off with a refreshingly uncomplicated Orange Ale (IDR 44.000). A classic mix of orange juice, ginger ale and sweet grenadine, this non-alcoholic beverage will be sure to wake you up at midday (when no alcohol is allowed!)
The Beef Wellington, made famous by Chef Gordon Ramsay’s incessant shouting, is one of Meirton Fine Dining’s staples. Though we ordered a medium, the beef was cooked to an even medium-rare. The puff pastry was perfectly crisp on the top but a little raw on the bottom, which we know some people like. The black pepper sauce was probably too spicy, but balanced well with the plainness of the beef and the acidity of the side salad – the vinaigrette was amazing.
We also tried their famous Margherita Pizza, delightfully cheesy on the top, with a sweet and tangy house-made tomato sauce piled atop a soft pizza base. That’s right, the pizza base is soft and won’t become hard no matter how long you leave it, so feel free to talk the night away. Yumm…
We finished the lunch with a sweet Strawberry Millefeuille where the Chef put his own twist on the classic puff pastry millefeuille by using a rich butter cream. The strawberry puree was what really made it, however. A great balance of sweet and sour.
Right now, Meirton Fine Dining is running their Happy Hour promotion starting at 5pm till close with a buy two cocktails get one free.
