Blue Jas­mine

JJK e-magazine - - TOP TABLES + BARS -

™ STRATE­GI­CALLY LO­CATED ON JL. KYAI MAJA NEAR TA­MAN PURING IN SOUTH JAKARTA, BLUE JAS­MINE HAS BE­COME A BIG PART OF JAKARTA’S RESTAU­RANT SCENE, WHERE DE­LI­CIOUS FOOD IS SERVED IN A WELL-DE­SIGNED SPACE. IN THIS CASE, GREAT STRIDES HAVE BEEN TAKEN TO EN­SURE THAT THE RESTAU­RANT’S AT­MOS­PHERE RE­SEM­BLES ITS NAME. TOUCHES OF BLUE ARE SCAT­TERED AROUND THE IN­TE­RI­ORS, CUL­MI­NAT­ING IN A CHIC AND MIN­I­MAL­IST STYLE. WE HAD THE PRIV­I­LEGE OF TALK­ING TO BLUE JAS­MINE’S AC­COUNT EX­EC­U­TIVE MICHAEL FLO­RI­ANO, AND WERE KEEN TO FIND OUT WHAT SEP­A­RATES THIS RESTAU­RANT FROM OTH­ERS IN THE CROWD. CAN YOU ELAB­O­RATE ON BLUE JAS­MINE’S CON­CEPT? THE BLUE JAS­MINE IS A SMALL BLUE FLOWER WITH A SWEET FRA­GRANCE THAT ONLY EX­ISTS IN A WHIM­SI­CAL WORLD. THE NAME WAS CHO­SEN TO SUG­GEST A REIN­TER­PRE­TA­TION OF OLD FAVOURITES INTO MOD­ERN CLAS­SICS. THE JAS­MINE IT­SELF IS THE FLOWER OF LIFE, PU­RITY, AND SA­CRED­NESS. MEAN­WHILE THE PHOENIX BIRD IS A SYM­BOL NOT ONLY OF UNITY AND HAR­MONY, BUT ALSO OF ROY­ALTY AND FES­TIVE CEL­E­BRA­TIONS. I FEEL THE COM­BI­NA­TION OF THE TWO SYM­BOLS REP­RE­SENTS OUR CORE PHI­LOS­O­PHY: TO PRO­VIDE A ROYAL AND FES­TIVE DIN­ING EX­PE­RI­ENCE THAT BRINGS LIFE TO THOSE WHO DINE HERE. CAN YOU EX­PLAIN A BIT ABOUT THE RESTAU­RANT’S DE­SIGN? IN­SIDE THE BLUE JAS­MINE, GUESTS MAY FEEL THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TRANS­PORTED BACK IN TIME AND HAVE ES­CAPED FROM THE ROUGH­NESS OF THE CITY. OUR IN­TE­RIOR IS IN­SPIRED BY BRI­TISH-COLO­NIAL AR­CHI­TEC­TURE, WITH A BUNCH OF WHITE TONES, MIN­I­MAL­IST SPA­CES, AND ALSO SHADES OF BLUE SCAT­TERED THROUGH­OUT THE SMALL DE­TAILS. I THINK THE AT­MOS­PHERE IS MOD­ERN BUT ALSO CALM­ING AND IDYL­LIC. ON OUR TER­RACE, GUESTS CAN EN­JOY AN AL­FRESCO DIN­ING EX­PE­RI­ENCE WITH THE PEACE­FUL TRICK­LING SOUNDS OF A WA­TER FOUN­TAIN. WHAT SHOULD VIS­I­TORS EX­PECT WHEN THEY VISIT BLUE JAS­MINE? ASIDE FROM THE DE­LIGHT­FUL AT­MOS­PHERE, GUESTS CAN EX­PECT INDO-ORI­ENT DISHES THAT DRAW IN­SPI­RA­TION FROM COM­FORT FOODS FROM THIS PAR­TIC­U­LAR GE­O­GRAPH­I­CAL LO­CA­TION. THIS CON­CEPT IS REIN­TER­PRETED INTO A MOD­ERN PRE­SEN­TA­TION, AND IS COM­PLE­MENTED BY A CA­SUAL AND CHIC DIN­ING EX­PE­RI­ENCE. WE BE­LIEVE IN GOOD FOOD CRE­ATED WITH THE FINEST IN­GRE­DI­ENTS, FRIENDLY SER­VICE AND A GREAT AM­BI­ENCE. WHAT ARE BLUE JAS­MINE’S SIG­NA­TURE DISHES?
