STRATO

Time Out Malaysia Eating and Drinking Guide - - KL & SURROUNDS -

Warm­ing the senses and im­me­di­ately invit­ing, Troika Sky Din­ing’s Ital­ian restau­rant, Strato, is like a cosy, tiled kitchen in the clouds. Climb the slen­der, el­e­gant ‘rain stairs’ from Claret Wine Bar to find this hum­ble space, which looks out over the green­ery of KLCC park and looks in upon a lively open kitchen. Here, the ex­pe­ri­enced team of chefs turns out springy and smooth home­made pas­tas and crispy thin piz­zas along­side a se­lec­tion of hearty mains and homely desserts. The ever evolv­ing menu of­fers up some fas­ci­nat­ing dishes, rich and cre­ative vari­a­tions on tra­di­tional recipes: we rec­om­mend you try the pizza with roasted figs, tomato sauce, broc­coli, Roma toma­toes and feta, the potato gnoc­chi with braised chicken ragù and shaved cured foie gras, or the ba­nana and cof­fee tiramisu. Along­side th­ese mouth­wa­ter­ing dishes, there is a pol­ished wine list that takes in the best of north­ern Italy and Tus­cany from light­filled Prosecco to full-bod­ied Amarone della Valpo­li­cella. There is a wine for ev­ery dish and for ev­ery oc­ca­sion. For in­ti­mate din­ners and leisurely lunches, Strato is a choice of which Mama would ap­prove. Troika Sky Din­ing, Level 23A, Tower B, The Troika, 19 Per­siaran KLCC, KL (03 2162 0886 / www.troikasky­din­ing.com).
