AN ELEVATED EXPERIENCE
Heading to Kuala Lumpur? The brand- new Four Seasons Hotel is a must- visit for its inspired fine dining and creative cocktails.
FOUR SEASONS HOTEL KUALA LUMPUR REFLECTS THE MULTICULTURAL DIVERSITY OF MALAYSIA’S CAPITAL, WHILE OFFERING A VALUABLE ADDITION TO ITS VIBRANT DINING AND ENTERTAINMENT SCENE.
Perched atop a sleek 65- story skyscraper adjacent to the Petronas Towers – and a boon for business and leisure travelers looking to stay in the heart of the action – the Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur reflects the dynamism and multicultural diversity of Malaysia’s capital, while offering a valuable addition to its vibrant dining and entertainment scene.
The hotel’s six restaurants and lounges are overseen by executive chef Junious Dickerson, a 30- year veteran of the hospitality industry who has spent half of his career in Southeast Asia. Each venue has been imbued with the rich traditions of Malaysia alongside the character of Kuala Lumpur itself – in an effort to foster a deeper connection to the place and its people. “Malaysia has some of the finest ingredients and unique traditions,” Dickerson says. “And equally as impressive is the incredible amount of local farmers and purveyors, all of which have influenced our menus and will be integral in delivering outstanding culinary experiences.”
Dickerson has also assembled an experienced team of international chefs and mixologists to impart the global flair and sophistication that the Four Seasons brand is known for. Previously the executive Chinese chef at The St. Regis Hotel Singapore, acclaimed chef Jimmy Wong has been recruited to head up Yun House, which takes its name from the Cantonese word for “garden” thanks to its position overlooking KLCC Park. The Hong Kong– born chef will dish up new takes on traditional ingredients and recipes, celebrating his Cantonese heritage in a surprising contemporary style.
Over at Bar Trigona, the signature bar named after Malaysia’s native trigona bee, head bartender Ashish Sharma has joined from Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai, which won an award from Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2017 for its overall beverage program. Sharma will be putting the spotlight on local and sustainable ingredients with a creative new spin on classic cocktails inspired by Malaysian flora.
Elsewhere on the property, that same sense of craftsmanship and artistry is also apparent at bespoke patisserie Decadent by Four Seasons, a café that offers confections, cakes, and seasonal desserts, many of them created with Malaysianinspired ingredients. Another highlight? The show kitchen at theater- inspired allday dining venue Curate, where guests can watch as chefs hand- pull fresh noodles with a flourish, make rumali roti flatbread from scratch, and toss handmade pizzas mere meters from their tables. It’s a full sensory experience that’s sure to delight first- time guests and repeat visitors alike.
