The Legendary Sunday Brunch at Alto

Weekends in Jakarta just got a whole lot better. Alto Restaurant & Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta is once again hosting its legendary Sunday Brunch. Sweeping views of Jakarta provide the backdrop for this culinary extravaganza, inviting families and friends to reclaim their favourite weekend experience once again.

We are excited for guests to return to our iconic Italian rooftop restaurant,” says General Manager Simon Barnett. “While continuing to ensure the highest standards of safety and hygiene through our global Lead with Care program, we felt it was the right time to bring this beloved Four Seasons experience back to the city.”

For the all-new menu, Executive Chef Marco Violano has drawn inspiration from the home-style family brunches of his childhood in Italy. “I want to bring the warmth, the laughter, the romance of la dolce vita back to Jakarta,” he says with a smile. “Alto’s essence has always been delicious Italian food, made simply but with the highest-quality ingredients, and served in a chic and relaxed atmosphere.”

The new Sunday Brunch embraces this idea whole-heartedly, elevating authentic recipes with fine ingredients imported directly from Italy. The fabulous buffet includes a gourmet salad station and a seafood bar featuring fresh-caught mussels, prawns, shrimp, baby lobster, blue crab, and mignonettes.

The highlight of the afternoon is definitely the magnificent selection of Italian antipasti, cold cuts and fine European cheeses. Savour such regional delicacies as salami from Milan and Rome, along with specialties such as salmon gravlax, Vitello tonnato (veal with tuna sauce) and Panzanella (Tuscan tomato salad). Also on the menu: all-time crowd favourites such as Alto’s authentic pizzas and freshly baked quiches.

Meat lovers are sure to enjoy the live carving stations, with Javanese peppercorn-encrusted US prime ribs and leg of lamb with aromatic herbs. Each table can also share unlimited pass-around pasta, soup and the Chef’s signature salmon papillote (salmon cooked on parchment with asparagus and lemon butter sauce).

No Sunday Brunch can be complete without a selection of delectable desserts. Executive Pastry Chef Lorenzo Sollecito has added spectacular new creations to the sumptuous spread, including the Boston bombolone and mango egg-tart danish. Guests can also savour beloved classics like the Alto tiramisu, vanilla panna cotta and Caprese chocolate cake.
