HASSLER ROMA ANNOUNCES NEW PACKAGE AND TASTING MENU TO CELEBRATE THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF ITS ROOFTOP RESTAURANT
The Hassler Roma
's celebrated rooftop restaurant, Imàgo
, is ringing in its 10th anniversary this year with a redesign, a special anniversary tasting menu and a three-night package. In the 1950s and 1960s, Imàgo
was known as the Roof Garden Restaurant, which was the first-ever rooftop panoramic restaurant to open in a classic 'grand hotel' in Rome. As the first restaurant built on the top floor of a hotel, it soon gained enormous prestige around the world and was frequented by the likes of Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Presidents John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon, Igor Stravinsky and Federico Fellini. Today, Imàgo
reinterprets regional Italian cuisine under the guidance of Executive Chef Francesco Apreda and offers stunning views of Rome.
To celebrate its 10th year, Imàgo recently unveiled a redesign after a one-month closure, overseen by Owner and General Manager Roberto E. Wirth as well as Astrid Schiller Wirth, along with Executive Chef Francesco Apreda in collaboration with architect Andrea Marini. The restyled restaurant features updated furnishings, a new lighting system to better highlight the food's presentation, and an open-style wine cellar. As Imàgo is a fixture in the Eternal City, a place where both locals and international guests go to enjoy the Michelin-starred cuisine, these new developments ensure the restaurant's top position in the Rome dining scene.
For this occasion, the Hassler has also introduced a new "10 Years of Imàgo"
accommodation package, including the following:
- Three nights in a Double Deluxe room (upgrade to Double Grand Deluxe room upon availability), including daily buffet breakfast
- Special anniversary tasting menu for two at Imàgo on the second night of the stay
- Sensory massage for two people at the Amorvero SPA
Furthermore, Chef Apreda has created a special menu featuring ten of the restaurant's best signature dishes that have greatly evolved over the past decade and have been favorites of both the guests and chef alike. This tasting menu, featuring these ten reinvented dishes, includes: Foie Gras and Scones (2015); Breaded Sea Scallops, Shiitake Mushrooms and Black Truffle (2007); Octopus, Seaweed and Roots (2016); Parmesan Cappellotti Pasta "Double Umami" (2010), Risotto with "Cacio" Cheese, Pepper and Sesame (2012); Capellini with Garlic, Olive Oil, Chili Pepper and Smoked Eel (2008); Black Cod & Purple Vegetables (2009); Tandoori-Style Duck (2014); Neapolitan Sfogliatella "Samosa" (2011);
and Sweet Buffalo Mozzarella (2013). The menu is priced at €160 (approx. $173) per person.
