Contemporary Twist to Festive Italian Flavors at il Cielo
Set your year-end celebrations on the rooftop with the scenic city skyline at il Cielo as Italian Chef Omar Gabriele Bernardi introduces several interesting infusions of uncommon pairings of flavors and ingredients to traditional dishes for a unique twist to the Italian festive dining experience.

On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, Chef Bernardi proffers the antipasti of the lipsmacking Red Prawns on the Rock with Oranges & Smoked Eel cooked to tender perfection followed by the delightful Truffle & Saffron Tortellini of which both star ingredients surprisingly make a good pair despite their strong, distinctive flavors. For the main courses, Chef Bernardi prepares the traditional salted cod of Roasted Baccalà Fillet and serves the firm, chewy fish with polenta and some hint of Bagna Càuda. This is followed by the festive Guinea Fowl served with chestnuts and foie gras.

On New Year’s Eve night, Chef Bernardi introduces an unconventional pairing of Veal Osso Bucco with Sea Urchin to its ravioli dish and later treats the palates with highlights featuring the sumptuous Turbot served with Carabinero Prawns as well as the gorgeous, flavorful Black Angus Brisket served with Truffle & Barolo Sauce.
