Chef Fabrice Bruto is now the new executive chef of the Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara hotel. With his debut comes a new menu, which we will explore below.

Having already been across hospitality establishments around Europe, America, and Asia, Bruto was also the executive chef at The Langham, Shenzhen. As far as Nizza’s menu is concerned, it already shows a positive introduction of French-Meditteranean flavours.

The menu will follow a traditional French-Mediterranean cooking style, featuring many iconic dishes including tabbouleh pomegranate, butternut & carrot“Velouté”, roasted codfish, whole sea bass in sea salt rosemary crust, and beer marinated beef cheek.

We had a chance to sample some of the new French-Meditteranean dishes on the menu and suffice to say, it was worth the visit. The eggplant “Capunanita”, as well as the burrata mozzarella, made for some excellent starters, which only further cemented the notion that it was going to be a good evening ahead.

Other notable dishes to look out for in the menu includes its risotto cook in “Bisque” sauce, the potato gnocchi, as well as the Black Angus beef tartare, which we personally tried out. The last dish, in particular, was sublime with every bite. Of course, you’ll have to be comfortable with eating raw food to begin with.

You can choose to either dine indoors or by the alfresco area, which is where you will find the pool and bar as well. As the menu already complements what Nizza is all about, the cocktails it serves will knock it out of the park. A selection of fine wines is also available to go along with your meal.

There two other Asian restaurants in the hotel and it is up to Nizza to carry the mantle as being the speciality restaurant. With the introduction of Chef Bruto, you can expect great things to come from Nizza in Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara.
