The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain Hotel & Spa Allows Guests to Enjoy Italian Charm and Flavours in Bahrain

MANAMA, BAHRAIN -- (Marketwired) -- Apr 27, 2015 -- The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain has welcomed two Michelin starred Chef Oliver Glowig as consulting chef at its signature restaurant Primavera. The German-born maestro, who has been making waves in his adopted home of Italy, was brought in to give Primavera menu a facelift. The Italian restaurant is glossy with its new Trattoria Moderna concept.

But rather than taking the hyper chic route, Glowig has infused his vision of unassuming, yet irresistible cuisine. Take the pesto linguine -- a pure Italian tradition served on your plate. Pasta cooked to the definition of al dente, tossed into a freshly blended emulsion of basil, cheese, olive oil and pine nuts. Comfort food that can come only when the cooking is honest and unpretentious.

Part of the charm of this restaurant is the mix of what is familiar and what excites. The tomato risotto with buratta and anchovies caresses the tongue with creaminess then tickles it with the brine of fish. Yet the dish pales in comparison with an innovative lemon risotto with raw seafood. Cold, unadorned and virtually unseasoned, the seafood draws its flavour when combined with the warm tangy rice, taking on a ceviche-like quality.

In many ways Primavera adheres to the very essence of its name -- a sense of renewal and beginning, with food that is fresh and bright. The restaurant has chosen a line of whimsical, beautifully hand-painted ceramics of the Amalfi coast to flaunt off its cooking. The bold colours and animal motifs of Solimene pottery frame the rustic cooking of this modern trattoria and make such a statement that it's a running conversation topic throughout the meal.

But the dishes are far from the only things that catch the eye at the landmark restaurant. Italian for "Spring," Primavera will entice diners with an inspiring décor which evokes an evergreen garden of freshness and simplicity -- the perfect setting for the irresistibly delicious food. The walls lend a touch of drama to the innate simplicity of the space with a silver embossed representation of Boticelli's Primavera. Allusions to the iconic painting -- featuring a beautiful Venus surrounded by eight divine figures -- can be seen throughout the Bahrain restaurant from gold carvings of the spring constellation through to the moss in the private dining room that is evocative of the green gardens of the painting. Complemented by a terrace overlooking the beautiful resort and Gulf Sea, Primavera provides a natural backdrop for Glowig to demonstrate his creative approach to Italian cuisine.

In addition to the restaurant's cuisine, wine connoisseurs will delight in Primavera's bottle collection emphasizing Italian vintages selected especially to complement the menu. The grape list features options by the glass, or by the bottle. While Primavera's wine selection places special emphasis on presenting a broad and deep range from Italy, it also includes an extensive selection of wines from the rest of the world.

Rounding off the traditional experience, Ritz-Carlton's legendary service is led by a pre-dominantly Italian team, bringing to life the Trattoria Moderna experience, where guests are completely immersed in Italian charm and flavours. Beatrice Manno, Restaurant Manager describes Primavera as a "Little Italy, where pure traditional Italian food is interpreted by true Italian cooks, paired with mostly Italian vintages, by Italian Ladies and Gentlemen."

As of now, there will be no travel requirements needed, as food enthusiasts of Bahrain enjoy their own Little Italy and the unparalleled cuisine of Chef Oliver Glowig. Described by the Michelin guide as "one of the best interpreters of Italian cuisine", Chef Glowig's creative menu will tantalise the tastebuds with a slice of Italy.
