Marini’s on 57, the sky-high bar, restaurant and lounge, have launched their new menu, drawing inspiration from the seasons of the year and using the best techniques and ingredients to showcase the best of springtime.
With a culinary philosophy that focuses on ‘Italian contemporary dining with a twist in innovative methods’, Marini’s is among the frontrunners in KL’s flourishing gourmet scene.
Bresaola: A house-made dry-aged Wagyu ‘Punta D’Anca’ served with pink salt, Arugula and Pecorino Foam
Winner of 13 Festival Awards at the 2014 Malaysia International Gourmet Festival, including Most Outstanding Dining Experience, Marini’s is renowned for more than just its food. Sitting 57 storeys above the bustling streets of KLCC and adjacent to the world-famous Petronas Twin Towers, it offers cuisine complemented with views unmatched anywhere in the city.
While soaking in the city from high above, guests can enjoy the 11 courses on the Spring menu which include Tempura-style zucchini flowers with ricotta and spinach, Apulia prawns, Norwegian scallops, guinea fowl and many choices of desserts.
These new offerings fit alongside their usual a la carte Tradition menu, which are said to use ‘traditional ingredients and methods of preparation to bring back the old Italian charm’.
Insalata Stagionale: Seasonal salad with a choice of 12 dressings
Among the highlights of the luxury fare is the Bresaola, a house-made dry-aged Wagyu beef, which is as aesthetically-pleasing as it is mouth-watering. The beautifully prepared dish is served with pink salt, arugula and pecorino foam, and will have you craving for more.
Interactive dining doesn’t get any better than one of the highlights of the Tradition menu, the Insalata Stagionale, a tomato granite salad with which diners can choose from four ‘perfumes’ and a choice of 12 pipettes of different dressings.
The most famous and most memorable dish on their menu is of course the enormous dessert, the Artigianale, where ‘dessert imitates art, right on your table’. As a giant empty glass slab is presented to the middle of the table, the chefs begin filling the space with a multitude of different flavours and treats to form this vast sharing platter. Among the sweets involved are strawberry marshmallows, lemon tarts, chocolate mousse cake, berry fruits, chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, macaroons and more, which is then topped off with an Easter-style golden chocolate egg.
The long-established menu has been a fixture on the KL dining scene and the new Spring additions to the kitchen are sure to have diners sending more rave reviews in the direction of Marini’s on 57.

Alongside its updated menu, Marini’s is also celebrating the launch of their new compilation album, Sunset Hours Vol. Two. The album was made available digitally the world over on platforms such as iTunes, Google Play, Juno, Spotify, etc. on June 8 and features an original track entitled Sunset Hours (Marini’s Remix) by world-renowned DJs Chris Coco and Steve Miller, known as Afterlife.
Modesto Marini, owner of the Marini Group, said, “I am proud of this album especially compiled by Chris Coco and Afterlife, two legendary DJs in their own right and is a great follow up to last year’s Volume One. I’m confident that Volume Two will be another jewel in our crown.”
