The newly opened Paragon 700 Boutique Hotel & Spa, Puglia, Italy is delighted to offer guests and locals alike exquisite cuisine at the hotel's Restaurant 700 overseen by head chef, Giovanni Cerroni - a true treat for newlywed foodies!
What better start to married life than organising a honeymoon to reflect your shared passion for food, and where better than Italy to really indulge in culinary experiences - all in the name of love!
The former apprentice of Francesco Bracali, Terry Giacomello, Italo Bassi and with significant experience at Mugaritz under Andoni Luis Aduriz, Cerroni has developed a quintessentially Mediterranean menu, which celebrates outstanding local ingredients and famed Italian cuisine while fusing flavours discovered during his years spent working around the world. Open to guests and locals alike, Restaurant 700 offers a modern and creative fine dining menu uniquely coupled with charming service in an intimate and laidback atmosphere.
The cuisine is complimented by the finest local vintages from the hotel's impressive wine cellar, where private wine tastings can also be arranged with the resident sommelier. Exuding culinary promise, the centuries-old vaulted stone room opens onto the traditional oil mill, now transformed into a convivial table and state-of-the-art kitchen. Beyond the terrace is the swimming pool and garden with its aromatic herbs and orange grove, where guests can enjoy breakfast and dinner on warm summer evenings.
Guests can also enjoy a typical aperitivo at the hotel's Bar 700 and the lounge, a beautiful space made especially unique by its 8.5-meter-long stone counter clad in antique Argentinian tin-plates. Here, the muted colours along with local wines, innovative cocktails and a wide collection of enticing spirits provide instant relaxation and an easy place to while away the hours with friends and family. Soft interiors and delicious small bites complete the setting for an evening of enjoyment by the fireplace.
