The place is uniquely decorated with a combination of modern design and traditional Japanese elements such as large wooden columns, rice paper lamps and drawings of koi carp. Both small and large groups will soon enjoy an exclusive all you can dine concept here.

This Japanese hotspot in Zeist will also work with robots that will support their staff. The fact that the robots are really not going to replace the employees is apparent from the advertisement on their website in which they are looking for employees. We are curious about the robots!

Tavolino’s summer terrace with ITALICUS | Capri by the river in London

20-7-2021

  • ITALICUS served at the summer terrace of Tavolino
  • Cocktail met ITALICUS - summer terrace of Tavolino

This Thursday 22nd July, Tavolino, the Italian restaurant in the heart of London Bridge, will launch their summer terrace in partnership with award-winning modern Italian Aperitivo ITALICUS. The 100-seater terrace will be transformed into Capri by the river, with dishes and drinks inspired by the Italian coast.

Another example for a partnership to create a summer terrace, we spotted a couple of those summer terraces in London and Amsterdam as well, like pop-up Piazza by the Pier and café Bloesem! We wonder when we will see cocktails with this aperitivo ITALICUS Rosolio di Bergamotto at the terraces in the Netherlands. You can serve ITALICUS as a Spritz or a Negroni Bianco, or create your own cocktail with it. You have to visit the summer terrace Tavolino in London to try the The Alba Chiara blends ITALICUS cocktail or The Dolce Nuvola, sounds delicious to match their Amalfi lemon meringue!
