U:Ponte Vecchio

U:Ponte Vecchio

The new Ponte Vecchio restaurant fuses Itarian cooking in a Japanese-style where customers dine with chop sticks. The“U”-shaped counter encourages conversation. The interiors, decorated in black and granite, are accented with silver and red mosaic tiles. It is a visually mysterious space where mirrors and glass reflect hanging lights.
