Conrad Seoul Appoints Davide Cardellini as New Head Chef of Atrio
Introducing Davide Cardellini, a native Italian chef with over 10 years of culinary experience in luxury hotels and a 2-star Michelin restaurant
SEOUL, South Korea - Conrad Seoul has announced the appointment of Davide Cardellini as the new head chef of the hotel's Atrio, Italian restaurant.
Cardellini comes to Conrad Seoul from Hotel Rixos Khadisha Shymkent, a 5-star-luxury hotel in Kazakhstan, where he served as a sous chef prior to his arrival in Seoul.
Chef Cardellini, a native of Italy, has built his culinary career through assignments at a number of Italian luxury hotels and restaurants. Since he graduated from I.P.S.S.A.R.C.T. in Senigallia, Italy, he has become very confident in his repertoire of authentic Italian dishes thanks to his work experience in traditional Italian restaurants including Aldrovandi Villa Borghese, the 2-star Michelin fine dining restaurant inside one of The Leading Hotels of the World, in Rome, Italy.
Cardellini excels at delivering the authentic tastes of the Italian mainland using the various ingredients that have inspired Italian cuisine, such as Mountain cheese and salami. He is a renowned expert in the exploration and study of ingredients, which he pursues with a passion. Through these efforts, his dishes distinguish themselves even from other Italian cuisine, through their robust flavors and textures.
Chef Cardellini expressed his sentiments about his new position, saying, "I am so excited to be in such a dynamic city as Seoul, and be in charge of Atrio, which is already one of the city's signature Italian restaurants." "I will do my best to deliver some of my most creative specialties, featuring new and unique ingredients, building on our already popular base of authentic Italian cuisine."
Atrio, located on the 2nd floor of Conrad Seoul, is an iconic, casual Italian restaurant featuring both traditional and creative recipes. All food is prepared in Atrio's open kitchen, enhancing the dining experience through the senses of sight and smell. The Italian restaurant boasts a 28m high-ceiling adorned with designer lighting and a unique interior design. The venue offers two private dining rooms, with comfortable chairs and a chandelier giving a feeling of warmth, perfect for business meetings or family gatherings in an exclusive, private atmosphere.
