City Guide: Rome
A modern ode to Roman cuisine from one of Italy's most talked about chefs.
Unassumingly tucked down one of Trastevere’s evocative cobblestoned streets, the modern dining room of Glass Hostaria provides an exciting contrast in one of the oldest areas of Rome. Michelin-starred chef Cristina Bowerman’s contemporary menu twists traditional classics while making the most of seasonal produce. Bowerman’s stye is unmistakeable. Considered a rock star chef with an edge, most recently sporting pink cropped hair, she’s constantly channeling her creativity onto the plate. Her experimental combinations stem from her continent-spanning career (born in Puglia and introduced to contemporary cuisine under Puerto Rican chef Egil Valentin) with dishes such as beef tartare with capers and wasabi, ravioli stuffed with foie gras, amaretto and apple, and lamb with sumac, stilton and fennel pollen.
The excellent wine list and flawless service completes one of Rome’s most interesting high-level dining experiences. Glass Hostaria is perfect for a celebratory or splurge night for those interested in sampling new-Italian cuisine prepared by one of Rome’s most talked about chefs.
