Tuckers Point rebrands golf club restaurant
What used to be the members-only Clubhouse Restaurant at Tuckers Point Golf Club is now called Sul Verde and is open to locals.
Rosewood Tuckers Point has rebranded the restaurant as an eatalian osteria (pronounced oh-stair-REE-a), which in Italy was originally a place serving wine and simple food.
Along with a new name, the restaurant has been given a new look and a new menu developed by the resorts executive chef, Guido Brambilla.
Sul Verde, which means on the green in Italian, has moved from serving the classic club cuisine of soups, salads and sandwiches, to dishing up rustic Italian favourites — everything from antipasti to traditional primi and secondi courses served family style.
Chef Brambilla, appointed the resorts executive chef in July, oversees all the resorts restaurants. He has more than 20 years experience in fine dining and joined Tuckers Point from Elbow Beach Hotel.
He says the revamped menu is a return to his Italian roots.
I was born in Milan, Italy and grew up with a family that instilled in me a passion for food and wine. I am extremely excited to return to my roots with this new eatalian osteria concept, Chef Brambilla said.
Items on Sul Verdes dinner menu include an antipasti buffet with everything from homemade pickles and focaccia, to a selection of cold cuts, salads and marinated vegetables.
Pasta selections include classics from carbonara to pesto that the restaurant says are ideal for sharing and main courses from traditional chicken cacciatore to veal Milanese. You can even simple spaghetti and meatballs. Sul Verde is also one of the first restaurants on the Island to offer gluten free and whole wheat pastas with any of their sauces.
Theres an extensive Italian wine list and their speciality homemade infused grappas.
Chef Guidos new concept is the perfect place to spend a relaxing evening together with family and friends while enjoying his delicious Italian cuisine, said Duncan Graham, managing director of Rosewood Tuckers Point. We are thrilled that the local community will also be able to experience Sul Verde.
With lunch starters and mains from $12 and $19 to dinner pastas and mains from $21 and $27, the resort is hoping to bring in more clientele.
Ever since Rosewood Hotels & Resorts started managing Tuckers Point, weve been working to attract local residents to the property, a hotel spokesperson said. From the special room rate for locals, Sense Spa and other dining options, opening Sul Verde to locals is just another way we are engaging more with the community.
Chef Brambilla has also been busy creating a new menu for The Point Restaurant called Point 360.
He says its a unique culinary experience that takes diners on an epicurean journey around the world: Ive been able to bring together the different cooking techniques and cuisines from my international travels to create the Point 360.
