This place is not your ordinary Omakase destination. Omakase restaurants have always been associated with a Japanese concept, but 71st offers a brand new experience instead. Its elegant and luxurious interiors will make you feel as if you are eating in one of the fine dining restaurants in Manhattan. It has both outdoor and indoor seating areas, as well as VIP private rooms that are perfect for business meetings, and open kitchen area where you can experience having your Omakase meal while seeing the chef cook the dishes for you exclusively.
Besides their interiors, 71st also offers western and European dishes as an ala carte option, in addition to their Omakase set menu. If you are looking for a lighter meal, we would suggest you try out their Say Cheeseeee! which is a ravioli filled with ready-to-explode mascarpone cheese, parmesan foam, and a generous amount of cheese fondue, or their Ocean Meet Land which is a wave of Norwegian salmon, earthy purple potato, braised vegetables, beurre blanc sauce, and an ocean thyme foam. However, if you would like to get the best experience, we recommend you to try out their Omakase set menu instead, which consists of 13 dishes, including appetizer and dessert. Make sure to reserve your tables maximum a day before visiting though, because they don’t serve Omakase for unreserved guests.

Being part of the Union Group, Bistecca is a premium steakhouse in Kebayoran Baru that is famous for both its steak’s quality as well as it’s luxurious, Instagram-able place. The place has a classic and vintage vibe, as it is decorated with chandelier lamps and wooden furniture. It also has a vintage bar area that is the same as the ones you usually see in classical European movies, making it the perfect destination for a romantic date night or an important occasion.
As for the food, we would recommend you to order their Steak Tenderloin Australian Black Angus, as the meat is juicy and has a thick texture that melts in your mouth. We also recommend you order their side dishes such as fries and truffle mac and cheese that goes well with this steak. However, if you would like to try out their non-steak menu, we would recommend you order their Florentine Butter Chicken, which is served in a hotplate. The meat has a crispy texture on the outside, and yet the inside is very juicy and tender. It also smells good! Yum!
