‘Dolce vita’ at One Bar this summer

(Hong Kong, 14 August, 2008) – If indulging in an authentic Italian cuisine best


represents the Italian saying ‘dolce vita’, One Bar has the answer to ‘living a good life’
this summer. Guest chef Marco Furlan is presenting a choice of either three-course or a
five-course Italian set dinner menus, available from Monday to Friday from now on until
this September.

Presented by our Italian guest chef, Marco Furlan from Venice, Italy, he is set out to
engage diners to embark on an authentic Italian gastronomic journey at One Bar
throughout August and September. Chef Furlan effortlessly performs magic with his
basic cooking principle. He added: “The key to Italian cuisine is the freshness of the
ingredients. The produce and ingredients that I use are freshly imported from different
regions of Italy including Veneto where I am from, Puglia and Sicily in the south of Italy.
We use fresh, natural and original flavour with our products so our dishes always carry
the most authentic and best flavors. My cooking style is natural, simple, pure and light.”

Having been a guest chef of prestigious Italian restaurants around the world, Chef
Furlan has come to Hong Kong recently and joined One Bar, which is owned and run by
Cafe Deco Group, as a guest chef in August and September. Prior to joining One Bar,
he was a guest chef with the Habitat restaurant.

The 3-course dinner and the 5-course dinner are available at One Bar from Monday to
Friday, 6pm-930pm. Price per the 3-course dinner is HKD298, and HKD498 per the five-
course dinner. All the prices are subject to 10% service charge.
