Panoramic Views of Ancient Rome: Circus Restaurant at Hotel Fortyseven

May 11, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Hotel Fortyseven, Rome

You can't beat this setting in the Eternal City. Just across from the Temple of Vesta inside the Roman Forum, Hotel Fortyseven combines the best of old and new; in the heart of the ancient city, the hotel celebrates recent Italian art, as each of the hotel's five floors is dedicated to a different 20th-century artist (Mastroianni, Greco, Modigliani, Quagliata and Guccione). In this sleek space, you can enjoy heart-stopping views of the 2,000-year-old city from the rooftop Circus Restaurant. Recently remodeled, the restaurant is arguably the best place in the city for an aperitif at sunset. There's a Sunday brunch, to boot. You can check out photos here. Here's a sampling from the chef's new Mediterranean menu:

Starters

Parma ham with green apple and raspberries sauce

Smocked beef angus with rocket salad, aged Parmesan cheese and balsamic vinegar reduction

Squid salad with lime and crunchy vegetables, tuna bottarga and caper flowers

Main dishes

Home made tagliatelle with lobster sauce, Liguria olives and brised eggplant

Trofiette durum wheat pasta with basil pesto, pistacchio nuts and swordfish

Rack of lamb in crust herbs and braised spinach

Grilled salmon steak in a red Chianti wine sauce
