Business lunch in Rome, now there is EMME for smartworking and typical cuisine

ROME – Combining work, conviviality, smartworking, business and excellent cuisine is now possible:  Emme Restaurant  becomes the Smartplace in the heart of the capital for a typical and useful business lunch in Rome. The lounge on Via Margutta will offer smartworking hospitality to businessmen on business trips to the capital. The lunch proposal has been renewed with first courses and "treats" that draw on tradition together with salads, vegetables and energy and refreshing drinks based on fruits and vegetables for those who love a healthy lifestyle.

Not only a gourmet restaurant perfect for a business lunch in Rome, therefore, but also the most beautiful digital office available to those traveling in the capital. Anyone who is in Rome for business or leisure and needs a workstation equipped with Wi-Fi connection in a relaxing and unique environment in the heart of the Trident will be able to sit in the lounges of Emme Restaurant or in the suggestive "Secret Garden" inside of the restaurant located in the Boutique Hotel “Margutta 19”

In the intermediate hours between breakfast and lunch and in the afternoon after lunch until dinner time, Emme will make its spaces with Smart workstations available to its guests to allow those who need it to be connected and to use those hours for make the most of the day spent away, perhaps even organizing work meetings. You will find a quiet and unique environment welcoming you, with an intimate and evocative outdoor area in Via Margutta, in the street dedicated to art and cinema, at the foot of Villa Borghese, a stone's throw from Piazza di Spagna and Piazza del Popolo. Smart guests will also be able to take a break while sipping a coffee or one of the selected teas or even the fresh, vitamin-rich and dietary juices and smoothies based on fruit and vegetables, munching on the sweet and savory snacks of the house, snacks with an Italian and international flavor . Alongside this, of course, Emme offers a renewed and tasty proposal for lunch with first courses and "treats" that draw on tradition, together with white and red meats from Lazio farms cooked in a light and tasty way, salads, vegetables and drinks energetic and refreshing based on fruits and vegetables for those who love a healthy lifestyle. The dinner menu is innovative and gourmet but respects tradition, always linked to seasonality and short supply chain raw materials.

“EMME – explains Alberto Moncada – presents itself as the restaurant in which the Italian and foreign public enters a welcoming lounge that opens up a secret garden to the gaze, within an exclusive setting on the slopes of Villa Borghese to celebrate the ritual of lunch or dinner or for an aperitif while feeling absolutely at home. To our Roman and international customers – adds Moncada – and also to those who are in Rome for work, we want the experience of offering the experience of a pleasant and young restaurant in a relaxing atmosphere, also to spend a few hours of smart work , in a place like via Margutta that everyone loves as if it were a piece of their own history. A fascinating and exciting challenge."

Therefore Emme Restaurant is synonymous with innovation both for catering and for hospitality tout court thanks to the history of the Moncada family, owners of the Boutique Hotel "Margutta 19" and Emme Restaurant. Alberto Moncada, with great talent expressed in the world of hospitality, has decided to launch himself into the new venture of opening a restaurant with an innovative vision. The young Giovanni Moncada, Alberto's son, will act alongside the patron. As a consultant to the property, Giovanni Moncada will make available all his expertise (he has a degree in Business administration and Global hospitality management from the prestigious School of "Les Roches", in Switzerland) and his profound knowledge of international catering gained over more than six years of work experience in starred restaurants around the world. Creative ability and cultural sensitivity that Giovanni Moncada instills in Emme's culinary philosophy and hospitality style.

The Brigade is led by chef Daniele Ladaga and makes use of the "sweet" wisdom of pastry chef Maria Chiara Serges. EMME's culinary offering is rigorously attentive to the quality of the raw materials, draws on the best of short-chain agri-food production, and enhances the aromas and flavors of seasonality. From this philosophy two distinct selections are born for lunch and dinner which allow gourmets to live a unique and exclusive experience of taste, an intense emotion that begins by walking along Via Margutta, enthralled and with eyes upwards, and which is completed at the table.

The wine list proposed by EMME Restaurant also offers an accurate and balanced choice of labels that will satisfy every type of palate for a perfect business lunch in Rome. EMME's idea is to carry out research by including in the list the best bottles of historic producers from the various Italian wineries who have worked in recent years to perpetuate their winemaking tradition. The programs also include the organization of evenings dedicated to excellent products and wines presented by producing companies to create interesting opportunities for dialogue between different food and wine cultures.

Chef Daniele Ladaga
His great passion since childhood pushed him to work in restaurants near his home, after completing his studies he graduated from the Ipssar Artusi hotel institute in Rome.

For the previous three years he managed the Madeleine restaurant brigade.
