Bar And Restaurant Relocations: Cicchetti Di Zenzero, JungleBird, And Nobu KL
1/3 Cicchetti Di Zenzero
Associated with celebrity couple Kavita Sidhu and Roberto Guiati, who built the Zenzero Group from the bottom up, Zenzero Restaurant & Wine Bar (previously Cicchetti di Zenzero) has moved from St Mary Place to Amplewest Tower—just across the street.
According to the owners: "We will be introducing a brand-new menu, together with our all-time classics of authentic Italian dishes paired with a cosy ambiance and an al fresco dining experience. (One has the) option to dine indoors or outdoors with a beautiful canopy."
Amplewest Tower, 6, Jalan Puncak, Kuala Lumpur
Open since November 19, 2020. Call +603-2022-2899 to make reservations
An homage to Malaysia's own JungleBird (read an excellent investigative piece on the cocktail and its origins at Thirst Mag), KL's favourite 'Rumah Rum' is moving to a "lighter, breezier space" in Bukit Damansara.
Continue to pair rum-based tipples with comfort food at the award-winning bar founded by three industry veterans, Lolita Goh, Divyesh Chauhan and Joshua Ivanovic.

3/3 Nobu Kuala Lumpur
It's just a matter of weeks before Nobu Kuala Lumpur, which first burst onto the scene in 2014, switches its sky-high views for something else.
"After a long deliberation, we have decided to upgrade and elevate our guests' dining experience through new features at a landmark destination with global appeal, the Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur," announced general manager Gopi Kanala.
While Nobu Matsuhisa's miso-marinated black cod and other cult dishes will still be available after the move, no longer will diners be 'pressed up' against the Petronas Twin Towers. Fans and friends of the restaurant are encouraged to experience its exceptional views at Menara 3 KLCC one last time before 2020 wraps up.
