Nothing tastes better than a meal made at home from the hands of our own family. Nonna Bona, a modern-authentic Italian steakhouse in South Jakarta, knows this all too well. The hearty dishes made from one’s own passed-down recipe recall that feeling of dining with our loved ones. This tradition is what keeps the dinner table at home alive, which is what Nonna Bona wants to preserve.
Preserving tradition in Nonna Bona’s way means taking traditions upscale, where the age of the good old days is eternalized for the days ahead. A nod to the Italian flag, bright red becomes wine burgundy, and vivid green becomes olive.
But preserving the old to contemporary doesn’t mean watering down the essence. An approach is painting Tuscan scapes and pasta using wine to add a different dimension to the two-color palette. But the wine paintings are not the only things that ornate the walls of Nonna Bona. What sends home, even more, is the framed nostalgic photography alongside the collage works that combine burgundy strokes and aged photographs, in the open walls and hallways of the steakhouse.
