“We are delighted to welcome Fabio Trabocchi to JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa and are excited to lead our guests through a dynamic culinary journey with the unveiling of Fiola at Dopolavoro Venezia,” said Mitzi Gaskins, vice president & global brand leader, JW Marriott. “Fiola at Dopolavoro Venezia will feature a vibrant menu thoughtfully curated by Trabocchi, with cuisines deeply rooted in traditional flavors from Italy and the Adriatic.”
Nestled inside JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa, the city’s premier hotel that enjoys a splendid location on Venice’s private island, Isola delle Rose, Fiola at Dopolavoro Venezia will incorporate culinary highlights from the celebrated menu of Trabocchi’s existing Michelin-starred restaurant, Fiola DC.
Guests can anticipate dishes that combine seasonal ingredients locally sourced from Venice’s famous, centuries-old Rialto Market, the Adriatic Sea, as well as vegetables and exclusive olive oil from the private island’s own vegetable garden and olive grove.
The menu will change daily and provide a nostalgic twist on traditional Venetian cuisine prepared with a modern presentation and standout dishes such as Fiola Lobster Ravioli, Bassano White Asparagus and Caviar, Foie Gras alla Veneziana, Moeche col pien (soft-shell crabs from the Venetian lagoon), Venetian Style Tuna Crudo (a daily-changing crudo option, finished tableside), and Vanilla Fried Pastry Cream and Corbezzolo Honey.
Guests can also enjoy Trabocchi’s modern take on the classic Venetian cicchetti (local bites) for the Aperitivo.
“The debut of Fiola at Dopolavoro Venezia is a significant milestone as it marks Fiola’s expansion internationally in the most magical city I know, as well as a personal homecoming as I announce my return to Italy after so many years abroad,” said Fabio Trabocchi, Chef and Restaurateur. “We look forward to another exciting chapter for Fiola and are eager to offer the discerning guests at JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa signature dishes that incorporate local Venetian flare. Our menu was inspired by the city’s romantic atmosphere and we are thrilled to open the doors to our newest location.”
Fabio Trabocchi, who participated in the inaugural Venice Food & Wine Festival at JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa in May 2018 and will be joining the soon to be announced festival again in 2019, manages an impressive portfolio of iconic restaurants in the United States with his wife and business partner, Maria Font Trabocchi, including: Fiola DC, Fiola Miami, Fiola Mare, Sfoglina Pasta House, and Del Mar. The Trabocchis’ growing restaurant group has received numerous accolades including a Michelin star at Fiola DC, the group’s fine-dining flagship restaurant.
Both Fabio and Maria Trabocchi stand behind their commitment to providing guests with a world-class dining experience while making them feel at home the moment they walk into each of their restaurants.
