Following an ambitious rebranding exercise, homegrown Italian restaurant and bar operators The Cicheti Group has transformed the 1,500 sqft of prime F&B space along South Beach Tower’s retail piazza that previously housed popular modern Australian restaurant Fynn's into Caffe Cicheti. This marks the third Cicheti concept to join the group’s cohort of beloved Italian outfits, which include rustic chic trattoria Cicheti (2013) in Kampong Glam and contemporary pasta bar Bar Cicheti (2018) off Keong Saik.
At this modern-day osteria, fresh, bright flavours found up and down the coasts of Italy are served up at their uncomplicated best. By delving further into these coastal traditions, where tastes are characterised by their lightness and simplicity using the freshest ingredients that embody life along the shores, chef co-owner Lim Yew Aun expands on his culinary affinity with Italy’s diverse foodscape beyond Venice and the broader Mediterranean that’s underpinned his heartfelt brand of cookery since the first Cicheti. Best enjoyed with sommelier-partner Ronald Kamiyama’s curation of quality, quaffable wines that are fun, juicy and approachable—and a special emphasis on non-alcoholic beverages for the discerning non-drinker. The setting, dreamed up by restaurateur Liling Ong and Amsterdam-based interior designer Simone KÃ¶nigshausen, reimagines Fynn’s foliage-filled aesthetic with a fresh coat of dark emerald paint, light tropical prints and charming, bistro-style patio seating, lending a new lease on life to an intimate space that now inspires dining both day and night.
“We had such a good run with Fynn’s and made so many amazing friends along the way. On the other hand, we’ve established such a delicious goodwill with the Cicheti brand, and finally found our way with wines when we opened Bar Cicheti last year. We created Caffe Cicheti not to take away from what Fynn’s has built, but to continue building its legacy as part of the Cicheti family,” explained Ong, who first set up Fynn’s together with her cousin Aun in 2016, three years after they opened the first Cicheti.
