Guccio, representing the surname – and hence, the origins of Chef Marco - will offer Executive Chef Marco Guccio’s culinary philosophy: an Italian fine dining cuisine journey, from a home-made, hearty cuisine to a global fine dining success.
While using top ingredients is not unique per se, Marco’s signature cooking style is: in his cuisine, the core ingredient becomes the main actor in the opera. Each dish has one ingredient at the center of the flavor experience. While the presentations are at times a contrast of colorful and complex textures, Marco’s dishes create a balance of supporting flavors, similar to how supporting artists dance in harmony, in the background of the leading act.
This philosophy is pushed to its boundaries at Guccio, with critics sometimes claiming that a blindfolded customer would always be able to recognize the chief ingredients in the dish she is eating. This style won chef Marco a Bib Gourmand from the prestigious Michelin Star Guide for two years in a row, in 2016 and 2017.
Chef Marco welcomes you to his restaurant. Its décor is, once again, balanced and aims to be comfortable, while remaining in the background. At Guccio, customers will be at the center of the experience, with the colors and design elements to balance the surroundings.
In the background of Marco’s main culinary signature style, Guccio will further differentiate itself by taking its diners onto a seasonal journey across the various regions of Italy, their fertile lands and their precious seas. At regular intervals, aligned with the four seasons of Europe, chef Marco will explore regional ingredients and recipes associated to each season, a unique opportunity to visit Italy even when 10,000 km away from it.
Marco’s creation will be paired by the best Italian wine labels available. As for the culinary ingredients, Guccio will not focus so much on education about new ingredients or unknow brands, but on outright enjoyment of the best that Italy has to offer.

The good people of Selfish Gene Café (SGC) are proud to announce the opening of Selfish Gene Patisserie (SGP). Located on level 2 above the café at 40 Craig Road, SGP is a patisserie with a difference – they serve plated desserts focusing on familiar flavours with modern presentation.
During the conceptualisation of SGP, their challenge was to present themselves in a new improved concept, but yet to retain their core culinary philosophy of homemade, quality food that appeals not only to the palate but also to a sense of familiarity. Finally, they decided to develop their core strength in making things from scratch and move their existing pastry preparation upstairs. In doing so, everything seemed to fall into place and SGP was born. SGP will operate independently from SGC as the concept and style of service differs. SGP will offer table service and present more interaction between the patisserie and customer.
After several months of testing and recipe development, SGP is proud to present seven different plated desserts. The desserts menu is ordered in increasing intensity of flavour starting with the light & fruity and leading to the more intense & robust ones. Some of the mentionable desserts include a Japanese inspired Soya which harmonises soya ingredients with tofu cheesecake, red beans, homemade mochi, red miso caramel and green tea ice-iream. There is also the Ginger featuring warm candied ginger pudding topped with a luscious sticky toffee and accompanied caramel ice-cream. All cakes and ice-creams/sorbets are made in-house.
SGP will serve as an event space for private/corporate events, meetings and product launches. In addition, they hope to be able to do pop-up dinners with guest chefs in the near future. And so, selfish Gene continues to evolve.
