Sureño is the Mediterranean restaurant located on the lower ground level of The Opposite House—an intriguing urban hotel in the cosmopolitan district of Sanlitun. The warm interiors boast an open kitchen and a wood fired oven that evoke the casual style of the Mediterranean, where guests can also watch the live action while they dine. The menus draw on the freshest ingredients of Southern Europe and are updated quarterly at the turn of seasons.
Through the à la carte and tasting menus, the restaurant focuses on seafood, hand made pastas, salads, and tapas, as well as choice cuts of imported meat prepared in the wood fired oven. The style is rustic and typical of the dishes one would expect in Spain, Greece, Southern France and Italy, with an inspiring wine selection for wine pairings.
Sureño is headed by Italian Chef de Cuisine, Marino D’Antonio, who trained in France, London and Italy. He has run several independent establishments as well as the restaurant in Shangri-la in Guangzhou, China.
Sureño was awarded Best Service and Best New Restaurant 2009 by Time Out (Beijing) at their annual awards.
