Set in the city’s newest hotel, the Best Western Premiere Dua Sentral, Grill 582 is the place to be for prime cuts of meat sitting alongside fresh seafood.
This new dining scene in the burgeoning business, finance and transport hub that is KL Sentral serves up the goods in a moody, modern ambience. But don’t let the idea of dimly lit interior, minimalistic design and polished tile and hardwood floors put you off as forbidding; far from it, the play of shadows is soothing to the eyes and adds a certain visual element to the pristinely presented dishes.
For that romantic meal, you can opt for the private dining room, a cozy nook framed on two sides by gorgeous shelves running up the side walls holding wine bottles and glittering glassware. The uniquely carved wooden chairs and delicately shaped chandelier overhead also lend a beautiful touch. But here the focus rightly is on the food, which is as wonderful on the palate as they are gorgeous on the plate. Whether you’re craving a soft-as-butter hunk of tenderloin, or a Norwegian Salmon so fresh you can taste the ocean, Grill 582 will deliver only the finest.
Its MIGF menu is also a play on meats and ocean delights, including confit of duck with apples and vanilla as a starter, and mains of ocean trout and grilled rump of lamb, with a mixed berry shooter in between to cleanse the palate. Those interested in pairing their meal with wine will also benefit from the chef’s recommendations, which include the Hemisferio Sauvignon Blanc from Chilean producer Miguel Torres.
