Jakarta’s newest hot spot: Bluegrass Bar & Grill

The grass is always bluer. Brought to you by the same hip ownership team that gave us stylish Portico in Senayan City, this new place currently holds the unofficial ‘freshest restaurant in Jakarta’ title. Welcome to Bluegrass Bar & Grill.

Bluegrass Bar & Grill (Rasuna Epicentrum, Kuningan; 62-21/2994-1660), which has nothing to do with the blue grass of Kentucky or bluegrass music, but everything to do with Western comfort food and really excellent vibes.

Whether you hang out at their impossibly long stainless-steel bar, alfresco park benches next to the BBQ grill or at a regular table inside, this place has just enough style without a hint of stuffiness. Food-wise, you can’t go wrong really, but one thing that I’d highly recommend is the Steak Salad, which comes with generous portions of grilled cubes of bleu cheese atop the thickly sliced hunks of steak on a bed of crispy, garden-fresh greens.



It’s not life-changing, but it is really, really good on so many levels.
