“I Banchi” is a basilica of taste and arts, in the Roman sense of the word: a place serving several purposes, from social interaction to market exchange and the administration of justice. Large reception rooms in wealthy houses were likewise termed basilicas.
For chef Ciccio Sultano, it represents the essence of taste from a light-hearted perspective. The reference to basilica, in its wider sense, suggests a sacred space where the sanctity of food such as wheat or olive oil should be celebrated.
The kitchen is coordinated by Giuseppe Cannistrà, second chef at Sultano’s Duomo, yet each creation will bear Ciccio Sultano’s gastronomic imprint.
Exalting the idea of food is the key notion, as in the traditional Sicilian putìa.
“I Banchi” can meet all requests, thanks to the availability of great products, personally chosen and tested by Sultano.
An undisputed protagonist of modern Sicilian cooking, of which the two-starred chef is one of the best and most eclectic exponents.
Imagine “I Banchi” as a joyful carousel of food, designed to offer a playful approach to nutrition and cooking in a recreational environment, in a constant quest to bring out the best pleasure-loving features that future customers will be able to enjoy.
