So Zen is a cosy outdoor terraced restaurant recalling a Mediterranean-Arabian feel, aiming to infuse a sense of harmony with the surrounding: Mt Vesuvius, the bay of Naples and such a vicinity to the ancient villas.
Furnished with natural materials and exotic plants, fountains and elaborate lamps, So Zen features an open kitchen and a traditional wood fired oven dedicated to local and fusion gastronomy.
The culinary vision is based on two different concepts: lunch menus focus on traditional recipes, high quality local products and carefully selected wines. From early evening, the atmosphere becomes cheery with water and lights’ play, candles reflecting countless patterns and dream catchers. Menu gets enriched with spicy Arabian recipes and mezzes, a selection of champagne and top cocktails list.
When the sun sets, artists and music come into play: middle Eastern rhythms, belly dancers, DJ’s sets till late on weekends, the oracle, henna tattoos, non-alcoholic narghilé and a binocular to say hallo to the moon … and back! Throughout the summer, So Zen is a stage where food experience and quality entertainment go hand in hand. Dinner shows, performances and parties. Programmes and updates are available on the Facebook page. From April till October.
Several proposals are thought for each moment of the day: from the calming atmosphere of the day to the lively feel of the night.
Imagining a more ZEN life, we have prepared a “menu” for carefree moments…
