Welcome Sureno’s New Italian Chef de Cuisine Roberto Commino
When Sureno opened, it set a new standard in the city for quality dining and has continued to remain at the top of our list for special occasions.
Always serving top-notch dishes that stand out by the freshness that you can taste, their service also happens to be among the best in the industry. Their gracious GM Themis Kouris will always be our favorite friendly face to see every time we step into Sureno and he spoke very highly of their new Chef de Cuisine from Italy, so I was very happy to meet the newest member of the Sureno superstar team and taste his talents!
Roberto Cimmino is from a city just south of Rome called Marino in Lazio, Italy and has previously worked in many restaurants in Italy and moved on to taking over the Italian kitchens based in top hotels around China including Shanghai and most recently the Westin in Guangzhou, so has the perfect pedigree for the pan-Mediterranean Sureno.

Annie’s Family Italian: Dependable Delivery Galore
When Beijing’s summer weather is so wildly unpredictable with thunder rain storms plaguing our plans almost every other day the past few weeks, it makes you appreciate a delivery service as speedy and as reliable as Annie’s Family Italian.
A staple, go-to restaurant in Beijing since the beginning days of Beijing’s international dining scene, Annie’s has been around since 1999. Before even Hatsune Japanese restaurant (one of the oldest restaurants I know in Beijing), it’s hard to imagine what Beijing was like back then. It’s mind-boggling to see Annie’s original branch on Chaoyang Park West Gate still there standing strong with Beijing’s first authentic wood-fired brick oven and seeing new branches popping up on practically every corner of Chaoyang District with over 400 staff on board and over 100 electric bikes zooming all over Beijing’s streets!
