Just 5 minutes walk from the hotel is this gem Restaurant 2254 which pays homage to the Mediterranean coastline with Italian, French and Spanish cuisines.

 

2254 refers to the number of kilometres that separate Palermo from Barcelona by road and this is where the head chef Chef Nuncio Cona originated from. 

 

The restaurant is full of allegories to the memory of its founders, both Chef's Nuncio Cona and General Manager (and wife) Irina. True values and life experiences are bedecked in every corner of this eating house. There is an indoor urban garden that covers the top part of a wall and the restaurant is serenaded with touching art works done by hand.
