On days that call for a heavy day-end meal, Bistecca satisfies with an impressive Italian-American menu. Clamoring for the title of Jakarta’s number one steakhouse, it wows with well-prepared meat for the urban carnivore. The dimly-lit restaurant resembles New York chophouses from the late 19th to 20th century—the perfect setting for intimate meetings and after-work libations.
