ALBERTO BATTAGLINI

Mixologist and Bar Manager

 

Another native of Verona and school chum of Luca’s, Alberto Battaglini dreamed of a restaurant career when he was still in elementary school.  Attending Scuola Alberghiera he learned the fundamentals of cooking and food service.  He quickly learned that being a chef was not for him.  From there he started an ardent love affair with spirits which took him to Gatwick, London where he met his mentor in mixology, Ian Slater.  Alberto further honed his mixology passion and skills in Spain and Mexico before meeting up with his old school friend, Luca, at Bar Toscana in Los Angeles.

 

Alberto is now the resident Mixologist at S. Y. Kitchen where he creates his own infusions of spirits and bitters from a local bounty of fruits, vegetables and herbs.  He says, “The soul of mixology is found in all the old recipes that we twist with modern ingredients and tools, in order to play with tastes to give every customer an extraordinary experience.’
