Our Story

Preludio is a contemporary dining concept from Fernando Arévalo that moves with time in orchestrated chapters, beginning with “Monochrome”, and currently on “Time”.

Each chapter directs the creative inspirations involved in every part of the dining experience.

Much like a couture house that launches a new collection every season, Preludio will release a new chapter every 12 to 18 months.

Preludio does not transform its identity with each new chapter, but uses it to mark our growth with time – like writing a story, page by page, until we begin a new chapter.

Chapter 1: Monochrome

Preludio opened with its first chapter “Monochrome” in November 2018, where the food, beverage and art are inspired in black and white. To remove colour from an object is to strip it down to its fundamental self – everything raw and everything pure. Opening with this rudimentary idea of black and white seemed only befitting for Preludio as it embarks on this unconventional journey.

Chapter 2: Time

Time, as the second chapter, aptly marks growth and an invitation for open interpretations and fresh perspectives; a departure from the visual aesthetics of the preceding realm of black and white. Beginning 3 February 2020, we embark on our second chapter, Time, where the restaurant’s offerings are expressed through the many aspects of time – be it about a moment, an age, a journey or passage; even exploring ancestry and lineage.
