Before it went under renovation, the club and the restaurant of Immigrant were not truly separated. You had clubbers next to you when you were dining, along with loud music and a terrible smell of cigarette smoke.

This was obviously a problem and the owners of Immigrant have solved it by opening two different venues: The club Immigrant, and the restaurant, The Dining Room at Immigrant. Both are still next to each other on the 6th floor of Plaza Indonesia, but there is no direct connection between them.

The Dining Room at Immigrant is probably one of the best venues for eating casual Western food in the mall, along with Moovina, Saint Louis (La Moda) and Bistro Baron. Compared to those, it has the advantage of being in a quieter location, and therefore more suitable for a date or an intimate dinner. It doesn't have a garden but there are large windows and many plants, giving the place a fresh feeling that it did not have before.

I visited during lunch on a weekday. The atmosphere was calm and serene. I imagine that it must be quiet different during the weekends, especially considering they will have DJs playing. The design is similar with E&O, Loewy or Union.

I was with a few friends and we were able to sample a few dishes (see below). The menu is international, with mostly Italian dishes (Pizza & Pasta) and Meat (particulary Beef Ribs). Overall the food we tried was very good, and not too expensive except if you go for the beef.
Pizza Margarita (Rp70,000++)
Iga Bakar Bumbu Bali (Rp190,000++)
Conchiglioni Pasta (Rp80,000++)
Fondant Au Chocolat (Complimentary from the Manager)
My only criticism is that the dishes were missing some originality and some truly unique flavours. I heard that the Chef from Garçon will work in the Dining Room soon and I hope he can add a little something to the recipes to turn them into something more memorable.

Overall: I recommend you to try the Immigrant's Dining Room. The place has just opened so I don't know how it will evolve.Hopefully it could become a lively pre-clubbing venue such as Loewy, Social House or Union...
