Food & Drink

6 fantastic restaurants in Milan

Although breakfast in Milan may just consist of a quick coffee and a croissant, lunch and dinner are serious affairs and there are thousands of places where you can fill your belly. Here are six of the the best.

Bar Luce

Located at Fondazione Prada, a new, highly contemporary art museum owned by the Prada Group, is Bar Luce. The décor bears the signature of Wes Anderson, a film-maker with a sense of symmetry and cunning characters. Here you can eat pastries and dream of The Grand Budapest Hotel, Anderson’s film of 2014. The wallpaper and ceiling are patterned with architectural details from a Europe of days gone by. The accessories include a jukebox and pinball machine, and you can choose to drink your coffee or spritzer at the bar or at a table.

Obicà Duomo

A loud concept bar and restaurant, completely dedicated to mozzarella in all its forms. Here you can enjoy the view of the cathedral with your creamy burrata.

Try the white hot chocolate from Farage Cioccolato a Milano. Photo: Magnus Glans

Farage Cioccolato a Milano

Hot chocolate, white or classic, with Marsala wine or rum. When the damp winter gets inside your bones, this is the cure, which also extends to pastries and chocolates. A great gift store for chocoholics.

N’Ombra de Vin

Restaurants in Milan serve snacks with your drink, called apperetivo. Here you can do what many exclusively dressed Milanese do, and shop for a bottle of wine to take home. But the best experience is to sit in the cellar, surrounded by bottles of vintages and grapes that are definitely not available to take home. Chew on pickled olives with a glass of valtellina, Lombardy’s fine wine. They also serve simple dishes of both Italian and international cuisine.

La Latteria de San Marco

With only eight tables and not taking reservations, this is not a place to arrive at starving. Here they serve Italian food with a homemade feel.

Potafiori in Milan. Photo: Magnus Glans

Potafiori

Trendy and nice, minimalist but blooming. This flower shop/restaurant/cocktail bar markets itself on its website with the slogan “fiori cibo musica” (flowers, food, music) and has a small but delectable menu and a wine list to match. But it’s the flower arrangements that draw the public into this place, as discrete from the outside as it is lush on the inside. Here fashionistas and pensioner couples mingle from morning until night. The staff are nice and they certainly look even more so thanks to their flowery chintz aprons.
