Fashion Food – Milano Fashion Week

It is Milan Fashion Week and let me introduce you to the languid, sensual world of Italian dining. From fine wine to artisanal pastry, cured meat to hand-made pasta, these restaurants, bakeries and bars will send your senses into heady, enthralling overdrive.

10 Corso Como Café

Corso Como, 10 / +39 02 654831

Neighborhood: Brera/Isola

Carla Sozzani’s small retail, dining and accommodations empire
features a Kris Ruhs-designed black-and-white dining room, with
charming views over a plant-filled, Parisian-style courtyard. The
organic food is simple and delicious, but the real point is to come
for the 6:00 p.m. aperitivi and ultra fashionable people watching.

Armani / Lounge

Via Manzoni, 31 / +39 02 88838888

Neighborhood: Montenapoleone/Corso Venezia

Overlooking the magnificent skyline and terraces of the city, the
Armani / Lounge features a bamboo bar, double volume ceiling, louvered
window wall and backlit onyx features. It’s the perfect spot for a
pre-dinner aperitivo, a light lunch or elegant afternoon tea, and the
service is impeccable.

Convivum Ristorante

Via Ponte Vetero, 21 / +39 02 86463708

Convivum’s cool and casual atmosphere and mouthwatering menu is
sourced from only the freshest of seasonal ingredients, which make
their way into a delicious variety of pizzas and classic Italian fare.

Ristorante Da Giacomo

Via Pascale Sottocorno, 6 / +39 02 76023313

Neighborhood: Montenapoleone/Corso Venezia

A favorite of Dolce & Gabbana, as well as Mr. Giorgio Armani himself,
Da Giacomo offers the perfect mix of traditional and trendy, featuring
a classical yet stylish décor. Its outstanding fish preparations are
well deserving of its high culinary reputation and a must for those
looking for a healthy yet tasty meal.


Excelsior Milano, Galleria del Corso, 4 / +39 02 76307301

Neighborhood: Duomo

The basement level of the fashionable Excelsior department store is a
gastronomic celebration, featuring a gourmet supermarket that offers
an extensive selection of products including fine wines, fresh meat
and fish, hand-made pasta and daily baked breads, as well as
beautifully packaged goods. There are three separate dining solutions
offered: “now” for sophisticated take-away, ‘”fast” for a seasonal
menu at the in-store bistro, and “slow,” which allows customers to
experience the gourmet creations of a regularly rotating list of
renowned guest chefs.

Giacomo Bistrot

Via Sottocorno, 5-6 / +39 02 76022653

Not to be confused with its older sibling, Da Giacomo, Giacomo Bistrot
is a more low-key affair, popular for lunch, or an aperitivo while
partaking in some of the best people watching the city has to offer.

Il Salumaio di Montenapoleone

Via Santo Spirito, 10 / +39 02 76001123

This is the latest opening of the longstanding Milanese institution,
Il Salumaio, which has been around since 1957. The gorgeous al fresco
courtyard dining is a fun place to watch the world go by, while the
attached fine grocery shop allows diners to bring a bit of the magic
