Milan for the weekend:

Bars and restaurants you must visit!

As I am often staying in Milan, many friends ask me for advice what to see, what restaurants, bars, and places they shouldn’t miss. I have already written about the sightseeing of Milan in the past postings, but I will be happy to share the top locations where to eat and where to enjoy the best coffee and aperitifs.

Milan from Expo 2015 becomes a city where every day a new cool place, worth visit pops up, but these are my favorites:

Pave

Breakfast is the most important part of the day, so start it at a good location. One of the bars that will delight you with the offer and decoration is definitely Pave. Except the perfect coffee, it offers a great choice of breakfast – from sweet croissants, brownies, to brioches with top quality prosciutto, salmon and all prepared home made with particular attention to the ingredients they use.

Ceresio 7

This place is definitely everything! You can have an excellent Italian espresso, served with delicious sweets, and enjoy the view of the city in the shade of the pool, and you can always jump in it. If you want to try out the Italian specialities then you can stay for lunch or just come in the evening at the aperitif or pool party. The owners of this area are famous designers Dsquared2 so each detail is carefully selected and styled to fit in space

Miscusi

For lovers of the finest pasta dishes, and acceptable for everyone’s pocket, there is definitely Miscusi’s restaurant. Only home-made pastas are used here, so the taste of each dish is as if they were prepared by real Italian grandma for Sunday lunch. Characteristic decoration, with long tables, invites people to socialise and have fun tasting food. A true Italian way of living – dolce vita!

Ravioli with truffles

Mun – fine asian kitchen

For sushi lovers, Milan has become a real top place. As it grows into a true metropolis, the inhabitants of all races can now be seen here, especially Asians who, with their arrival, enriched the offer of Asian cuisine. I would definitely recommend the Mun restaurant. As it is near Ceresio7, you can combine a sushi dinner with a later drink at the Ceresio 7 rooftop bar.

Alfresco

The place that absolutely impressed me lately. An ideal place for a romantic dinner for two or dinner with friends in a pleasant setting and atmosphere. What to point out? Absolutely everything. At first step it will already conquer you by decorating, high windows that give plenty of light in the interior, and a lavish garden decorated with lights that at every season give a special charm. From the food you can try pastas, steak, burgers or seafood specialities, all prepared with a special fusion of flavor and served with style on the plate. Definitely try a drink Moscow Mule, best I have ever tasted.

Radio Rooftop Bar

I’m an absolute fan of rooftop bars, and I enjoyed the most on them in New York. That is why I am happy to be able to enjoy almost the same way in Milan. Apart from Ceresio7, which, I must mention, is for guests with a bit bigger budget, if you want to relax in the food and drink in more acceptable way, certainly worth seeing is Radio Rooftop Bar. When you walk on that terrace you will need a few minute to remind yourself that you are not in New York but in Milan. The view of the city is wonderful, and if you come to the aperitif, you will be painted in gold colour one of the most majestic sunsets. The colours that you will see on the Milan sky at the time of the sunset will take your breath away. This place is great for aperitifs which can later be turned into real clubbing because music is often played by top DJ.

The Doping Club

If you are a fan of interior design or interesting photo corners, The Doping Club is the place for you. This club and restaurant is part of the interesting The Yard hotel, and in the same complex is a very creative pizzeria with even more creative name Dirty Gym. Tip is to try everything, and restaurant and clubbing and pizza. You will not make a mistake if you stay longer because visitors are always interesting, from all over the world and the atmosphere is great. Perhaps the best idea is to stay in this hotel that will impress you with a design of the rooms, each room is decorated in the style of a particular sport.

Amorino

Sugar on top! Milan is famous for its good Italian ice cream, so you can not choose the wrong pastry shop. It will impress you with the variety of flavours they offer because a lot of them you can not taste outside of Italy. From the famous pastry shops there is Grom, Venchi 1878, Done with L’amore. I’m going to point out Amorino, that is really tasty. What will conquer you is the way they serve the ice cream, and it is in the shape of a rose!

Amorino

We came to the end. I’ll just point out once again, I’ve set up my, currently, top selection of bars, restaurants that you need to try, but that’s not all. Milan becomes from day to day a place that does not fit into one article, so I have already wrote on a blog several articles about this, more then, interesting city. To be continued ..
