Dan and Dean Caten, the brothers from the fashion design brands Dsquared2, decided to bring some more life to Milan by opening a new restaurant. They developed the blueprints and the interior design for this new venue, with Storage Studio and Dimore Studio.
Unveiled during Milan Fashion Week, this place is called Ceresio 7 and it is headed by former Bulgari Hotel Chef Elio Sironi. The location? The penthouse level of the Dsquared2 headquarters, on Via Ceresio.
The furniture is in line with the 30’s and 40’s style of the building, with warm light blue walls, brass or red and green lacquered elements, billiard lamps and fireplaces.
“This is a real estate project,” notes Gianfranco Maccarrone, chief executive officer of the company, which owns the palazzo. “It completes the Dsquared2 lifestyle and its image should reflect the building and the company.”
Ceresio 7 is managed by partners Edoardo Grassi, Marco Civitelli and Luca Pardini, who also headed up the Hotel Bulgari restaurant.
The terrace has an amazing circular view over Milan, featuring two pools and a lounge area. The menu is mainly Italian, with an international and seasonal addition, with a return to the traditional techniques and methods. Spaghetti with tomato sauce, goat cheese and lemon peel, Milanese cotoletta or carpaccio with white truffle and grilled fish are some of the dishes one can enjoy at Ceresio 7. As for wine and champagne, around 180 labels from Italy are available!
The restaurant works from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., serving breakfast and after-dinner drinks. You can also go for a Sunday brunch, while enjoying the view.
