An inspirational restaurant on many levels, Joia’s story goes back several decades to 1989 when a group of friends invited Swiss chef Pietro Leemann to consult on the menu of their new vegetarian restaurant in Italy. Still the only vegetarian restaurant to own a star in Italy, Joia continues to push the boundaries of fine dining from it’s location in the heart of Milan.
With elaborately decorated interiors and a maze-like architectural design of interconnecting rooms, Sadler is impressive for all of the senses. The menu is contemporary with an emphasis on fish and everything is beautiful and expertly prepared with minute attention to detail.
For some of the best Japanese fusion cuisine in Milan make a beeline for Iyo, which won a Michelin star in 2015. It offers exquisite sushi, sashimi, nigiri and other dishes such as Wagyu tataki ‒ tagliata of Japanese beef served with marinated black cabbage. The open kitchen here offers a spectacular view of the magic of the culinary process. Dark marble, metal curtains and exposed brick walls make this a seriously sleek place to have dinner.
One of the most successful ventures of Uruguayan chef Matias Perdomo has been the Contraste restaurant in Milan, who received a Michelin star for his past work at the famous Pont de Ferr restaurant, also in Milan. Large rooms of an old showroom, white walls and frescoed ceilings act as backdrops to Pedrali furniture. Classic decor and tables and chairs with formal aesthetics contrast with several surreal accents: small clouds used to serve appetizers, large chandeliers in red silicone and a sculpture protruding from the entrance wall.
Trussardi Alla Scala
Trussardi alla Scala serves up French and Italian cuisine in a contemporary setting. The restaurant is noted for its changing menu that showcases local and seasonal products in traditional recipes with a certain flair, such as Veal Nose braised with spumante.
