Valentine’s day is gone, but if you want to give an extra to your “must of all”, offer a dine this weekend at one of the most vibrant restaurants at Via Tortona. We invite you to one of the new Milan Restaurants, Mudec!
Milan’s museum scene is heating up with the new additions of the Prada Fondazione, Armani Silos and most recently the David Chipperfield-designed Mudec, the city’s first museum dedicated to culture. Though the museum and its wavy walled interiors are worth a quick visit, the space’s main attraction is its top floor restaurant that brings a high-end eating establishment to Zona Tortona for the first time.
Run by the Bulleri family, founders of the famed Da Giacomo restaurant and its five other eating establishments around the city, the new 70-seat eatery is home to a 28-year old hotshot chef called Pasquale Frigoli.
From a design standpoint, the restaurant is showered in a new minimal art-deco vibe. Designed by Fabio Rotella, the principle in Milan based architectural firm Studio Rotella, the space features a slickly varnished briarwood panelled wall featuring geometric shapes and brass trims. The main room is divided by three screens crafted from flat brass chains hanging from the ceiling and features oak floors, brown linen curtains, caramel coloured leather chairs, and round walnut banquettes.
Best of all is a great looking bar and outdoor patio area that will surely service the town’s fashion and design clientele that is constantly searching for a decent watering hole in Zona Tortona.
Is Mudec a restaurant you’ll go before Milan Design Week 2016 starts?
