Ristorante Cracco in Milan was nominated for the Wallpaper* Design Awards 2019. This establishment is well-known in the city not only for its Milanese menu but also for its sumptuous interiors done by Studio Peregalli.
The establishment, dating from the 19th century, is divided between three different floors. Inside, aside from the restaurant (divided among three rooms and the two privé areas), there is a café, a wine cellar in the basement (which has more than 10,000 bottles and 2,000 labels) and even a private events space (known as the Sala G. Mengoni).
When it comes to the interior design a meticulous restoration os the architecture was orchestrated by Studio Peregalli. The interiors, on the other hand, were managed by Studio David Thulstrup. The design team has managed to remain close to the original design of this Galleria while at the same time inserting some relevant modern touches.
Some of these decorative elements include rust-red carpets sporting whirls and circles and some wonderful wallpapers patterned with colorful daisies. We can’t also miss the mosaic floors and the tiles with inspiration from a Gio Ponti design.
This restaurant presents a typical Milanese menu composed by chef Carlo Cracco, a prevalent personality in the country especially to those who watch Italy’s version of Hell’s Kitchen and MasterChef Italia. There is also a spot with creations by pastry chef Marco Pedron.
