God Save the Food

11807568 1105603422801920 5225064706172446315 oGod Save The Food

Whether you’re in need of an energising pick-me-up, or are craving a full meal, the juices and dishes at God Save the Food will taste heaven-sent after a day at Salone del Mobile. The pared-back and low-key setting offer a well-deserved moment of repose in one of Milan’s most attractive piazzas. We love the tuna tartare tacos and the prawn, avocado and almond salad. You can't beat a little something fresh and clean to balance out all the pizza and pasta you've been eating!

Some may say that you have not dined in Milan if you have not tried A'Riccione and we are compelled to agree. This culinary institution has been around since 1926, and while it has witnessed the evolution of the city's culinary scene, one thing has remained: tried and tested traditional cooking alongside quality ingredients for generations, and counting. Since 1955, A'Riccione has been the seafood establishment for local Milanese. The Grand Plateau Royal is all that it promises to be, paired alongside a rich selection of wines and champagnes on the menu. We recommend a bottle from the region of Franciacorta. Reservations are obligatory.
