Dolce & Gabbana have opened one of the most luxurious, sumptuous restaurants and bars in Milan named Gold, 1800 square metres of stone, weather, glass and… gold.
Already a firm favourite with the glamorati, reservations for the restaurant are essential. ‘Check in’ at the entrance, which feels more like the reception of a five star hotel than a restaurant, before heading up to the first floor restaurant or the lower-key ground floor bistrot and bar / cafe. The fomer is frequented by an affliuent, fashionable crowd, whilst the latter is popular with a younger and more casual (but no less stylish) tribe. Cigar devotees should head for the smart smoking room to enjoy some of Havana’s finest.
The cuisine is traditional Italian mixed in with Sicilian influences (no doubt courtesy of Domenico Dolce who was born near Palermo) like pasta alle sarde (with sardines) or gnocchi all’astice (lobster), but also the gold is eatable so make room for the dessert of gold and chocolate.
