am starting a new Category today: Cool Places. Every so often stories of new restaurants or clubs enter my mailbox. This was the case again today, and I just have to share this Milan restaurant with you: Carlo e Camilla Restaurant. It’s like few other restaurants you have ever seen. Located in an abandoned 1930’s Milan sawmill, it is owned and re-designed by art-director Tanja Solci.
Cathedral ceilings and rough-hewn industrial walls surround vintage chandeliers and a huge communal table surrounded by Cappelini chairs, seating 70 guests.
Behind the stove is Michelin-starred celebrity chef Carlo Cracco (of Ristorante Cracco fame) and his team. He serves his traditional Italian recipees with a contemporary twist on vintage porcelain and ornate tablewares. There’s also an innovative “mixologist” dishing up impeccable mixed cocktails in artisanal stemware.
I’m sure that Carlo e Camilla Restaurant will be packed during the Milan Fashion Week or the Salone di Mobile, or any other day. So make your reservation in time! For details click here.
