Where to eat

Where to eat in Milano? If you love food, Milano is the right city for you, as it offers everything from a quick but delicious panino to a six-course, Michelin star dinner. Here you will find my restaurant reviews and my recommendations for the best dining experiences in and around Milano.

When I eat, I’m profoundly happy. This wasn’t the case when I was a child: growing up I was a very picky eater, and I would refuse to eat or even try most foods. All I ate was pasta with butter and Parmesan, smoked salmon and steak. Crazy, I know. But then, right around the time I was 11, something clicked. I started being curious, and I started trying new foods. Turns out, I liked pretty much everything. Which, I guess, was fortunate as I landed one of the best jobs I’ve ever had shortly after graduating college. For 3 wonderful years I was the food critic for the Naples Daily News in Naples, Florida. Being a restaurant reviewer was fun and it taught me a lot about food, about ingredients, about eating and, ultimately, about myself.

Remember a few years ago, when Japanese cuisine was mostly associated with sushi? Sushi bars and restaurants were opening left and right, some of which were exceptional, some… not so much. Well, if sushi was all the rage in 2000, eighteen years later there is a new Japanese dish that is all the rage: ramen. Although I have been to Japan twice as a child, I was introduced to ramen much later, when I was…

Brazilian sushi? Why not! If you haven’t been already, then I suggest you go as soon as possible: eating at Temakinho is simply wonderful. especially if you like sushi and you like fusion cuisine. Plus, they make some amazing Caipirinhas, so good in fact that it is totally ok to order one at lunch. I swear. The idea is quite simple: combining fresh fish and fresh fruit… what could possibly go wrong? The answer is:…
