Ristorante Bistrot del Binari on via Tortona was incredible. It’s quite bizarre, but I ended up having breakfast, lunch and dinner there whilst in Milan {and for the record, I didn’t stay anywhere near the restaurant}. The food was brilliant, especially dinner which was super yummy. Not to mention the gorgeous interior – again, photos do not do it justice. I guess you’ll just have to go and see it for yourself…


This little fella was also on via Tortona, but I can’t really tell you what it was called as I literally accidentally walked into it mistaking it for a design installation. Such a striking interior – black and white is always a winner.


Here are just a few of my favourite bits of general Milanese fabulousness, primarily the restaurants and a little bit of retail.

Nobody does courtyards, gardens and al fresco dining like the Italians.

Extreme love.

By the way, this concludes my series of posts from Salone for now. The blog will be back to “normal” from next week. Woot woot! I hope you’ve enjoyed my “Milan 2010 report” – phew, it’s taken a bit of work I tell ya. And thank you for all your encouragement via comments, tweets and e-mails. Without them I probably would have stopped ages ago.
