Cast within one of the most modern and architectural dining rooms in Milan, Ristorante Berton is as much about the visuals as the 2-star Michelin cuinine. From an address in central Milan at the Porta Nuova complex Varesine, visitors arrive to a dapper reception and into a main dining room of glass panels. Illuminated by sunlight and moody evening light, the space features generously portioned tables, sculptural chairs and buttress ceiling.
An ala carte and various tasting menus for lunch and dinner yield incredible presentations of Sicilian red prawns with crispy amaranth, taggiasca olive oil and beetroot sorbet or Tuna Belly with lettuce, almond, capper’s dust and green olive. Pasta course garners rigatoni with parsley, mussels, clams and cockles or lasagna of partridge. Main course choices include lobster two ways or roasted Japanese Wagyu beef with guacamole, green onion and paprika puffed potatoes.
For those that want a closer view of the chef in action, two tables offer kitchen views separated by a mere pane of glass.
