Pane e Acqua – Milano

26 Apr

Chef Francesco Passalacqua’s aptly named restaurant Pane e Acqua offers much more than your average Milanese faire. The former tabbacheria has been transformed into an innovative cafe’/restaurant which is more like an all-day creative kitchen – an art gallery that serves slow food, if you will.

Renowned for his creative cuisine, Passalacqua presents a menu inspired by a mélange of Mediterranean influences alongside impressive gourmet Italian artisan pleasures.

The décor is eclectic and creatively entertaining with pieces such as the upside down wine glass and fork candle holder.

The interior is as seasonal as the menu, where everyday objects take on new meaning.

Many original features of the old tabbacheria  have been retained while the addition of hard minimalist features has created an industrial-chic feel.
