The brand new hotspot in Milan, the place to be and to be seen, where the very best of the “made In Italy” in the fields of catering, food, wine, interior design, culture, art and fashion are brought together to express and show the world the finest Italian cuisine.
An innovative alliance under the umbrella of the Altagamma Foundation Is it a restaurant? YES and much more. It is a mere model of Italian hospitality, an innovative location expressing the best of our lifestyle mixing food and art, great wines and design, culture and fashion.
The new restaurant concept was launched on September 16th in Via Manzoni 5 in Milan. The restaurant is open to the public from the October 1st 2013. Open from Monday to Saturday, it is the ideal place to have a fantastic start of your day, for business or leisure, from breakfast with a cappuccino and croissant, lunch with clients, aperitif with colleagues and dinner.
The cuisine is inspired by the Mediterranean and based on fresh fish, vegetables and pasta and comes from “Il Riccio Restaurant” in Capri with its Michelin star, where simplicity has been its hallmark and key to success in recent years. Young Chef Gennaro Immobile lets ingredients take their central role, respecting seasonal cycles with utmost attention.
LARTE is a crossroads and a meeting place of all the culinary excellence in Italy. Indeed, every month and for a week, it will host a guest Chef, a rising star of the Italian gastronomy who will have the opportunity to express his talents and show the specialties of his native region. Small producers and farmers of the very same region will also be invited at the gourmet event.
Furniture and decoration of LARTE are unique pieces of Italian excellence from the best brands of fashion and design. They are featured and sold in a catalogue as part of the innovative experience offered to guests. The works of the most renowned Italian designers like Achille Castiglioni, Fortunato Depero, Carlo Molino or important contemporary Italian artists such as Francesco Messina, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Emilio Vedova or Alberto Burri will contribute to create a special atmosphere.
Such an innovative place will become very quickly THE meeting point of excellence, not just a shop, a restaurant, a bar or a museum. It will be all of these together, a true concept store, an experience to live and share where you can find traditional and artistic Italian handicraft.
