Barmare L’Altro is the rebellious and pop younger brother of Barmare di Porta Romana. The new place to be in Porta Venezia has recently opened its doors to boldly declare its intentions: to lead patrons on a journey to the most authentic Mediterranean cuisine. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed, while still emphasizing the governing principles of the Barmare dynasty: the care of raw materials and sustainability. The recipes are a blend of delicacies, yet the fish is the king of the menu. The seafood arrives fresh every morning and the dishes are designed to be shared. And like any respectable sovereign, the fish has a faithful companion at his side: fresh pasta. The pasta, as the queen of the house, is rolled out daily by chef Marco Sabbioni, who executes his culinary mastery armed with his rolling pin and expert advice handed down from his grandmother. Perfect for aperitifs with appetizers, good wine and bartender’s cocktail, lunches, dinners or even late night munchies, the kitchen is always serving it up from afternoon to late evening.

As an “international port” of gastronomy where the history of the city intersects with modernity, Fishbar de Milan can be found in the heart of the Brera district. Prior to the opening of Fishbar de Milan, up until the 1930s, was the small San Marco Lake, an ancient mooring and storage point for boats that sailed along the Navigli, merely a destination where departure was its primary function. Now, you can run to try their new summer menu that boasts a triumph of gourmet seafood specialties. If you are fond of raw fish, you can find your happy place among oysters, ceviche and tartare at Montebello 7, as well as the linguine with clams, which is always a must, and the Lobster Roll, the king of the dishes, prepared with fresh American lobster from Maine. Ready to embark on a journey through homemade flavors and exotic specialties?
