Chic ‘n Quick – Trattoria Moderna di Claudio Sadler

Refined yet casual atmosphere in the multi-starred Sadler’s restaurant bistrot

I tried it without even realising it, maybe because the restaurant next to it was already closed, or maybe because I was hungry (and who knows me well knows that I joke about everything but not about this!). Only later I discovered that the place is run by Sadler: you can really meet him while he visually follows the dishes to the tables giving his finishing touches (just out of curiosity, have you seen a starred chef in kitchen lately or only on TV?). We are in Claudio Sadler’s Chic ‘n Quick – Trattoria Moderna.

Sophisticated yet casual atmosphere, where you can feel at ease even wearing jeans, just to say, but the food is serious: refined, highest quality ingredients, unique course or a la carte daily menu. I tasted several dishes and all of them were really good, (they seem!) simple and beautiful to look at. They’re all so different that I really wouldn’t know what to suggest, it’s not the place where one can only choose between fish or meat. Be assured that whatever choice you make, it will have a “return policy” … and it would be a safe bet!

From the risotto alla Milanese to raw fish, from Fassona tartare to low temperature cooked salmon with tzatziki sauce, there’s plenty of choice. I have tasted most of the first courses. Short, long, stuffed pasta or Sardinian fregola … always impeccable! Even the simplicity of a high quality cold cut, like the black truffle mortadella, once you try it becomes indispensable.

Prices? You would not believe … More than affordable for a starred chef’s bistrot (2 Michelin stars), but in line with other high-end restaurants in Milan (first courses around 13 €, main courses around 20 €, complete lunch menu 20 €, single course lunch 21 €). One regret? I still haven’t been able to participate in a theme night.

Do you want to make a very Flawless choice? Get a tandem menu as a present for two: it’s a tasting menu, appetiser, first course, main course and dessert for 90€.  When it seems like eating well is inaccessible just remember about C’nQ!

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences milan has to offer.

Bombarded daily by information of all kinds, transmitted by an ever-increasing number of communication tools, we sometimes look for a simplification, a reliable source, a guide. Flawless Milano was born from this need, and tells the best experiences to have in Milan with style, precision and personality.
