Asola | Cucina Sartoriale is a new gourmet destination for lovers of haute cuisine on the ninth floor of The Brian&Barry Building.
Located in piazza San Babila, between via Durini and via Borgogna, in the heart of downtown Milan, “Asola | Cucina Sartoriale” dominates the beating heart of the Milanese metropolis from its prime position on the ninth floor of the building that Brian&Barry has dedicated to the celebration of excellence.
Asola is the temple of Chef Matteo Torretta who interprets gourmet Italian cuisine in a contemporary, international key with the same sartorial attention dedicated to a made-to-measure garment. The kitchen thus becomes an atelier where the chef, like a tailor, combines flavours and ingredients to give life to unique, exciting creations. A sartorial take on gastronomy, also apparent in the restaurant’s original, innovative architecture which makes Asola a one-of-akind location on the Milanese dining scene. From the large kitchen, strategically located in the centre of the dining room, the chef interacts with the diners who, seated around a large counter, are actually able to watch their dishes being prepared. For those in search of a more intimate atmosphere, the “San Babila” table, featuring a breathtaking view over the eponymous square, is the place to be.
Open daily 12-11pm.
