The menu brings forth the themes dearest to Executive Chef Francesco Mascheroni and accompanies guests into the new season through ingredients that enhance dishes with autumnal flavours while enjoying the scenic setting of Armani Hotel Milano.
October 18, 2022: Armani/Ristorante, the restaurant at Armani Hotel in Milan, has recommended three new tasting itineraries for the 2022 edition of the Michelin Guide Italy: Tradizione in Evoluzione, Presente and La Mia Cucina Vegetale.
The menu brings to the table the themes dearest to Executive Chef Francesco Mascheroni. It accompanies guests into the new season through ingredients that enhance dishes with autumnal flavours to be enjoyed in the panoramic setting of the seventh floor of Armani Hotel Milano. Essential and linear, Francesco Mascheroni’s cuisine works by subtraction to get to the essence of the raw material.
Fish and meat are the protagonists of Tradizione in Evolution, a 6-course menu that travels from north to south, giving new interpretations, colours, and shapes to typical recipes such as Trippa (seafood), Tarte Tatin, or products such as Michetta, which becomes a choux pastry with burrata di Andria, mackerel and Amalfi lemon jam.
Presente is a mature proposal, rich in suggestion and creativity. The chef moves nimbly between seafood and land dishes with a particular focus on fish, with Scallops, Spaghetti di Gragnano with sea urchins and caviar, or Coda di Rospo. The Rice with pumpkin, porcini mushrooms, and guinea fowl ragout are unmissable. It’s a 7-course menu that will change following the seasonality of raw materials.
Finally, La Mia Cucina Vegetale includes three vegan dishes, such as Dim Sum, roast, clarified broth with fermented kimchi, Crisp Vegetable Garden, red quinoa, frozen snow, and Citrus, shiso sorbet, and saffron. A menu with minor forays into the Orient and dishes with exotic flavours and aromas with a total of six courses.
Lastly, the menu includes a selection of the best from Italy and around the world for those who love cheeses. It is possible to order a la carte by choosing a minimum of two dishes from the tasting menus.
