One blow-out night in Milan
Since I did not like De Karmeliet, I am not sure that my restaurant suggestion will be appropriate...but my favourite restaurant in Milan is the 2* Cracco Peck.
Very different cooking styles, and in my opinion a much better balance of food.
At De Karmeliet two people must share the same tasting menu.
The Chef if he is there never leaves the kitchen..
The servers never smile.
I find the courses too heavy, and unbalanced.
Must admit that the Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup was outstanding.
Chef Cracco is very flexible, and you can choose any combination.
I have been t Cracco Peck 3 times in the past year and a half, and the last time, my husband had the tasting menu, and I ordered individually.
They even brought little "tastes" for me to fill in his multiple courses.
My baby lamb was memorable..
A first time visit is an adventure, as Chef is famous for his edible paper.
You are never rushed, and if you smile at the servers, they relax, and it is a wonderful, very long evening.
