Among the resolutions for the new year there is the diet. Zone diet, calorie diet, color diet, just diet. But after a look at the coolest places to eat in Milan, you will soon forget the calories. Milan is a city that offers a lot, even in terms of cuisine. In addition to taverns and traditional food, it is easy to find glamourous restaurants.

If you want to taste Sicily, come to Milan. It may seem impossible, but that’s what happens when you go to to Don Luigi. It starts with the pastries at breakfast, have lunch with the sublime arancini alla Norma, grant a break with a cannolo and take a couple of cassata for the evening. The spot is a bit retrò-style, like the pastries of the past. The owner is from Sicily true and that of the sweets is a family passion. The restaurant is named after the grandfather, Luigi exactly, Messina and appreciated pastry.

Blow off some steam in the middle of the week. Just take refuge in a cabin in the woods in the heart of Milan. It seems crazy, but it’s the reality of Walden, a little literary cafè, a little creative hub and cocktail bar. Here we eat strictly vegan, while browsing a book or listening to a poetry reading. It carves out time to think, meet or just relax. You can taste the little things, rediscover more human rhythms, just live the moment while outside the city runs.
