Pisacco Milan – Simple and Sophisticated
Pisacco could have possibly just become my favorite restaurant in Milan.
The restaurant is the result of a collaboration between an eclectic group of people including an architect, an art collector, a lawyer and a Michelin-starred chef, and it shows.
It’s understated, refined but not stuffy, and the food rocks.
The dishes are generally quite simple but made with incredibly high-quality ingredients. Take the Cantabric Sea anchovies, Jerusalem artichoke and smoked cardamom butter appetizer, for example, it really is exactly what it says it is. A few slices of anchovies, a Jerusalem artichoke baked in foil and some whipped butter. Heck! I don’t even usually like anchovies (unless it’s cooked into something else), and had like 5 fillets as toppings to my buttered bread.
As the main course, I had tempura fried soft shell crab, DELICIOUS. It was one of the specials of the day and an ingredient I had been craving like a pregnant woman for days.
The hubby had a hamburger and the friend that came with us a beautiful salad followed by gorgonzola ravioli, mussels, sweet potato, and brussels sprouts. I didn’t try it. He said it was good. I can say that it was really pretty.
It also helped that the staff was attentive, courteous and able to answer all the questions my curious foodie mind could come up with. I definitely recommend it!
