If you missed the catwalks in Milan or just feel like living a wonderful moment of dolce-vita while enjoying real Milanese dishes and maybe run into the handsome Giorgio, make your way to the Emporio Armani Caffè in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
On the first floor above the boutique, the seductive Massimo Mori, maestro of the place since its opening in 1998, runs the show of this very chic and trendy dining room in elegant red and charcoal hues.
On the program : small squids with a dash of olive oil, amazing pastas and risottos with truffles in season, wild bass with array of veggies, thin scallops of veal à la milanese; for dessert, an irresistible tiramisu, fruttini, mini frosted fruit, or affogato, coffee with a vanilla scoop. And for the final touch: a lovely selection of Armani Dolci with mini chocolates embossed with the mythical A.
The alternative ? Have a drink at the bar and savor mini dishes with a very Italian inspiration. Cocktail starting at 12€.
We like : the very attentive service.
And even if you don’t have invitations to the shows, play the game by following our small tips on the do it blog: "How to behave like a fashion editor in 10 lessons ?"
