StarHotels are our “go to” hotel in Italy, since the hotels are consistent, tastefully decorated, serve a full buffet breakfast, and offer a nice bar and restaurant in all locations. Our favorite (of course!) is StarHotel Anderson in Milan, where our friend, Giovanni, manages the Black Bar and Black Restaurant.
No visit to Milan would be complete without a Cosmo artfully prepared by the Cosmo Master himself, Giovanni.
Try as I may, there is just no comparison to the drink that is served in the US, that resembles a Cosmo, but never tastes quite like the ones in Milan – as made by the Master!
Ready for dinner? Let’s take a look at what Chef Angelo has prepared for us tonight.
How about an appetizer to tease the palate? Don’t eat TOO much, because there is always a plateful of goodness served by Chef everytime we visit.
Hubby had the Risotto Milanese, tagliata de filetto di manzo rucola e grana – a feast for the taste buds!
Sitting pretty on my plate was Melone retato e prosciutto di Parma, spaghetti pomodorino pachino e basilico – a symphony of flavors that played in perfect harmony on my plate.
Almost too pretty to eat (but only long enough for a photo, then devoured by yours truly!). Buon Appetito!
