TO EAT: Turbigo Bar & Restaurant
Situated in the Navigli canal district, Turbigo has an eclectic style that mixes the contemporary with the charm of old Milan. It leans toward a lounge, but blurs the lines between spaces, from tables along the canal, to the bar, to a secluded room and courtyard garden, where customers can relax and enjoy this cozy corner of the city.
Diners can enjoy breakfast, snacks or entrées all day long. The young chef, Raffaele Lenzi, offers fresh-made cakes like tarts, plum cakes and sponge cakes, as well as two signature seasonal sandwiches and light meals for a quick bite.
Among Turbigo’s specialties are grilled cuttlefish, pineapple, leek and a raw friggitello frying pepper; linguine with clams and roasted pepper; Milanese saffron risotto with Genovese-style veal sauce; pork chops with pumpkin and yogurt, and mango with chocolate and fennel.
And characteristic of its specialty cocktails are the dashes of herbs — as in the Mediterraneo (London dry gin, yellow Chartreuse, pineapple juice and rosemary syrup).
