RISTORANTE BERTON: Chef Andra Berton has restaurant kudos in spades. A protégé of Gualterio Marchesi, considered the father of modern Italian cuisine, Berton was head chef of Trussardi alla Scala and is already behind a duo of the coolest eateries in Isola — bistro Pisacco and cocktail and pizza bar Dry.

Ensconced on the ground floor of a slick new building in Porta Nuova, Ristorante Berton’s sweeping glass windows and elegant wood details are the hallmarks of Berton’s modern Milanese dining statement. Even the plates, crafted from a light ceramic, are custom made. But the real star is Berton’s understated, intriguing menu.

“I create authentic contemporary Italian dishes, with a mix of identifiable flavors,” Berton said. His signature is using a simple component of cooking — broth — and serving it with diverse fish and meats

Dishes like black cod with prosciutto broth, crisped bread and puntarelle could be the clincher in netting Berton’s next Michelin star.
