I have looked on these boards, through books and on blogs and am having trouble choosing 4-5 dinners in Milan, any help we can get would be much appreciated. It seems as if every magazine, blog and post recommends different restaurants.
We are from SF and love lots of flavor that comes primarily from the freshness of seasonal ingredients cooked beautifully, and preparations that allow ingredients to shine. We enjoy finding restaurants with talented chefs while traveling, but do not want to pay more than $200-250 for dinner for the two of us and would be happy to pay less :).
We are not looking for Asian or burgers this time around. I love risotto and although I don't know if Milan has wine bars with amazing chef-y appetizers, if they do, please share! We loved Dans les Landes in Paris and read about that restaurant in Paris by Mouth and a few other great blogs. Does anyone know similar blogs in Milan or the region?
Any suggestions are much appreciated. Thank you in advance! My husband and I will be staying at the Enterprise Hotel near the Milan Convention Center, and while most of our dinners will be the two of us, one dinner will be in a larger group and another will be with us entertaining his boss who LOVES great wine and impressive food.
