Italy, Milan: need some inspiration!

damiano | Feb 7, 201811:52 AM

So, I'll be visiting Milan again next month.

Just a short visit: Friday to Sunday, so 2 dinners and 2 lunches. I'm with some friends now (mostly in their early 30s), and without partner, so this will impact our dining decisions. Everything ideally needs to be a bit loud :-)

We are definitely not looking for high end dining, but instead fun places, excellent Lombard cuisine, good drinks and some people watching. We will most likely be staying in Ticinese.

I have browsed the board, but couldn't really find anything suitable. Maybe it helps if I say what I'd like to have.

1) A dinner with seafood,
2) A lunch in a traditional trattoria, and
3) A dinner in a somewhat brasserie-style restaurant, serving traditional food - I'm ideally looking to eat cotoletta alla Milanese, or just a good steak.

For the seafood dinner I am thinking of Langosteria 10:

For the traditional lunch I had Latteria San Marco in mind, in Brera, but there might be something equally good nearer by?

For the cotoletta I'm thinking of Antica Trattoria della Pesa, but am afraid it might be too quiet for a Saturday night?

Would appreciate any feedback, or new suggestions! Thanks.
