RESTAURANT TORRE
OPENS IN THE NEW FONDAZIONE PRADA BUILDING IN MILAN

 

On 9 May 2018, Restaurant Torre opens to the public inside the new tower at Fondazione Prada’s Milan venue.

Restaurant Torre appears, according to Rem Koolhaas’s definition, as “a collage of pre-existing themes and elements”, combining works of art and design furniture. Its main room is located on the sixth floor and occupies an area of 215 m2 divided into two parts: the bar and the restaurant. The bar has a central counter, with a suspended bottle rack containing spirits and international liqueurs, where it is possible to enjoy a cocktail and a light dinner. The restaurant has seating for 84 guests and is arranged on three levels slightly offset from each other to recreate an ideal viewpoint. The triangular outdoor terrace overlooks the urban space covering an area of 125 m2 divided into a restaurant area seating 20 on bistro-style folding tables and chairs and a bar area, where sliding tables along the parapet can be combined or separated according to need. On the seventh floor is the chef’s table, an exclusive and reserved space with dedicated services, characterized by a glass wall with a view of the kitchens and a private terrace.

Torre’s menu is authentically Italian and draws on the best regional traditions, while the desserts offer a range of the great classics of Italian patisserie. A prestigious selection of wines from Italian and international labels completes the offer.

With the support of CARE’s - The Ethical Chef Days, the project conceived by Norbert Niederkofler and Paolo Ferretti, the restaurant will also be a place to explore international cuisines. Throughout the year, chefs under the age of thirty will be invited as guests of Restaurant Torre and for two weeks they will propose dishes typical of their country of origin, in line with the principles of an ethical and sustainable cuisine.
