A delightful café has just opened in Milan’s Modern Art Gallery – home to the most famous collection of 19th-century works in Lombardy, located in Villa Reale, a previous Napoleonic residence. It is a new endeavor managed by LùBar, a slow street food concept first founded in 2013 in Sicily, in Noto’s Vendicari Nature Reserve.
Thus, the tables of a new and refined venue welcome the many Sicilian specialties on the menu: fruit and almond milk granite, cannoli bursting with ricotta cheese, arancini, and wines from the southern island. All inside one of the most important monuments of local neoclassicism – and an iconic spot of 18th-century Milan, in the area where aristocratic carriages used to drive around and a lemon garden bloomed.
Now the air of Milan is infused with a delicious Sicilian flavor… enjoy the wonderful synesthesia!
