Røst is the story of a journey that starts from the very name of the restaurant – an homage to the Norwegian island where the stockfish traditionally cooked in Veneto is fished. The unusual connection stems from the fact maître d’ and wine director Enrico Murru and chef Lucia Gaspari come from Veneto themselves. Their shared origin inspired them to reference the link between their region and the Far North. From Scandinavia, Røst draws its philosophy for pure ingredients and recipes that yield to the rhythms of nature.
The restaurant is located in Milan’s Porta Romana district, and was designed by architecture firm Vudafieri-Saverino Partners. It is a cozy, vaguely retro space imbued with industrial style. A glam touch is everywhere, with velvet and brass details. The color palette for both furniture and walls echoes the warm, earthy hues of nature.
At Røst, you can savor authentic Italian cuisine, based on tradition. The careful research for the best providers and for excellent products is clear, and speaks of great ethical standards upheld throughout the supply chain for every ingredient, including meat and fish. The wine list is also curated with close attention: have your pick amongst over 150 Italian and French wines, sourced from organic and biodynamic producers.
