Milan – Ristorante Alice

So made a fatal error going to this 1* for lunch on a weekend, the three course menu is only on weekdays. Didn’t want to eat too much since going to a 2* for dinner that will be 12+ courses, yikes! We ended up having the five course menu that also had some amuse and some fruit instead of sorbet before the dessert which did feature sorbet…go figure.

Alice is located in the top floor of an Eataly which are also in Turin (the original), Chicago, and NY. It’s a much more impressive Whole Foods with tons of cheeses, cured meats, seafood, meat, and pasta surrounded by small restaurants not separated by anything more than a rope delineating eating vs. shopping.
