Milan wins more Michelin stars

Three more Milan restaurants in the Michelin guide 2018.

Michelin-starred restaurants in Milan are up to 20, including three new entries, in next year’s Michelin Guide, announced the editors.

Four of these now hold two stars, and 16 one star each. Among those celebrating, Vun in Via Silvio Pellico has been promoted from one to two, thanks to the personality and talent of Neapolitan chef Andrea Aprea and his team, “evident in the expertly crafted dishes, which are refined, inspired and sometimes original.”

Apart from Vun, the other two-star tables in Milan remain Enrico Bartolini at the Mudec museum, Il Luogo di Aimo e Nadia, and Seta by Anton Guida.

Contraste, Trussardi alla Scala and Essenza are the new entries, with one star each.

Milan now stands at third place in Italy after Rome (with 25) and Naples (with 23 starred restaurants). Overall, Lombardy is Italy’s most dynamic region in the new edition of the Guide: the region boasts 63 starred tables – two with three stars, six with two stars and 55 with just one – including seven new entries in this edition.

But Milan managed the upgrade at the cost of a small sacrifice: two of the city’s top tables – Cracco and Sadler – have been demoted from two stars to one for 2018.
