James Beard American Restaurant… in Milan!


I am so excited to be working on fantastic project which I am about to share with you all. Over the next 6 months, we will be bringing 50 top American chefs, to cook in a pop-up James Beard American Restaurant in the heart of Milan.

Located atop the landmark Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the James Beard American Restaurant at Seven Stars Galleria will provide a showcase for great chefs, products, ingredients, beverages, and other American gastronomic delights. Much the way the James Beard House in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village functions as a showcase for American cuisine, the restaurant in Milan will be a culinary centerpiece of the USA Pavilion.

Throughout the six months of Expo Milano 2015, every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night at the James Beard American Restaurant, visiting guest chefs from across America will prepare special five-course, regional, prix-fixe menus to celebrate the finest ingredients and cuisine from the United States. Sundays will feature brunch throughout the day, complete with jazz, gospel, and other classic American entertainment.

Special tastings, receptions, demonstrations, and other cultural events will also be held in this showcase for American cuisine.

Please visit the schedule for a list of chefs and dates they will be cooking. To reserve and purchase your seat today at the James Beard American Restaurant at 7 Stars Galleria, call 02 4547 8283.

I hope to see you all there!
