Mediterranean cuisine, with a touch of New York
Walking through the Navigli district in Milan trying to find a good spot for dinner can be overwhelming. So many amazing options, so little time.
Making your way down via Tortona, you’ll pass by a dodgy-looking door guarded by a man in a suit, who could easily be mistaken for a bouncer. Don’t be alarmed, he’s the one who buzzes you in and escorts you through the courtyard to the entrance of Soho Restaurant: a specialised Mediterranean seafood restaurant, complete with a raw fish tasting menu but without the jaw-dropping prices that a place like this could have. An added bonus is that the wine list includes some of the best Italian and French wines, but still seems to be very reasonably priced.
If you’re not into raw fish, there are plenty of other seafood options, as well as homemade pasta, salads and mouthwatering desserts offered.
Clearly inspired by Soho lofts in New York, the design of the restaurant is intimate and warm, yet feels spacious with clever interior design and decor, glass tables, and plenty of natural light streaming in through the big windows. The atmosphere is relaxed, yet somewhat fancy and therefore it seems Soho Ristorante attracts quite a mixed crowd of people.
