LUME, the Michelin starred restaurant found in Milan, Italy, has announced that they have opened a new al fresco area. The new area, Orto di LUME has been opened following is very successful first year for the award winning restaurant. The restaurant first opened in June 2016, with Executive Chef Luigi Taglienti and the restaurant managed to gain its first Michelin star only six months later. The restaurant has also been named as the Best New European Restaurant at the OAD Awards which took place in May in Paris.
This exceptional restaurant has now continued its development by opening the new al fresco experience for old and new customers of the LUME to enjoy. The Orto di LUME was an idea that was panned from the initial designing of the restaurant. And now the al fresco area has been delivered on time and ahead of schedule with the work having no impact on the day to day operation and service at the established LUME restaurant.
The new outdoor area is said to be amazing, a white grey and green space that has been constructed away from the busy streets of Milan in order to offer visitors a calming oasis to enjoy the food on offer by Executive Chef Luigi Taglienti. The focal point to the 160 sq. m. space is a large birdcage. Measuring 60 sq. m., the birdcage offers seating for the guests to enjoy the same menu on offer in the main indoor restaurant.
The design, food and service all merge together in a way that has been designed by LUME in order to offer visitors an experience as opposed to simply a meal. The new al fresco space carries on this ethos, offering guests a different environment to enjoy the experience. The oversized 19th century birdcage, for instance, is a unique design feature for the restaurant and a memorable feature for guests at the restaurant.
