Tucked away in the old finance district of Milan just behind the Scala in a beautiful historic building, is T'a Store and Bistrot. This former old drinking hole of ours has been transformed by the Alemagna brothers into a beautiful gourmet restaurant, pasticceria (cake shop) and sophisticated cocktail bar all rolled into one.
Open all day, you can enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner during meal times or simply pop in for freshly made pastries and coffee at breakfast time or for afternoon tea. Oh and don' t forget to stop by for a well earned cocktail after a hard day of shopping or work.
For those of you planning to lunch or dine at T'a, Umberto Vezzoli - T'a's award winning chef - has put together an amazing menu which boasts dishes such as: parmigiana di melanzane con primo sale al pesto e liquirizia con insalate (Parmigiana with pesto and liquorice salt and salad) and composizione di Capesante con verdure in agrodolce (scallops with sweet and sour vegetables), followed by filetto Rossini, con tonno, Foie-Gras spadellato e spinaci (tuna steak Rossini with fresh foie-gras and spinach) or medaglione di pescatrice al bacon con Lattughe brasate, asparagi verdi e barbabietole rosse (monk fish medallions with braised lettuce, asparagus and beetroot). If you still have room after that, enjoy the delicious pastries, cakes and chocolates that are prepared daily to eat in or take-away.
T'a also sells boxes and hampers packed full of T'a's delicious chocolate creations and other carefully selected items which make fantastic presents, especially at Christmas.
