Dolce and Gabbana the restaurant

The Dolce and Gabbana designers, Domenico and Stefano are set to open their first restaurant, Gold, on Via Poerio in Milan this week reported the WWD.

The 202-seat boite, just behind the duo’s Metropol show space, sports a first-floor gourmet restaurant, a ground-floor casual bistro – where smoking is allowed – and a small food shop that carries items from Gold‘s traditional Mediterranean menu. The designers, always image conscious, also commissioned a “healthy” menu with lighter options. True to the restaurant’s name, the decor gleams with golden and steel accents.

Timed to perfection to coincide with the end of Milan Fashion Week, the fashion crowd can mingle there before jetting off to Paris.
