Stendhal Bistrot Xmas Edition (MI) — Lombardia Secrets

The Christmas pop up of the famous Stendhal Milano restaurant comes to life inside the 5-star VMaison in Brera, pampered by fairy lights, winter decorations and the best festive cuisine.

First temporary restaurant of Stendhal Milano, a fine custodian of Milanese history and its dandy atmospheres of the late 19th century, a Lombardy institution born 35 years ago from an idea by Italo Manca and owned by the Forti family since 2000, the brand new Bistrot is located in the heart of Brera inside VMaison.

A boutique hotel that reinterprets the Regency style with elegant combinations characterized by fabrics and wallpapers inspired, in particular, by the traditional Uzbek ikat patterns, it is the perfect setting for a Christmas retreat with great scenic impact.

We wanted to offer our customers the opportunity to immerse themselves in a truly special environment, perfect for Xmas parties and gift exchanges with friends, with the added bonus of our best holiday cuisine.

(Marcello Forti, owner Stendhal Milano)

With the charm of the European noble mansions of the early 19th century, the restaurant rooms, as well as the magnificent garden, are, in fact, characterized by representations of animals and forests with refined furnishings that speak of distant lands, from Colombia to Morocco to Sicily, enriched with magical holiday decorations.

An à la carte menu accompanies the guest throughout the day, from breakfast to dinner, with dishes designed for sharing and a special evening proposal for the most romantic appointments.

Obviously, the signature dishes of Stendhal Milano cannot be missing, such as the saffron risotto or the Milanese veal cutlet with roasted new potatoes, but also delicious seasonal recipes such as pumpkin, gorgonzola cheese and chestnut cream soup and, obviously, the Christmas desserts, such as artisanal Panettone served with cream ice cream.

The dishes are accompanied by a drink list designed for the best convivial moments, full of sparkling wine proposals and cocktails among the most loved classics.

Truly perfect at any time of the day, Stendhal Bistrot can be enjoyed with friends or for a relaxing work break, by booking the romantic veranda or, on sunny winter days, in the magical garden, taking advantage of the outdoor heaters, to immerse yourself in a truly enchanted Christmas.
