Plato is the restaurant in Milan that contains the word chic and superfood inside.
The reference of the name is to the myth of Plato’s cave, an invitation to knowledge, in this case to the knowledge of how and how important it is to know what you are eating.
In fact, such a nascent place alone in Milan. A new restaurant, refined and trendy integrated by CLS architects, where it offers superfood dishes proposed in captivating and tasty forms.
Let’s start from the basics: it’s not that superfood is something strange and exotic, broccoli and blueberries are also superfoods, common foods, which we eat every day, and Plato’s menu in this sense is a real sample of exoticism, and wholesomeness. These are all foods rich in vitamins and nutrients that are excellent for the well-being of the body. Foods such as blueberries, berries, seeds, but also salmon, broccoli, beets and oats, which are rich in polyphenols, vitamins, antioxidants and minerals.
It turns out that behind the project there are two years of study and research by a team of creative and nutrition professionals, including a research in neuroscience and an idea by Mariangela Affinita. Great. How surely excellent are the raw materials used, starting from Moringa (a plant native to northern India which, we are told, gives fruits, flowers, seeds and roots rich in vitamin C, calcium, iron, potassium and vitamin A) which it consumes in the form of powder and is a powerful supplement for the immune system with beneficial effects on the liver, on the health of the eyes, skin and hair, as well as on the bones.
The main dish is the veils, thin sheets of special flour, free from yeast and gluten, which contain delicious, fresh and useful food treasures for your well-being. The menu includes both salty and sweet veils. The drinks list includes extracts and smoothies and scented waters.
The materials and coatings to create the venue, inspired by Piranesi’s views and traditional traditional architecture, reinterpreted in a contemporary key. The blue of the logo is taken up in the ceramics which, in a veiled reproduction, shows architectural views printed on a large scale on the walls. The floor is made of handmade Etruscan black terracotta and laid in a herringbone pattern, while the rest of the room is made of natural materials: marble for the tops and wood for the dark stained boiserie.
Outside the restaurant in Milan Platone there are small tables and seats protected by a large awning recalling the old markets of the Italian tradition.
