Trattoria Milano celebrating its grand re-opening at Eataly next week

Stepping into Eataly Toronto is like venturing into a world crafted solely to sate your every craving. Be it hand-tossed pizza, ricotta-filled pastries, fresh pasta or platters piled high with authentic salumi and cheese, Eataly is home to a paradise of Italian fare. As if all that weren’t enough, on Nov. 10, Eataly is reopening Trattoria Milano, its elegant, sit-down spot devoted to the traditional cuisine of Milan.

Opened in 2019, Eataly Toronto brought three stories and 50,000 square feet of culinary delights to Bloor Street West’s ritzy “Mink Mile.” At first, Eataly was home to three full restaurants—La Pizza & La Pasta, La Piazza and La Pescheria—with several additional bars and counters serving everything from aperitivi and lattes to panini, biscotti and more.

Trattoria Milano, a restaurant “inspired by Italy’s style capital,” according to the Eataly website, originally opened in February 2020. Closed soon after due to the pandemic, the restaurant never truly had a chance to shine.

Next week, Eataly Toronto is finally celebrating the reopening of its most splendid eatery. Highlighted by a mid-century modern feel and artwork by well-known Italian artists, Trattoria Milano sits in a cozy corner of Eataly’s second floor.

“Milano is one of Italy’s cultural cornerstones,” said Nicola Farinetti, Global CEO of Eataly in a 2020 press release. “Eataly Toronto’s Trattoria Milano will be a meeting place that celebrates Milano’s rich history and tradition through food, art and culture. We want guests to come to the restaurant and be transported to Northern Italy, through every element of the space and menu.”

On the menu, developed by Eataly Toronto's executive chef Rob Wing, guests will find a who’s who of Northern Italian favourites. Ossobuco, the ultimate in robust, rustic fare, is made with veal shank from Montpak Farms and feeds two to four people.

Carnivores will also marvel at the Cotoletta alla Milanese, a bone-in veal chop that’s breaded and fried. Among a list of risottos, Milan’s most famous dish, Risotto allo Zafferano, shines. With rich bone marrow broth, saffron and a generous amount of Parmigiano Reggiano, the dish is the type of bold nourishment cold months demand.

Cocktails include the famed, classic Negroni along with a sampling of fresh Negroni innovations. A wine list populated by bottles produced within a 100-mile radius of Milan marry the area’s terroir perfectly with every course.

Welcoming guests on Nov. 10 beginning at 5 p.m., Trattoria Milano will be open Wednesday and Thursday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday through to Sunday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. To make a reservation, visit the Eataly website.
