milan: giacomo bistrot

A cozy, yet undeniably swank restaurant, Giacomo Bistrot is the younger, slightly hipper cousin of the famed Da Giacomo restaurant, one of Milan's fine dining institutions.  Here, there are soaring ceilings,walls lined with leather-bound books and soft lights that illuminate the faces of the pretty people decked out in Milan's latest fashions, dripping in jewels in the way only Italians can make look good. 

The wines are excellent, as are the veal dishes and the pasta alla funghi. Request a corner table in the front room and sit side by side on the banquet to better view the mise-en-scène.
