The food

Unlike the more pizza- and pasta-centric offerings at Eataly’s existing full-service restaurants, the complex’s newest sit-down spot focuses on rich and rustic northern Italian dishes. There’s an osso buco for four that comes with saffron risotto; fresh pasta pockets stuffed with veal and golden raisins in a buttery sage and pancetta sauce; and Milanese-style tripe. Trattoria Milano opens February 6.

The drinks

Signature cocktails that incorporate Italian vermouth, amari, and other ingredients from the Lombardy region. There’s even a Franciacorta cart for table-side service. The wine menu is made up of mostly northern Italian consignment selections, with special by-the-glass options thanks to a Coravin system.

The space

Tucked between the butcher shop and a quick-service counter, Trattoria Milano’s dining room is a nice escape from hustle and bustle of the market. Up to 76 guests can be seated between a wraparound bar and banquettes, and the walls—designed to capture the sartorial sophistication of Milan—are covered in microsuede.
