As you guys may know, I love to travel. This year I’ve been to a.o. Colombia, Cuba and Italy and I just find it really nice to get to know not only the culture, but also their food. So when I was offered diner for two at the Mirror Lounge & Restaurant of the Hub Hotel in Milan, I was very excited. Me and my boyfriend had a great time, and I would love to tell you all about it…
The Mirror Lounge & Restaurant is part of the four star Hub Hotel, Milan. It’s situated only half an hour North-West from the city centre, in a calm neighborhood. Such a shame me and my boyfriend walked there, because we later found out that The Hub Hotel provides a Shuttle Service, available on request and depending on availability from and to stations and buildings nearby.
When we arrived at the hotel, we were kindly welcomed by the staff who lead us to a table in the middle of a wonderful restaurant, which had the typical elegance and modern touch that I had come to know from Milan.
We felt very excited about this dining experience and were both open to suggestions from the staff. Their service already showed us that they knew what they were doing, so we openly discussed which menus would be nice for us. In the end, my boyfriend took the backed swordfish medaillon as main course and cinnamon scented apple for dessert and I went with the beef fillet and sliced fresh fruit. We also had a salad and french fries as side dishes. The full menu can be found here.
I think that the photos give you a nice impression of what we had, but if you’re not convinced yet, here are some “from hodgepodge to haute cuisine” rates…
Although I love Italian food, I love it even more that this beautiful hotel restaurant in Milan does not only offer Italian dishes. Ofcourse these meals are all made with Italian precision and passion, but the menu is very versatile. And I can tell you that everything tasted even better than it looks on pictures. My boyfriend also had a blast and although we weren’t even that hungry when we arrived, we were so so content when we had this dinner.
I don’t know much about the hotel, but the Mirror Lounge & Restaurant has a nice & calm ambiance. It’s very modern and there is enough space for privacy, which is something I appreciate. Furthermore it’s the staff who make the ambiance bubblier and fun.
