Aimo e Nadia bistRo was born from the happy encounter between the culture of Italian gastronomy and that of design: Il Luogo di Aimo e Nadia, an establishment reference of Italian gourmet cuisine for over 50 years and Rossana Orlandi, one of the most influential avant-garde design gallerists. Two Italian excellences, internationally recognized for the quality of their work, have given life to a common project, capable of declining the respective excellent characteristics in a simpler formula.
A convivial space in which the personalities of Stefania Moroni, Alessandro Negrini and Fabio Pisani, owners of Il Luogo di Aimo e Nadia, and of Rossana Orlandi, express themselves in a complementary way, each one in its own sphere, to give life, together, to a bistro which combines the charm of interior design, created in collaboration with Etro, with the pleasures of taste and conviviality, fundamental elements of the gastronomic proposal and service.
The bistro cuisine is based on the same principles of Italianness, selection of raw materials, respect for producers and the territory, typical of Il Luogo di Aimo and Nadia, applied in this case, to simpler proposals, designed for fruition throughout the bow of the day. The ingredients come from specific areas of our peninsula, indicated in the menu, as in a sort of virtual map of Italy.
Sabrina Macrì is the chef of BistRo. After attending ALMA International School of Italian Cuisine, she joined the Alajmo group, in Ristorante Quadri in Venice; later she joined the cuisine staff of VOCE and in 2019 arrived at Il Luogo. Under the human and professional guidance of Chefs Negrini and Pisani, as masters and mentors, she was supported and encouraged so that she could bring out the talent and establish herself as a young woman at the leadership of an important Milanese restaurant.
Chef Macrì valorizes BistRo thanks to an imprint of Italian style, proposing dishes that exalt each ingredient and enhance the rich heritage of national food and wine, a cuisine that has always had in its core the quality of the ingredients.
The bistro reflects Rossana Orlandi’s style and creativity, in a sort of extension of her adjoining Gallery, from which come the furnishings and works: vintage pieces skilfully combined with new productions, signed by known and emerging designers, discovered by her. The environment is strongly characterized by Etro Home wallpapers, fabrics and upholstery, an expression of the textile culture and brand values, complementary elements that give harmony and enhance, at the same time, works, functional furnishings and decorative elements, creating a unique setting of great charm.
