The Factory Kitchen is a compelling hybrid — an informal trattoria with rather formal northern Italian cooking, like those restaurants you sometimes find hidden in the warehouse districts of European cities that just happen to have a Michelin star. The dishes are very composed, each is special, so deciding what to order will be your dilemma . This is worth the trip downtown. I recommend starting the evening next door at his other restaurant Officine Brera, as the bar is stunning and you can even sit outside by the fire, so chic!
The Star of Factory Kitchen is chef Angelo Auriana, who is regarded as one of the best Italian Chefs of our time. Quality ingredients are the centerpiece of each dish.
Angelo’s mandilli di seta a delicate handkerchief pasta, with almond pesto that melts in your mouth is a “not to be missed” pasta when dining there. The porchetta is about as delicious and mouth watering as can be, but that could be said of everything on the menu. The focaccia calda is in the style of recco, the small Ligurian town famous for it. It is two layers of thin dough stuffed with melting imported cheese. YUMMY!!! Save room for desert because there is cannoli.
This is the perfect way to check out what is happening in the food scene downtown, and I am certain you will want to go back the next weekend to Officine Brera! Buon Appetito!
