“La Griglia di Varrone” restaurant changes

Known over the years as “La Griglia di Varrone“, the restaurant led by Massimo Minutelli since 2014 has now changed its name to “VARRONE“.

Varrone in Milan synonymous with excellent grilled meat

True to its tradition, the change brings with it a natural evolution in the historical culinary proposal and style.

The same that has positioned it among the restaurants in Milan as the undisputed address where to taste the best cuts of meat from around the world.

Varrone’s statement and claim is precisely ‘The Philosophy Of Meat Excellence’, as this is truly the spirit that guides the historic brand.

Massimo, the owner, personally dedicates himself to a thorough search for the best producers at an international level, which is why he considers them and calls his suppliers of excellence ‘true travelling companions’.

But how to communicate and express this constant search? Nothing better than a dedicated event! This is why the Special Presentation Dinner was organised on 30 May!

Varrone was born from my passion: meat and its preparation have become a philosophy of life. Massimo’s is a love story!

The curiosity born during gastronomic trips around the world, the search for the best cuts around

The challenge of cooking gourmet grilled meat… the firm convinction to offer only top quality meat

The presentation dinner and El Buey 106 Kg

VARRONE’s ‘Special Presentation Dinner’ features the brand’s philosophy and research, exclusively unveiling ‘El Buey 106 kg’, one of the largest specimens ever handled in Italy, weighing a remarkable 106 kg.

The specimen is one of a kind, bred in Galicia on the grounds of the Gutrei company, reaching a weight of 16 tonnes with controlled, healthy and natural nutrition.

The best cattle, bred in the traditional way: Gutrei from Galicia

We are in Spain, in the region of Galicia, where Gutrei selects the best cattle from the north of the peninsula. The company was chosen by Varrone‘s Patròn, Massimo, both for the selection method and the awards received.

It is in fact the only company awarded with:

  • 1 gold medal in 2018
  • 2 gold and 2 silver medals

for the best meat in the world, in the prestigious World Steak Challenge competition with the Roxa d’Ouro brand.

Environment and nutrition for meat excellence

One of the best meats in the world with unique flavour, quality and tenderness.

It is obtained thanks to the geographical and agroclimatic environment typical of the area, respecting the traditional feeding of cattle with grass and maize from the Gutrei herd.

Founded by the Gutierrez brothers, who have lived with the family since childhood and have passed on their passion for traditional cattle care and feeding.

Bettella and Maiale Tranquillo

Another excellence, this time Italian presented at the dinner is Azienda Agricola Bettella which communicates its breeding philosophy with its Maiale Tranquillo brand.

Characterized in fact by outdoor pastures and adequate space, but also a genetic selection and quality nutrition that is the basis of the value of their fat.

It takes 2 years for the breeding stock to firm up the meat and develop the right layer of fat to reach 300 kg in weight. The result is a product of the highest quality.
