Valentine’s Day 2024: chefs’ menus Milan

It may be a mainstream celebration but there is such a wide range of culinary menus dedicated to Valentine’s Day that it would be a shame not to talk about it. It can always be an opportunity to treat yourself to a pampering and to discover how chefs express love through their dishes, so why not try it?

Let’s face it, whether it’s your first Valentine’s Day together or one of many, deciding on the type of restaurant (and therefore menu) to go to celebrate can be tricky. A romantic dinner, an elegant one, something indulgent, or a more casual restaurant? By now, the choices are endless, and couples in love can continue to fall for each other, bite after bite, without ever forgetting the reason for the tête-à-tête. Whichever proposal you choose, in the ideas that follow, you’ll find experiences worth remembering!
