The new Met Restaurant
Fashion addicts rejoice! Famous designer Armani has chosen the beautiful city of Venice for his new ‘home’ and has taken up residence in the San Marco Sestiere, an exclusive district to host a boutique that is just as exclusive.
An opulent atmosphere reflecting the beauty of the history of Venice and a Michelin starred menu featuring locally sourced products. Welcome to an amazing place.
“In a city like Venice,” wrote the critics, “continuing to amaze people is an arduous task”. However, the new Met Restaurant (its full name is the ‘New Met Restaurant e Rose Room di Raptus & Rose’) has managed to pull this off. The magic begins with the locale. We find ourselves in the hotel where Antonio Vivaldi came to compose, Sigmund Freud to ponder and Thomas Mann to write. Gloria Beggiato, the visionary heiress of a family of hoteliers, catapulted the hotel into the new millennium, by creating a luxury, five-star hotel brimming over with personality. The enogastronomic experience lives up to the expectations of the venue.
In 2005, the Met was awarded a Michelin star and since 2012, the restaurant has been headed by Luca Veritti, a chef who trained under maestros like Gualtiero Marchesi and the Cerea brothers. The magic has now come full circle thanks to a fabulous restyling project. Opened last July, the New Met carries the signature of Silvia Bisconti, the brainchild of Raptus & Rose, a couture fashion house. On arrival, guests find themselves immersed in an enchanting, secluded dining room surrounded by Murano glass lamps, Fortuny fabrics, antiques and design objects – an explosion of colours, mirrored in the floral aesthetic of the dishes. Veritti’s cuisine confirms the chef’s predisposition for creativity and lightness.
