Specieret

Specieret

Stockholm, Sweden

A gastronomic bistro, it borders on the walls of the valued Gastrologik and shares its cuisines, its inspirations and its delicate character. Three small community tables in a little windowed room, and the exceptional ability to make the meal common but personal. The large chalk blackboard on the wall displays a short menu for dinner and a shorter one for lunch that always manage to sum up both of Sweden’s souls – land and sea…

Norms

Norms

Los Angeles, USA

Sooner or later, you too will discover (or enjoy again) Los Angeles. Among the many wonders of this city, we suggest having a meal at Norms chain’s first diner. Design and architecture of the Fifties with many original elements, a neon sign that stands out against the sky of La Cienega Boulevard, pastel glasses, an old-style menu, and the genuine Americans who people it will take you on a journey to a lost America. Since 1949, open 24/7.

Superba Food + Bread

Superba Food + Bread

Los Angeles, USA

You would not imagine such a diner to be in a parking on Lincoln Avenue (Venice Beach). Airy, fresh, graphical. Avant-garde. Forest green and off-white metal, white marble, bright wood. A minimalist design coloured by folkish details (Navajo blankets, fresh wild flowers, denim seats). Contemporary Californian cuisine. Not far from here, on Rose Avenue, you will find the first Superba Snack Bar, open for dinner and for the weekend brunch.

HTL Kungsgatan

HTL Kungsgatan

Stockholm, Sweden

In Italian, the word ‘pamper’ recalls the vice we often indulge in during a holiday, the deserved caress that can come from various sources. In Stockholm, on the main street Kungsgatan, a new-generation city hotel provides precisely that kind of indulgence towards the self-confident, emancipated, metropolitan traveller that dwells inside us. Here, every legitimate request becomes superfluous and outdated…

Casa Howard

Casa Howard

Rome, Italy

It all started from Mrs Howard’s visionary idea, when guesthouses did not exist yet in Italy. Casa Howard is a place where intimacy and character win you more than the many comforts of an anonymous luxury hotel in the city centre. It has no sign, just a writing on the intercom, as if the Howard family lived here. You step into the building’s hall and leave behind a bright Roman sunset…

Salumeria Roscioli

Salumeria Roscioli

Rome, Italy

Roscioli is one of the most prestigious bakeries in the capital, and a cabinet de curiositès devoted to Italian and international gastronomy. As if this was not enough, it is also a little inspired bistro – one you would be glad to discover just around the corner. You can sit among the shelves – crowded with precious salts, homemade preserves, bronze-died pasta – and the cheese and cold cuts counter to taste delicacies belonging to the Italian tradition, and sometimes revised with flashes of the appropriate creativity. A temple of flavours for anyone who thinks of cuisine as a continuous, intriguing, minute research.
