J'AI TESTE // FOOD EXPERIENCES

... the Social dinner (by MHKSD),  the olfactive aperitivo (@Magna Pars Hotel), the flashmob dinner (by Cena con me),  the night shopping in EATALY, the brunch 2.0 by James Beard in Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele, the supermarket of the future (by COOP for EXPO) ...

I went to eat the best restaurant of the world.

I finally go there after a few month
