Best Brunch in Italy and Possibly the World - il Teatro at Four Seasons Hotel (Milan, Italy)


We started our descent as calm as possible but as we saw the sweets we ended up skipping

These steps lead you to the best brunch in Italy and possibly the world!  We are not exaggerating!  We almost lost our minds at il Teatro's Sunday Brunch at Four Seasons Milan.

I really didn't expect the Four Season's Brunch to be so fun, relaxed and whimsical but it was!  I loved how everyone from the toddlers to the more mature group were DRESSED!  Seriously, I saw an eighty-plus year old woman rocking a badass Gucci ensemble with fishnets and cute booties--and they were from this season!  I mean, we are in Milano.

Once you reach the bottom of the stairs you are greeted by one of the lovely il Teatro "guides" and they will take you on a little journey around the restaurant so you can get your bearings and create your tactile plan of action!  Here is our version of the tour:


THE MAIN DINING ROOM

Eggs made to order!
In the main dining room you can visit the egg station or the raw bar for oysters.  There also isn't a shortage of Prosecco.  We just let the cocktails keep on flowing, but please note that you pay for every single one--our cocktail bill was more than the brunch!
Salute


THE KITCHEN

This is where the magic happens!

Magic!
This is not just a working kitchen; there is a full buffet inside with some fantastic food options as well as two chef's tables!  

Come on in and have a seat.


Other than the Chocolate Room, I think the kitchen is my favorite!  They have so many options:


  • Pasta
  • Pizza
  • Polenta
  • Carving Station
  • Soup
  • And so much more!


THE CHOCOLATE ROOM

The "Chic"olate Room is everything and more.  We dedicated an entire post to it.  This year's theme was inspired by Milan's Fashion Week.

THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS (FOYER)

Before you can even reach the restaurant there are all kinds of goodies for you from sweets to savory meats.  It was really hard to figure out where to start.

Cheese & Bread

I totally missed this section until the end of the meal!  I was far too distracted by the desserts!




The Meat

Just look at it!




The Sweets

No words can describe how good this all is.  I am glad we were able to go and walk all 250 steps at the Duomo afterwards to burn off the calories!

Dolce Wheel

Cakes and Pies, Oh My!

Gelato Station


Beautiful Grounds

Besides the fantastic food and service Four Seasons Milan has to offer; you can also enjoy the beautiful architecture of the property.  Originally a convent dating back to the 15th century, the building is now a gorgeous hotel where Dr. J, my sister and I have all decided to hold some portion of each of our weddings here!  

La Veranda 

I am pretty sure my rehearsal dinner will be here.

If you get a chance you HAVE to visit the Four Seasons in Milan.  It is only a short train ride away from Venice and other popular destinations.  You will not regret it, we promise!
