If Calvin Klein were a restaurant, he'd be Altro—and in fact, not entirely coincidentally, the king of minimalism did hold his 2004 Fashion Week party here. But this achingly contemporary restaurant is more than a trend. It's the second restaurant of polymath epicurean Marco Gorini (his first, also called Altro, is in a village by Lake Como). As an architect and a designer of deeply desirable kitchenware, Gorini was qualified to orchestrate this culinary-art-book-furniture hybrid—though not to run the glass-fronted kitchen. That is the domain of French-trained Fabrizio Ferrari, a chef with a refined feeling for robust cooking—spaghetti with tomatoes and cured octopus; crisped sea bass on cavolo nero and beets; steamed bream with artichokes. Gorini did select the 300-odd wines, and the restaurant also functions as a showroom for his wares. That visible kitchen displays his works in action, and downstairs there is an actual showroom, SpazioStrato, where his geometric, precise, crisp-edged stainless-steel pieces are waiting to be admired. There's also a bookstore and gallery on site. This spare dining room of buffed concrete is lined with a single endless black banquette, its tables separated by acres of luxurious space, and you feel it could, all by itself, reject any would-be patron dressed with insufficient style.
