RED Feltrinelli

Read, eat and dream in Porta Romana

The name of this bistrot inside the Feltrinelli bookshop in Porta Romana is an acronym for “Read, Eat, Dream”. RED Feltrinelli is the ideal place to buy a book and maybe start reading it right away, while you’re having breakfast or over appetizers. RED was designed to allow its guests to spend a few hours in a relaxing space, full of inspirations so to make reading a 360°-wide experience.

You can start your day at 7:30 AM with a nice breakfast, or you can go there for a lunch break and choose simple but tasty dishes that go from the hamburger to first and second courses, salads and the special of the day. Some examples? Among the day’s specials we once tried the spelt, chickpea and cherry tomatoes salad or the cod fillet with lentils and a mint yogurt dressing- both great. On the càrte you will find an exceptional sliced meat with balsamic vinegar or the shrimp salad with oranges and olives.

If you have a free afternoon, why not buy a book, choosing it while having a snack? Or, on the way home from work, why not indulge yourself with a different end-of-the-day, going to the bookshop for a sundowner or a full dinner? You will have plenty of time for it: RED Feltrinelli closes at 23:00 PM.

If you’re indecisive and need a little advice, there are shelves with books recommended by readers, completed by a taf that states the name of who recommended it and why. For the risk-takers who love closed boxes, instead, you can find a “blind books” area where each volume is completely wrapped up in paper with few lines handwritten on it that vaguely defines the plot or genre.

And if books aren’t enough to feed the minds of dreamers, RED Feltrinelli also proposes old-time entertainement with book presentations, encounters with authors, small concerts, themed happy hours and workshops for kids on Sunday afternoons. In conclusion, RED Feltrinelli is a place that has an all-around offer that will be perfect for your every whim: to read, to eat and, above all, to dream every day.

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences
Milan has to offer.
