I visited Dry during my recent trip to Milan, there were 8 of us on holiday together- so we booked this restaurant in advance. With the Amalfi Coast, Tuscany, Naples, Rome, Bologna and so many other famous Italian towns right on your doorstep, it is difficult to describe Milan as a foodie cultured city. However, Milan is a chic city with plenty of stylish young adults looking for great food and entertainment, which is what led us to Dry described as a 'chic' and stylish restaurant by my favourite travel magazine, Condé Nast.
Dry served gourmet pizza and specialises in cocktails and focaccia bread as well. When I walked in I felt like I was in a cool restaurant in NYC or London, its very far from a traditional Italian feel! The staff were so friendly and I loved the atmosphere at the front of the restaurant where young stylish locals drank cocktails and began to unwind for the weekend.
We were shown to our table, and on the way I saw another table which featured a live cooking station too. The restaurant has some really cool features, like a projector with an artist making animals with his hands shadow, cool lamps and interesting objects as you observe your surroundings.
Our waiter Sirbian was the nicest guy, we ended up partying with him in Clubroom Eleven afterwards! What a great guy!
The menu only consists of salads, pizzas and Focaccia bread.. All quite innovative. Every pizza is a magharita and your toppings are served in a little bowl on the side.
The focaccia breads were tasty and baked to perfection- my favourite being mozzarella and tomato, we ended up reordering this dish a few times. It's a simple dish but the quality of the ingredients was divine.
The pizza was a bit too soggy for my liking, I prefer thin and crispy.. These were beautifully thin but quite soggy. The sauce used in the pizza was tasty- but I wasn't as impressed as the other reviews say. Maybe I just prefer traditional pizzas! Restaurant Borgovico in Lake Como, still serves the best pizza in my opinion.
The salads were lovely, we had one made with apple, iceberg lettuce and another with rocket, spinach and liquorice sauce! You could not taste the liquorice but the dressings were delicious.
For dessert there was only ice cream, which was made on site. It was pretty average, and was not as innovative as the salads!
Dry was a great experience and the service from Sirbian was fantastic, but the pizzas and ice cream could be a bit more adventurous. Overall my rating would be 3.5 stars
