The name says it all. Owned by Dolce and Gabbana, this fashionable Milanese restaurant and bar is not exactly a temple to minimalism. The opposite in fact. Gold is bling central. There’s not a surface that isn’t in some way bedecked with gilt and sparkle. The light fittings, the bathrooms, the staircases: everything shimmers. Understatement is an alien concept here. The space is divided into two parts, a formal upstairs restaurant, open for dinner only, and a downstairs bar and a bistro area, open all day. Gold has fast become a fashion crowd hangout, the place to head for those who live to be fabulous and like to be looked at.
