“Fuorimano” literally means “out of the way”. Don’t be scared, though, you will totally be glad you dared to push Off The Beaten Path towards Milan’s north side because this is easily one of the best places to have your weekend brunch.
Milan is the Italian capital of Design and thanks to those visionary architects (and investors) who were able to see the big picture, a lot of abandoned buildings or warehouses have been turned into interesting meeting points or restaurants, especially in the suburbs or the peripheral areas. Fuorimano is very close to Hangar Bicocca, just to name one of the symbols of Milan’s adaptive re-use projects (read more about it on my article about Hangar Bicocca here on Spotted by Locals).
Fuorimano is a delightful eatery as well as a co-working and reading space. They provide brunch during the weekends, have a special lunch menu Monday to Friday and serve pretty decent hamburgers, pizzas and cocktails at night. I definitely recommend trying their weekend brunch, before all else: Fuorimano offers five different brunch options, including a veggie menu and a gluten-free menu; all of them are equally luscious and your coffee/tea and juice will keep flowing for the price of your brunch.
If you’re in need of a well-deserved cup of Joe or are staying close to the area you should grab a bus and pop into Fuorimano to enjoy the atmosphere of this warm and versatile relaxing restaurant. You won’t regret it!
