FROM SICILY TO VENICE, THE TRADITION REINTERPRETED BY FILIPPO LA MANTIA
Sicilian cookery, rich in flavours, scents and feeling, combined with the Venetian gastronomical tradition: a few carefully-made dishes, always kept up-to-date.
“I like the idea of being able to recreate in San Giorgio an old-time atmosphere, when the cook used to offer seasonal products and the landlord welcomed you reciting the menu; and I wish to offer a relaxed environment where guests can feel at home. The menu of San Giorgio Café will vary continuously, it must be a kind of prolongation of home. The beauty of summer in Sicily has been my (Susan: refuso Italiano, penso: “sua” invece di “mia”) source of inspiration. Every element of the recipe alludes to my origins: the fruits and vegetables demonstrate the importance of always using carefully-selected quality ingredients. From the first course to the dessert, the whole menu is a journey through my personal history, the expression of a strong bond with my land and its culinary tradition”. (Filippo La Mantia)
