Cracco-Peck's creative menu is custom-made for Milan's expense account diners. The two Michelin stars and consistently high ratings in the Italian Gambero Rosso and Veronelli dining guides show how seriously food is taken here. Although loved and hated for his controversial ingredients, Carlo Cracco's best dishes are often the ones that seem most bizarre. For a showstopper, try the pasta with sea urchins and coffee, or opt for one of the tasting menus (€130-€160). Although Cracco-Peck would raise nary an eyebrow in New York, Paris or London, Milan tends to equate fine dining with tradition, so you'll find this place frequented primarily by foreigners or Milanese looking to impress.
