Far from the city center (from most Indagare-recommended hotels, it's a 30-minute drive), this trendy farm-to-table restaurant is a must during the warmer months. Surrounded by a park and located along one of Milan's canals, it truly feels like a jaunt into the countryside. Owner Alice Delcourt is obsessed with all-things natural, organic, low-impact and biodynamic, which shows in the menu and wine list here. The garden setting is exquisite: how unexpected to be dining surrounded by flowers, herb and vegetable patches so close to the city center.

Menus change often and are completely focused around what's in season. Delacourt, who is French and has worked in restaurants in New York and London, has created a truly special place at Erba Brusca and her philosophy can also be seen in such lovely details as the row of red bikes that line the restaurant entrance, which diners can use for a pre-meal or post-meal bike trip along the canal.
