On the occasion of Milan Food Week I had the privilege of having dinner at @vun_andreaaprea, two Michelin star restaurant inside hotel @parkhyattmilan. Chef @andreaaprea_official from Napoli reinvented many dishes of the Neapolitan and Italian tradition, like caprese, ragú and amatriciana (that I strongly recommend). Happy to see Neapolitans who get their well-deserved success outside of their comfort zones whilst not forgetting their roots. . In occasione della Milano Food Week ho avuto il privilegio di cenare presso il VUN, ristorante due stelle Michelin all’interno dell’hotel Park Hyatt. Lo chef Andrea Aprea, campano, classe 1977, eccelle nella capacitá di reinventare piatti della tradizione campana ed italiana, come la caprese, il ragù e l’amatriciana (che consiglio vivamente). Felice di vedere Napoletani che trovano il loro meritato successo al di fuori della loro zona di sicurezza, senza mai dimenticare le proprie radici. . #MilanoFoodWeek #ParkHyattmilano #vunandreaaprea #MioMilano #thebespokedudes @edwardsexton tab collar shirt.

He made it into our Top Ten: “Best dressed men in the 2010s”. Of course he’s to be found here, too!
