Restaurant Torre is located on the sixth and seventh floors of the new tower at Fondazione Prada’s Milan venue, designed by Rem Koolhaas. The restaurant has seating for 84 guests and is arranged on three levels slightly offset from each other to recreate an ideal viewpoint. The first two are furnished with wooden tables and Executive chairs by Eero Saarinen and feature a selection of paintings by William N. Copley, Jeff Koons, Goshka Macuga and John Wesley.

The third level features original furnishings from New York’s “Four Seasons Restaurant” designed by Philip Johnson in 1958 and elements from Carsten Höller’s installation The Double Club (2008-2009). Inspired by the tradition of Italian restaurants, the walls feature artist’s plates created especially for the restaurant by John Baldessari, Thomas Demand, Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg, Tobias Rebherger, Andreas Slominski, Francesco Vezzoli and John Wesley; forming a series open to new contributions.

The triangular outdoor terrace overlooks the urban space and features the typical porphyry paving and metal grills characteristic of Fondazione Prada’s exteriors. On the seventh floor is the chef’s table, an exclusive and reserved space with dedicated services, characterized by a glass wall with a view of the kitchens and a private terrace. Torre’s menu is authentically Italian and draws on the best regional traditions, while the desserts offer a range of the great classics of Italian patisserie.
