Le vecchie insegne del negozio che un tempo occupavano il locale fanno capolino tra il bar e i tavoli. La Ménagère, che sin dal 1896 è stato il negozio dei casalinghi dei fiorentini, da un paio di anni ha cambiato anima. E si è trasformato in un ristorante-bistrot, in cui sotto il soffitto a volte di epoca rinascimentale il gusto per il design post industriale ha mescolato oggetti vintage e arredamenti di design. Un recupero in chiave contemporanea che fa della Ménagère non solo un luogo dove consumare un caffè al volo e poi andare via di fretta. Ma un locale in cui socializzare, rimanere a lungo, sostare per leggere un libro o scambiare quattro chiacchiere seduti su uno dei divanetti nella grande sala a vista. Un luogo accogliente, nonostante gli spazi imponenti. Come imponente è il lungo tavolo in rovere che occupa un'intera sala, reso familiare dal calore delle lampade: piccoli punti luce che illuminano il bancone e gli ambienti.

Contemporanea è anche la proposta di cucina, che recupera e reinterpreta le ricette toscane e italiane. Nascono così piatti come gli gnocchetti di pasta choux arrostiti con cacio, pepe, mela verde e cous cous fritto. Oppure la guancia di manzo su crema di patate viola, cavolo nero e noci tostate. Sotto l'insegna del locale, in nome del recupero della vecchia identità, una piccola rivendita di casalinghi e anche un angolo verde, dove la fioraia Ilaria potrà consigliarvi nell'acquisto di fiori e composizioni esposte sulle mensole del locale. Il bancone bar all'ingresso, attivo fin dalle sette del mattino per la colazione, di sera si trasforma nel regno del bar tender Luca Manni: famoso il suo Spritz La Ménagère, divenuto ormai un cocktail icona della carta. Ma il locale di via De' Ginori è un posto iperattivo: tutte le sere durante il weekend la vecchia rivendita di casalinghi si trasforma in un locale con musica dal vivo e concerti al piano interrato, dotato anch'esso di cocktail bar.

About the restaurant Ristorante La Ménagère

LA CUCINA - Il ristorante La Menagere si trova Firenze, non distante dalla Basilica di San Lorenzo. Il locale propone un menù tipicamente mediterraneo, con specialità preparate rivisitando le ricette della tradizione. Molto buoni anche i dessert fatti in casa.

DA NON PERDERE - Senza dubbio consigliati gli gnocchi arrostiti con cacio, pepe, limone, mela verde e cous cous fritto, il salmone al miele, con finocchi e limone, nonché il cremoso di cioccolato bianco con sorbetto di mela al pepe di Sichuan.

LA STRUTTURA - L’ambiente è ampio e molto rustico, ma non mancano tocchi di sobria eleganza. Il personale offre un servizio preciso ed attento.

Ricordiamo ai Signori Clienti che il servizio di prenotazione si riferisce esclusivamente al ristorante e non all'aperitivo.

Great place to eat. We had mini cannelloni with smoked ricotta and Marmitako tuna. Both were excellent. There is also a big bistrot where you can also eat, drink and work.

This restaurant was recommended by my nephew and I was glad that he told us about it. The atmosphere is great and the food was great. It is not your typical Italian food. Smaller portions but so unusual and well thought out. I loved that we could pick a 3 or 4 course meal. We loved all the courses and they were just the right amount of food. The dessert was lovely.

Unfortunately, a horrible experience. I specifically asked the waiter if the dish contained meat and he assured me that it was vegetarian. When it turned out that the ravioli was filled with minced pork, the waiter began to justify that I had not asked him anything, raised my voice and blamed me. Apart from the accusations and weird excuses, there was no apology, as the waiter had not paid the full price for anything. Physically, I felt disgusted after this meal. In general, the service was not attentive. The cost of food is very high, and the quality is deficient. I wish I had read the reviews carefully before going to this place. Not recommended.

We were being completely ignored by the front desk staff. After 15min of waiting they finally told us the waiting time will be 1-1.2 hours. We agreed to it and waited in the waiting area. While everyone else was being greeted with a glass of wine and snacks, we were still being ignored. No one even took a glimpse at our side and after the told 1.2 hour has passed and no further update has been provided, we decided to leave.
