The best recipe

A classic that doesn't die and reinvents itself: still lifes. Simple and hearty dishes, good price, home atmosphere and close treatment.


In times of empanadas in bottles, hamburgers, artisanal breweries and ginger lemonades, there is a classic that does not die and is reinvented:  still lifes . Simple and  hearty dishes, good price, home atmosphere and close treatment. The formula is simple and performing.There are people for everything, that is clear. Some like minuscule portions and different dishes; others prefer that the Neapolitan milanesaa with fries overflow the tray. Literally. The latter, for sure, are the ones that keep alive the  essence of the still life . However, beyond the  abundant rations and loyal customers, today these establishments have a plus in their favor:  vintage is also in fashion. Today a  still life with several decades on it is not “old”; it is revalued with its siphons, its old photos, its football coats, its simple tables and its unpretentious crockery. However, it is good to know that times change, trends bring new proposals, but the basics, what is the most important thing? simple, it remains immovable.  And, even if every time we make a getaway through the most innermost neighborhoods of Palermo, nothing like a Sunday lunch with the family, overflowing with pasta, omelette, slaughterhouse and —for dessert— flanked with a lot of dulce de leche.
