South Tyrol, Italy
We do not know Merano, not as much as we wish we did. However, we do know Linda (what a beautiful name!), who opens the door of Monocle pop-up shop for us while her son Marco is turning off the lights. Linda does not know us, but she hands us the book we were looking for, saying a�?This is for you’ and, when we ask a�?Where can we have lunch?a��, suggests without hesitations Restaurant Meteo. a�?Ask for Agata and tell her I sent you there’. For the first time we promptly approve of a restaurant even before trying it. It will not be easy to find it, but its nostalgic and learned style a�� of which we would like to steal a piece every time a�� will make up for this difficulty, along with the fulfilling and intelligent culinary innovation that always pleases our palates and hearts.
