Boasting a heady haul of bars, restaurants, galleries and live music venues, Turin’s southern district of San Salvario is experiencing something of a revival right now. Headlining recent openings is Dash Kitchen.
With imaginative brio, architect Fabio Fantolino has converted an abandoned printing house into a slick mash-up of industrial brutalism and Mad Men flair. Black chrome ducts on the ceiling mirror the sinuous curl of a long stretch of black leather banquettes, while streaky rosso levanto marble and polished concrete are smartly contrasted by coloured glass pendants and plush velvet armchairs.
The somewhat schizophrenic menu, conceived by Alessandro Ferrero, is anchored by an impressive collection of artisanal beers, some of which find their way into the dishes – prawn cervice marinated with Maes Pils beer, for instance, a veal filet served with a reduction of Pauwel Kwak, and fish and chips which arrive at the table unexpectedly accompanied by a Belgian ale milkshake.
