The most sought-after Sunday brunch in the city is served at the Ristorante Terrazza Danieli, which offers a front-row view and a special menu for the famous Feast of the Redeemer. By Elena Binda
This is the most captivating terrace in the city, and has been frequented by everyone who's anyone, including Peggy Guggenheim, Eugenio Montale, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford.
It's the Terrazza Danieli, the restaurant of the Hotel Danieli, the lagoon's most iconic five-star hotel, situated on the Riva degli Schiavoni, just steps from St. Mark's Square. On Sundays in summer, from 12.30pm to 3pm, the restaurant's ‘Venice by Brunch' offers a fabulous selection of international breakfast classics, platters of Italian cold charcuterie and cheeses, typical Venetian hors d'oeuvres, fresh vegetables from the nearby Rialto Market and a kaleidoscope of desserts from every corner of the Bel Paese. In addition to the above, this oneof-a-kind brunch comes with live cooking demonstrations from a legendary chef who prepares a selection of tantalizing traditional hot dishes, including tagliatelle, grilled seabass and pork shank.
If you want to enjoy an unforgettable experience book a table on the evening of 14 July, the Feast of the Redeemer that has been celebrated in Venice for centuries with a magnificent display of fireworks reflected in the water.
When you watch this spectacular display from the terrace, while enjoying a fantastic six-course menu designed specifically for the event, you're in for an unforgettable experience (see pages 6-7).
