All About Italy (USA) - - Lifestyle - Sascha Mallinck­rodt

In the wake of the world­wide trend, which sees av­o­cado bars in Am­s­ter­dam, Lon­don and New York, the first Ital­ian eatery to­tally ded­i­cated to the av­o­cado opened in Via Madonna dei Monti, in the his­tor­i­cal and trendy heart of Rome. Be­hind the Im­pe­rial Fo­rum and the Colosseum, its lo­ca­tion is the per­fect one both for lo­cal av­o­cado lovers and tourists. Francesco San­tilli, one of the founders, ex­plains how the idea of the con­cept bar came about: “First of all, from look­ing at mar­ket trends.” and he adds “We like to eat and try new things and when we no­ticed this process of food in­no­va­tion con­cern­ing the av­o­cado, with the suc­cess of the first in­ter­na­tional monothe­matic open­ings in Am­s­ter­dam and New York, we thought that Italy could also be in­no­va­tive. And nat­u­rally we wanted to start from our home city, so we chose Rome.” Av­o­cado in all its many shapes and serv­ing styles – in smooth­ies and milk­shakes for break­fast; on toast, sal­ads, tacos or in mini burg­ers for a quick lunch; and even in the more sub­stan­tial din­ner dishes. The Av­o­cado con­cept bar will make the green fruit from South and Cen­tral Amer­ica the prin­ci­pal in­gre­di­ent of ev­ery­thing that is served, from food to drinks. Av­o­cado Bar opens ev­ery day from morn­ing to night, with proper bar, cafe­te­ria and dif­fer­ent tables where you can ei­ther eat quickly dur­ing your lunch break, or more com­fort­ably for a leisurely din­ner; it’s also pos­si­ble to take the or­ders away or have them home de­liv­ered.
