Glam, the brand new sophisticated restaurant on the Grand Canal, was awarded its first Michelin star in November 2017
Just one year after it opened, this prestigious restaurant, located in a prime position overlooking the Grand Canal, was awarded its first Michelin star in November 2017. Set within a tranquil, secluded corner of Venice, far removed from the hustle and bustle of St. Mark's Square, Glam is situated inside Palazzo Venart, the Serenissima's latest luxury hotel.
The brainchild behind its menu is Enrico Bartolini, the only Italian chef boasting four starred restaurants for a grand total of five Michelin stars (also in Milan, Bergamo and Castiglione della Pescaia). He has also just opened a promising new restaurant in Bologna. During the day, the restaurant's intimate, conservatoire-style dining room which overlooks a courtyard, is lit by a large glassfronted window offering breathtaking views over the Grand Canal and several of the city's most stunning palaces. At night, the restaurant is bathed in a more romantic ambiance, enhanced by suffused lighting and the details of the venue's minimalist, chic décor. The restaurant, helmed by resident chef Donato Ascani, serves traditional Venetian dishes upgraded with a futuristic twist and enriched with contemporary pairings that intensify the fabulous flavours of the Lagoon.
Richly imaginative, the cuisine focuses on a careful selection of fresh, seasonal market produce. The whole is complemented by an extensive wine list that in addition, to featuring the best vintages from the Veneto region, boasts an impressive selection of the best French and Italian labels. www.palazzovenart.com/en/restaurant-bar
