From Città Studi to Central Railway Station

 A romantic night out at Vietnam Mon Amour

Christiane Blanchet’s parents flew from Vietnam during the Independence War. After having landed in Paris, they fell in love with this romantic European capital and decided to settle here. Shortly after, Christiane was born.

As a student, she decided to move to Italy to visit its artistic beauties and, after having seen Milan, she decided to never leave it again. After eleven years spent teaching at the Faculty of Political Science, Christiane felt that she was missing something: she could not recognize herself in her everyday actions and she felt the sudden need to re-discover her origins. Thus, within a few years, she decided to open a restaurant, whose name pays homage to the French writer born in Vietnam, Marguerite Duras.

The restaurant is sheltered in an elegant, early ‘900 building: the guest immediately notices the bricks, the Vietnamese wood, the large windows with their red curtains separating the inside rooms from the outside garden, and the tablecloths adorned with silk threads… every single detail is magical. Try the bream with banana leaves and the rice crepes with chocolate. And, if you are on a date with your better half, ask for the mezzanine room: you won’t forget this romantic atmosphere for your entire life!
