Bel Gusto at Millennium Hotel
Meander through the splendid, light-filled lobby of Millennium Hotel and you'll stumble upon its elegant onsite restaurant. Servers dance around the linen-clothed tables in the airy space, refilling glasses of wine and serving cocktails. In the kitchen, the chefs are hard at work folding gourmet ingredients into artisanal pizzas, fine pasta dishes, and Italian-inspired specialties such as chicken marsala and balsamic-glazed pork chops. Scoops of ice cream spooned over melting chocolate cake and caramel apple tart arrive at tables for dessert, bringing meals to a satisfying end.
