CARDAMOM JUNCTION

Cardamom Junction in Milan is a harmonious blend of South Indian and Italian flavors, meticulously designed to embrace the essence of both cultures. Primarily a restoration project, the restaurant seamlessly marries the authenticity of traditional South Indian Malabari cuisine with the warmth of Italian culinary traditions.

 

Upon entering, the space unfolds into a tranquil setting reminiscent of old homes in Kerala, characterized by darker wood tones and accents of brass and bronze. The acoustical ceiling, initially a standard structure, has been transformed into a canvas of textured jute-finished wallpaper, cleverly mimicking the richness of wood. The walls feature intricate paneling resembling the undulating form of banana leaves, offering a visual feast in lush green tones.

 

In the seating area, the wooden floor exudes a timeless charm, creating an ambiance that is both real and controlled. The palette is tastefully balanced, with vibrant red accents on the sofas adding a touch of warmth without overwhelming the senses. The design aims to be neither too loud nor too subdued, but soothing in its entirety.

 

The pizzeria, seamlessly integrated into the space, showcases a similar meticulous design approach. Bells, suspended in the entrance, create a playful and welcoming feature, allowing guests to partake in the joy by ringing them. A dedicated shelving area becomes a visual celebration of spices, adding an authentic touch to the dining experience. The semi-open heating area, adorned with undulating fabric, completes the design, creating an intimate yet inviting space.

 

Cardamom Junction is a restaurant that is both aesthetically pleasing and culturally rich, inviting patrons to savor a unique and delightful culinary journey.
