Sustainable. Eco-friendly. Bio.
We hear these words every day more and more as the world is in a huge need of the change right now.
This change needs to be done in each sphere of our lives, bringing more awareness to this sensitive topic.
What about the restaurants? Can they be sustainable and if they can how they do it?
Let’s discover who are the eco-friendly heroes of our fast-developing Milan.
Even though it has opened quite recently, Urban BBQ can surely be called one of the most sustainable restaurants in Milan. The philosophy of the founder, Ronald Marx is based on simple rule which is to use the highest quality fresh local products.
The values of Urban BBQ are worthy of praise. First of all, there are no frozen or fried products. Everything is cooked at the moment, using fresh products and following the authentic American recipes.
The menu is very original and variable, only in Urban BBQ you can find the dishes like Clam Chowder, Burnt Ends or Potato Salad. Let’s not forget about the kings of the menu, BBQ chicken, ribs or the newest entry, Brisket. Thanks to their taste and quality it can easily be called “The best BBQ in town”. Urban BBQ also is a perfect place for vegans and vegetarians as it offers dozens of tasty plant-based options as well.
Enough about food though, why Urban BBQ can be called one of the most sustainable restaurants in Milan?
First things first, you will not find any plastic there. All the packaging is bio-sustainable, while the delivery is made via electric scooters. Last but not least, Urban is partnered with the companies who share the same value, like Amadori and Wami.

Bio, plant-based, extremely healthy. This is how we define Radicetonda.
The cuisine of this vegan heaven is based on only certified organic food, that has grown without the use of any chemicals. All of the dishes are prepared following the rules of the vegan cuisine, so there is not even a slight use of the animal products.
On top of that the oven used in the restaurants is electric, the cutlery is made of 100% biodegradable plastic and the furniture is realized with the recycled materials.
Like all of these was not enough Radicetonda has the ICEA certification as the bio restaurant.
