Uliassi is Italy's newest 3-Michelin-star listed in the 2019 edition of the prestigious red guide- a seafood restaurant that manages to capture the magic of the sea in its creative menu.
Opened by Mauro and his sister Catia in 1990, the restaurant sits directly on the beach in Senigallia on the eastern coast of Italy. A magical place that changes with the seasons, passing from the brightness of the summer to the melancholic but nonetheless charming colours of autumn.
The menu offers simple and contemporary cuisine, elegant yet rooted in evolving tradition. Fish is the main ingredient, but game and vegetables also feature.
Among the great chef classics are wafer of fatty duck liver and hazelnuts, ricciola (amberjack) alla Puttanesca, crunchy red mullet with parsley soupand candied rhubarb through to more creative dishes like "Il mare dentro" (the sea inside) made with codfish and monkfish tripe, turbot heart, cod liver, cuttlefish liver and turbot.
Now a three-Michelin-star restaurant, Noma has changed, but not necessarily on the plate. According to Kenneth Foong, it's all about the way the team works, which is closer to a tech company than a traditional restaurant. Read our exclusive interview with Noma's head chef.
