Now that Roberto Maggioni is running the kitchen at Il Covo, who is taking his place at Locanda del Lago? The restaurant lets us know that a new culinary team is in place, lead by Walter el Nagar-Cestrone, a native of Milan who is named as the executive chef here as the restaurant celebrates a 20th anniversary with new menu items from Lombardy, such as market veggies baked in parchment paper and roasted bone marrow with crispy saffron-parmesan risotto cakes.
