Fashion and food go together like...well, traditionally they don't. And yet the most body-conscious of industries seems to have a taste for the culinary world. Dolce & Gabbana joined forces with another long-established Italian duo, Martini & Rossi, to launch Martini Bar (15 Corso Venezia; 39-02/7602-8485), in the courtyard of the designers' three-floor men's emporium. Regulars at the sleek restaurant (part 18th-century palazzo, part seventies disco lounge) include Victoria and David Beckham and Boy George, as well as supermodels who have actually been spotted eating carbs—fresh pasta, no less. • Roberto Cavalli chose Milan's Sempione Park as the site of his ultramodern, glass-walled Italian fusion restaurant, Just Cavalli Café (Viale Camoens; 39-02/311-817). The décor changes regularly—fur chairs featuring the designer's trademark animal prints one season, Asian prints the next. Goldfish swim about in bowls that double as centerpieces. • On a smaller scale, Krizia (23 Via della Spiga; 39-02/7600-8429) has opened a vest-pocket bar to revitalize shoppers at its revamped boutique. —James Patrick Herman
