The Edition 2014 the Guide to restaurants 2014 by Davide Paolini, already the Sun's signature 24 Hours of Radio 24, continues to grow – this issue touches the 482 pages – Thanks to the arrival of new employees, They cover territories which in previous years had not received the attention they deserved.
As it stands the philosophy that since its inception the features: do not give votes but only enter the premises that are considered worthy of mention, whether restaurants, pizzerias, wine bar or even street food and shops which became kitchens with shop, developing as experiences of taste and atmosphere, where it is always the choice of prime quality products and customer care.
The Guide, composed of synthetic cards that contain the essential information to make an informed choice and aligned to the taste of each, accompanies the local reporting with a symbol "original" that highlights the peculiarities.
In addition to the classic symbols such as those of the "Untouchables", of the timeless "go secure" or "Behind the counter", from year to year are more than service added, aiming to bring to the fore new "phenomena". If last year the "new entry" was "with your feet in the water", that meant those – by the sea, on board Lake or along the banks of the rivers – that you seek in summer evenings, new to this edition 2014 are two: the places marked by the symbol "Fumoir", namely the premises equipped with a vacuum cleaner and then spaces for those who do not resist without smoking during the meal or want to enjoy a cigar with a brandy after dinner, and those accompanied by "Silent", characterized by acoustics that allows you to sample the dishes without being disturbed by noise particularly annoying. Should be one of the most cared for but it isn't.
