ALT is the new project which Niko Romito, chef of three Michelin star restaurant Reale, considered to be one of the best restaurants in Italy if not the best. The project is part of the Niko Romito academy which will enable students of the school to run and operate this place along the road (the Statale 17) of Castel di Sangro where he and his sister operated their first restaurant before it moved to Casadonna.
Niko Romito said the new spot will be completely managed by the students including the communication and social media.
The idea behind the project is for people on a road trip to stop and spend some time eating, dining, having a snack or breakfast in an informal place on the road.
ALT is the natural extension of the bread laboratory PANE which is just behind ALT. It is from here that bakery products which are either sold or delivered to various places in Italy are made.
Niko said that the students will use the social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram) of the Niko Romito Academy to communicate and to showcase what will be on offer at ALT.
On Facebook, Niko told his students “good luck. It’s up to you now.”
This is not the first project that Niko creates that involves students. He has created Spazio in Milan, Rome and Castel di Sangro as fully fledged restaurants where students of the academy can train in a real restaurant.
His aim is to open more Spazio restaurants even outside Italy.
