Food to a Sicilian is not just food. Food is an experience. As someone who has grown up with a chef as a father, it's very hard that I am impressed when dining. If your looking for a dining experience unlike any other, I highly recommend trying SciuRum in downtown Palermo. It is smart to reserve online early.
"The MEMENTO Restaurant offers sensorial-gastronomic journeys invented by the chef through a sequence of courses designed to rigorously respect a well studied and perfect equilibrium between the five senses.The structure of the tasting menu rhythmically follows the seasons, adding value to the excellence of raw material and proposing shades of ever-changing combinations."
