One of the best examples of Milan's New World charm is the mid-century modern (a term I have recently learned while furniture shopping) paradise, oTTo. It's nestled deep in Milan's Chinatown and is a third-wave coffee shop, bar, brunch spot, and work space. They also hold regular events and workshops. If I lived in Milan, I like to think that this would be my go-to spot, but if I'm being honest, I'm probably not cool enough.
