Dash Kitchen, Turin
As a name for a restaurant Dash Kitchen brings up images of fast food or at least food prepared and consumed quickly. It also makes us think of a small place with bright colours and a few little tables for a quick bite. Add to that a tagline that says ‘good food & good beer, restaurant lounge bar’, and we are now thinking casual, perhaps pub-like, a place to meet buddies after work. So our surprise was substantial when Dash Kitchen, one of Turin’s newer restaurants, turned out to be a cavernous, dark, nightclub/bar-like place with a seriously industrial vibe.
