On my dream summer wish list? To stop by Marigold in Rome, helmed by Domenico Cortese (a chef from Calabria) and Sofie Wochner (a baker from Copenhagen), plus an international team of baristas, servers, and cooks (“between the kitchen and the dining room,” they say, “we speak seven different languages”).
The result is a restaurant and micro bakery with Roman-meets-Nordic appeal, a shop filled with house-designed ceramics, and, sometimes, flowers foraged from the Aurelian walls on the coffee bar.
Have a look around.

Sofie writes, on Instagram, of her trip with Samina to source ceramics: “Our mission was to find all the tableware that would eventually set the Marigold table, that is a flair of nordic minimalism, modernity but with a respect for Italian handicraft and material, too.” At right, a bundle of wildflowers foraged from Rome’s Aurelian walls.
