Restaurant - B-Roof, Grand Hotel Baglioni, Firenze

The restaurant

If you love Florence, you can't help but be fascinated by B-Roof, a place with unique character and a more than a century’s old history. The Grand Hotel Baglioni, which houses our restaurant, was opened in 1903 and is a true symbol of the city of Florence, having hosted celebrities such as Guglielmo Marconi, Giacomo Puccini, King Umberto II, Enrico Caruso, Rodolfo Valentino and Gabriele D'Annunzio. In the very beginning of his novel Paolo il caldo, Vitaliano Brancati writes: “23rd June 1952. Here I am seated on the terrace of the Hotel Baglioni, in love with my wife. It is 10 p.m.”

Over the years, the "terrazza del Baglioni" has taken on various names. In the 1950s, for example, it was the Astrolabium Club and hosted a popular RAI night-time music programme that also launched Fred Buscaglione. After a long period of being known as Terrazza Brunelleschi, in 2017 came the re branding. Today, B-Roof is the heir of this long tradition.

CHEF

The cuisine offered by Leimer is traditional but innovative, reinventing the colours, flavours and aromas of classic Tuscan dishes by using selected high-quality products from the local area.

He started his career on cruise ships and then progressed to more classic dining, a path that led him to Terrazza Brunelleschi almost 15 years ago, now known under its new name, B-Roof.
