Warning: your Sunday lunch tradition is about to get totally roasted.
Because there’s a new kid in town: it’s called Pranzo della Domenica, it’s taking place every Sunday at Cafe Murano, and it’s seriously good.
If you haven’t yet had the good fortune of encountering the Cafes Murano, they’re a pair of intimate, glossy, yet homely Italian eateries founded by the critically lauded chef, Angela Hartnett. Based in St. James’s and Covent Garden, they’re essentially more relaxed versions of her Michelin-starred restaurant, Murano, but still offering the same delicious Italian fare.
So, it’s already a pretty good deal. But it’ll be even better when you take your nearest and dearest along for Pranzo della Domenica (i.e. Sunday Lunch), when, for a mere £30 a pop, you can tuck into a monthly changing feasting menu styled after the cuisine of different Italian regions.
This month, this cuisine happens to be plucked from Umbria, a leafy region bordering Tuscany. Which for you translates into dishes like tagliatelle with sausage ragu; braised lamb with lentils and salsa verde; stracciatella cheese with pickled mushroom; and torta pinolata – a cake made with lemon and pine nuts.
And to wash it all down? Some wines specially chosen from the region, of course – specially discounted to match your meal.
NOTE: Pranzo della Domenica takes place every Sunday at both Cafe Murano sites, and costs £30pp. To book in, simply head to their website HERE.
