Lina Stores Is Finally Opening In West London

London’s museum quarter is about to get a new work of art.

Lina Stores is adding to its growing family of restaurants and delis across the city with an opening on Exhibition Road, serving up its famed hand-made pasta to dozens of carb-hungry punters in a characteristically stylish space with a wrap-around terrace. And Nudge Members are getting in before anyone else, thanks to a pair of soft launches for Nudge Members on April 17th & 18th, with 50% off the food bill to boot.

When it eventually opens to Joe & Jane Public, you’ll find it slap-bang in the middle of museum country, virtually within sight of the V&A and the Natural History Museum. Inside, it’s going to have all the classic designs elements that have made Lina Stores so distinctive – from the mint green stripes, to the opaline lighting, terrazzo flooring, and the vintage Tuscan credenzas and cabinets, there are few places that will be able to go toe-to-toe with it for pure aesthetics.

But thankfully the beauty isn’t all surface level. From the central open kitchen, the chefs will be busy prepping Lina Stores’ signature fresh-pasta-fuelled menu. You can expect all the classic stuff (burrata ravioli, crab linguine, 30-Egg yolk tagliolini, etc.) alongside a few new numbers too, including Jerusalem artichoke & ricotta tre latte agnolotti with lemon & pine nuts; and some lumache pasta with broad beans, guancial, mint & Pecorino Romano. And you can finish it all with a silky burnt caramel & marsala tart.

Washing it all down, there’ll be plenty of Italian wines (mostly organic & biodynamic), as well as cocktails from the venue’s feature bar too. Just don’t indulge too much…

…lest you make an exhibition of yourself.
