It’s just your type.
If, that is, you happen to like critically acclaimed, achingly aesthetic Italian restaurants founded by vaunted chef Stevie Parle (also behind Craft London, Rotorino and Pastaio) whose food Jay Rayner has described as “better than in Rome”.
Which, we’re assuming, you do.
So we thought it may interest you to know that Parle and the team have gone and fully rebooted their menu just in time for autumn. Joining old favourites (like that cacio e pepe), is newness in the form of handmade ravioli stuffed with porcini and ricotta; casarecce (short, grooved pasta noodles) with romanesco, anchovy and breadcrumb; roasted partridge in agro dolce (a sweet and sour Italian sauce); Josper-grilled rump steak with salsa verde; and whole roasted seabass stuffed with walnuts, and wrapped in fig leaves. And as you’ll know if you’ve already visited, there’s a host of traditional aperitivi (like the Cynar Spritz) and top-shelf wines available by the glass (like Uniqo’s Lagrein, rarely seen in restaurants, and Barolo Speciale) to help wash it all down.
It’s worth a few pennes.
