Augustus Harris | Covent Garden Restaurant
NOTE: We haven’t visited Augustus Harris yet, but in the meantime, however – as an integral part of our never-ending quest to loyally and humbly satisfy as many of your intellectual, psychological, social and emotional requirements as possible – we present to you a little preview of what it’s all about…
This joint is named after the manager of the Drury Lane Theatre in the 19th Century. Augustus Harris was famous for his extravagant pantomimes, and for being a great “bon vivant”.
The spirit of Augustus is already present at the corner of Catherine Street, which boasts the man’s bust, and if the new deli/eatery is inspired by Augustus’ love for food and drink, you can expect much indulging in its Italian-inspired delicacies.
During the day, the space is an artisanal grocery shop, specialising in Italian wines and produces. At night, it becomes a Venetian bacaro, serving ciccetti – small plates and Italian wines.
We’ll be back with the inside scoop…
