Legare | Fresh pasta in the shadow of Tower Bridge

A restaurant power-duo are opening up a fresh pasta joint


Legare | Fresh pasta by Tower Bridge

Legare, meaning “to bind”, will legare itself the current frenzy for fresh pasta in the capital, by opening in the shadow of Tower Bridge this Autumn. 

It comes to us from Jay Patel (formerly the general manager of Spanish giant Barrafina) and chef Matt Beardmore (Sous chef at Italian stalwart Trullo) and the philosophy is to use seasonal ingredients, from “a hand-picked selection of suppliers” which will result in hyper-fresh antipasti & pasta dishes.

The menu will include such Southern Italian menu classics as burro e salvia (egg pasta with butter and sage); orecchiette with fennel sausage and swiss chard ragu; and stracci with crab, chilli, garlic, saffron and pangrattato breadcrumbs.

Looks like you’ll be in a bind just trying to choose what to have. 

NOTE: Legare is due to open this Autumn. We’ll be back with the full scoop then. In the meantime, you can check out their website right HERE.
