Monmouth Kitchen | Unconventional Fusion Dining in Covent Garden
Things that Italy and Peru have in common:
1) Ancient civilizations who apparently built incredible gift shops.
2) Dependence on coffee.
3) Not a huge amount.
4) Monmouth Kitchen.
The latter of which is situated on Monmouth Street in Seven Dials, and serves up a menu of high-end Peruvian and Italian dishes, all rustled up by the Nobu’s former Head of Private Dining.
The interior itself is commensurately good looking, with marble table-tops, and lattices of grey-painted bricks breaking up the space. The menu is split almost literally down the middle; half Italian, half modern Peruvian. Expect:
Tacos and seabass ceviche make a good place to start, while avocado & corn salad with blackberry dressing or Monmouth Kitchen’s signature smoked lamb cutlets with red anticucho sauce (served on a hot lava stone) make an even better place to continue.
Antipasti has beef carpaccio, burrata, or a trio of bruschettas, while the larger courses include pan-fried salmon with Calabrian chilli salsa, or a simple chicken & spinach risotto with Amalfi lemon zest.
The booze goes slightly further in blending the cultures, doing so quite literally with drinks like the Andean Negroni (Campari is out, a pisco & grape liqueur is in) or the Pisco Sour with peach liqueur & Chambord. And if that all sounds delicious?
It’s because loving cocktails is something we all have in common.
NOTE: Monmouth Kitchen is open daily for breakfast, lunch & dinner. You can find out more, and book, HERE.
