As one of the most respected Italian chef’s in the capital, chef-owner Giorgio Locatelli has partnered with mastermind designer David Collins to create a 21st century art deco-inspired sultry dining experience that is one of London’s best. Hemispherical cream leather banquettes, curved mirrors and dim lighting create a casual yet sophisticated atmosphere, with a hushed intimacy just as suitable for romantic trysts as for high powered business dining. Don’t expect dazzlingly complicated dishes as Locatelli takes ingredient-led authentic regional cooking seriously, letting seasonal flavours shine in his simple, refined and perfectly pitched dishes. As popular with serious foodies as it is with A-list celebrities, the menu changes frequently according to the best available produce, and securing a reservation within weeks ahead may require some patience or good connections. Cross your fingers that dishes such as the intensely flavoured minced pork wrapped in savoy cabbage paired with pan-fried risotto, or the home-made linguine with Cornish crab, garlic and chili will be on the menu. Bookings essential.
