Review on Pellicano
Pelican motifs show up in some of the colourful artwork that decorates this long-running Chelsea favourite, Pellicano. This family operated restaurant has been open since 2000, and it has a contented neighbourhood feel. Yellow and blue colours help to create a sunny Mediterranean mood, and tables under the canopy are popular in fine weather.
Sardinia's native regional cuisine dominates much of the seasonal menu, whether it's peppered ham with grilled Pecorino, homemade maccarrones pasta with lamb ragù or a salad of Sardinian artichokes with golden beetroot and bottarga (salted mullet roe). Elsewhere, you might find venison carpaccio with myrtle and quince compote, baked whole wild sea bream with potatoes, and grilled veal chop with broad beans, peas and mint.
Weekly specials and fixed-price lunch menus are worth noting, and the comprehensive wine list has a fine showing of bottles from Sardinia and regional vineyards on the Italian mainland.
