Review on Cafe Murano

November 2013 saw the opening of Cafe Murano by Michelin-starred chef Angela Hartnett, located on the original site of Pétrus where she honed her culinary skills with Marcus Wareing and Gordon Ramsay. Designed by acclaimed architects Russell Sage Studio, the long narrow room is softly lit, featuring chocolate brown leather banquettes and dark wood tables, together with a white marble-topped bar with additional seating.

Hartnett has appointed Sam Williams to head the kitchen having previously worked alongside her at Murano for the past two years. This new venture offers a more informal and relaxed approach with regard to both its setting and food than its older sibling, with cichetti served at the bar throughout the day.

Reasonably priced dishes draw inspiration from the northern regions of Italy with starters such as warm octopus, chickpeas and pesto or wild boar fettuccine, which can also be served as a main course. Follow on with hake, potatoes, olives and thyme or for meat lovers there's braised ox cheek, wet polenta and chestnuts. When it comes to desserts you could choose a classic tiramisu or maybe the hazelnut and chocolate tart paired with cream.

The 100-bin wine list brings together some great wines from specially selected Italian vineyards.
