Square Meal Review of Café Murano ?

This younger sibling to Murano occupies an old stomping ground for Angela Hartnett, who worked at the site when Pétrus was located here. The Café doesn’t attempt to punch at the same weight as its illustrious big brother, yet the high quality cooking, drinks and service deserve to be taken seriously. The interior might seem cramped, but don’t let that put you off – the atmosphere is “buzzing”, it’s fun and the staff are kept on their toes. The cooking is classic northern Italian; start with pork tonnato with rocket and Parmesan or a colourful salad of beetroot, pistachio and wood pigeon. Then move on to fresh crab, chilli and garlic linguine or share a celebratory sea bass with braised fennel and fried courgettes. If there are no tables available, ask to sit at the bar where you can admire the cocktail concoctions being created while tucking in.

    Now for a quick look at Angela Hartnett's much lauded Northern Italian restaurant, Café Murano. I dropped in with Dad The List for an indulgent Saturday lunch - a well timed visit as Angela has just announced that a second Café Murano will be opening soon in Covent Garden. Read more on Hot Dinners.

    We started off with the delightful house bread and some serious Planeta D.O.P. Val di Mazara Extra Virgin Olive Oil (available to buy on site). If the meal got stuck on a loop right there and then, there wouldn't be many complaints. We washed this down with, well more olive oil, but also a fine Cafe Murano Spritz...

Angela Hartnett

Growing up with an Italian grandmother, it’s no surprise that Angela Hartnett acquired a passion for Italian food from the very beginning. The British-born chef honed her skills under Gordon Ramsay at Aubergine and alongside Marcus Wareing at Pétrus, before winning a Michelin star in 2004 for her eponymous restaurant at The Connaught. In 2008, she launched Murano in Mayfair, with ‘brassier little sister’ Café Murano and Merchant’s Tavern in Shoreditch following in 2013.
