Square Meal Review of Murano ?

Angela Hartnett’s flagship continues to highlight a talent for refining Italian food that made her into one of Gordon Ramsay’s most valued lieutenants in the noughties. Whether you devise your own five-course menu (£85) or plump for just two courses (£50), Hartnett’s pasta is a standout: crab ravioli with almond pesto and grilled spring onions displays a masterful flair for handling strong ingredients, while baked potato gnocchi with homemade coppa and kale is typical of the “carefully thought-out”, “always memorable” approach. Starters might bring fresh-tasting charred mackerel, mussels, grapes, lemon and ginger; while mains could feature roasted mallard, breast and leg, with baby beetroot, sloes and hazelnuts. The wine list champions organic and biodynamic producers, with Italy to the fore. We’ve always found the ambience a little too hushed and reverential, but readers value the “tranquil atmosphere” and the “confident and knowledgeable” staff who oversee what feels very much like “an Italian fine-dining experience”.

    samphire and salsify :: Murano

    We arrived at a very empty Murano with just a few other diners in the restaurant and the decision to have no music in the background left the atmosphere feeling a little flat to begin with. Luckily there was plenty to look at as the restaurant is absolutely stunning and exudes wealth, some serious money...

Angela Hartnett

The latest Gordon Ramsay protégé to go it alone, Angela Hartnett chose to purchase her restaurant Murano from her former employers, rather than open up elsewhere. A long-standing association with Ramsay started way back at Aubergine in Chelsea. She played a key role in many of his openings, including her self-named restaurant at The Connaught, which launched in 2002 and netted a Michelin star in 2004, before closing in 2007, the same year that she was awarded an MBE. After 18 months away from the stove, Hartnett returned in the autumn of 2008 with two new ventures under the Gordon Ramsay Holdings umbrella. She took on the role of executive chef at fine-dining Murano in Mayfair (which scooped a Michelin star in 2009) & the more informal eatery at boutique hotel York & Albany in Camden, which remains with Gordon Ramsay Holdings following her departure from the company.
