SquareMeal Review of
Dieci Restaurant & Lounge at No. Ten Manchester Street Hotel
Warm tones, seductive lighting and trendy Christopher Guy seating create a mood of low-key metropolitan luxury at Dieci – a serious Italian restaurant appended to the boutique Ten Manchester Street
Hotel. The kitchen deals in regional flavours, overlaying classic ideas with some contemporary riffs and unusual twists – from celeriac soup with fried artichokes or octopus carpaccio with
beetroot, potato salad and paprika vinaigrette to lobster spaghetti with Calabrese chilli or baby lamb shank braised in Barolo with Sardinian fregola and saffron. To finish, aged Italian cheeses
with truffle honey and walnut bread are alternatives to the likes of Sicilian pistachio semifreddo with hot dark chocolate. Dieci also boasts a suave lounge and terrace, where guests can enjoy
all-day aperitivi with hand-rolled Cuban cigars, big-name Champagnes and a thoughtful choice of international wines.
