Squaremeal Review of Lurra ?

Built around an impossibly small open-plan kitchen with its own charcoal grill, this sleek new sibling of mega-popular Donostia takes its cue from the Basque country's 'erretegia' BBQ restaurants, dishing up huge slabs of flame-licked Galician beef alongside superlative small plates. Simplicity is key – from a luxurious, earthy assemblage of fried ceps, duck-egg yolk and foie gras shavings or tempura courgette flower stuffed with creamy brandada to zesty cobia (black salmon) tartare with a saline hit of trout caviar. Alternatively, those with trencherman appetites might fancy sharing a whole turbot or a daunting 14-year Rubia Gallega rib from the grill, perhaps with something from the all-Spanish wine list. The handsome interiors also let nature do the talking – think swathes of blond wood, marble and white stone.

    Lurra is a sleek looking outfit. The entrance is small and initially leads into a narrow space. On the right were some refrigerators boasting an impressive range of 14 year Rubia Gallega “Galician Blond” Prime Rib which forms part of the menu (but more on this later). Thereafter you...

    Sam Stewart Etc :: Sam Stewart etc: Lurra Restaurant Review

    I had been reading about Lurra, the new sister restaurant to Donostia, located across the street in Marylebone and we booked it to go with our friends Paul and Chris who had been away for the summer.

    We started with cocktails at Seymour Parlour, the new bar inside the recently opened Zetter Hotel in Marylebone. The bar is cosy and charming with a bit of an antique/old-school décor and the cocktails are reasonably priced (£9.5-£10.5 which compares well to other spots in the area).
