Squaremeal Review of Macellaio RC Exmouth Market ?

A haven for enthusiastic carnivores, this casual Italian displays a butcher’s block in the dining room and slabs of beef and whole tunas swinging in the windows. RC (Roberto Costa) sold a restaurant chain in his native Italy before opening Macellaio RC South Kensington in 2012, specialising in Fassone beef from Piedmont. Exmouth Market adds Sicilian tuna to the mix, and the surf & turf approach informs the entire menu: from cicchetti of fried egg with sliced salted tuna, and Fassone head meat with dandelion salad, to tuna and beef tartare, and a choice of tagliata and sirloin steaks. Some dishes combine both (think rigatoni with guanciale and tuna), but the consensus is that Macellaio’s five-week dry-aged Fassone sirloin is the star. Sprinkled with Tuscan olive oil and rock salt, the meat possesses firm yet silky texture and drips with flavour. Equally rewarding is latte dolce fritto to finish (thick, deep-fried cream) and the lengthy, all-Italian wine list. Whichever way you like your steak, you won’t be disappointed here.

Walking just by it give you the aroma and the cosy feeling of some tantalizing meaty dishes that are cooked the Italian way! The menu is just the way I like it; small, concise and limited. It as it seemed had been divided into the meat and not meat section which...
