SquareMeal Review of Macellaio RC Union Street

A haven for enthusiastic carnivores, this casual Italian follows successful openings in South Kensington and Exmouth Market, with some drama added via an elevated stage on which meat is prepared in the ‘dining theatre’. RC (Roberto Costa) sold a restaurant chain in his native Italy before opening Macellaio (‘matcha-lie-yo’) RC South Kensington in 2012. Specialising in Fassone beef from Piedmont, this 60-day dry-aged beef is the star; from Italian-style tartare bound with Tuscan olive oil, to slices of bresaola with buffalo mozzarella. Elsewhere there are pasta options, as well as tarts, pizzas and focaccias available from the open-air bakery.

Jeanpaul C. bronze reviewer 19 October 2016

The third version of the Macellaio RC opened its doors to the customers recently in Southwark. RC which serves as the initials of the founder’s name “Roberto Costa” comes with the assurance that whatever you will have in the restaurant would command nothing but the finest meat which are imported weekly direct from locals farms in Piemonte. The new restaurant is unlike any of its compatriots; it is based on the theatre themed restaurant where two roles of butcher and meat kicks in. Talking about the ground floor, they have arranged catwalk styled theme where the diners are always kept entertained by the butcher who shows his skills on the main stage. Moving to the second floor, the meaty theme is completely overtaken by the baking version. There you will find yourself aroused by the aroma of deliciously baked breads and cakes which mostly would not end up at your desk. READ MORE:
